A lot going on there. It looks a bit of a mess.

Is this a new car or a Life Cycle Impulse?
Bob Sacamano

As mainstream tourers go that looks OK.

I fear a set of smaller (and more typical) wheels will be all that's needed to take it from brochure picture to 'the real world'.

Looks ok but very busy, it'll be interesting to see how the Megane fares over here; likely to still be an irrelevance I should imagine.

Renault have made the odd decision to launch the cars over here in high spec, big engine, auto GT's; massive mistake.

But then what do I know, I have only been selling Renault for almost 15 years.

I preferred my Megane tourer. Not sold on the interior of the new Megane and I'd want to see them play their petrol hand. Vauxhall and VW are now below 100g CO2 with their small three pots, which makes them pretty competitive tax wise given that the diesel surcharge is here to stay. I'm due to order a new car around June time so this may be coming too late for me anyway.

I'll take the new Scenic please!

I quite like it but it does look quite busy in places, small estates appeal to me so I've got my eye on this one - having seen some 'first drives' on the hatch the interior pictures show the lower models as being nicer as the screen in the GT version looks Tesla-style awful.

I'd be amazed if they didn't do the 1.2TCE in various flavours between 100 and 130bhp with under 100g

Still just seeing this:

I'm not generally a fan of Focus size estate cars, but I like this.

A lot of cars in this segment that are designed as hatchbacks just don't seem to convert well to tourer mode. They all too often seem to look far too long for the wheelbase and way too busy after the B pillar. Which seems to be the case here.

Whereas a lot of cars from the segement above look better as a tourer.

I'd argue many look better as estates, Focus, Leon, Octavia, Ceed, Civic, Autis, all look better as estates IMO. As does this. The worst busy bits on this are at the front, which similarly afflicts the hatch.

A little odd that Renault reveal this and the Scenic on the same day.

I'd beg to disagree there. In my eye only the Octavia looks better as an estate and that is, sizewise, almost from the class above.
