Renault Grand Scenic and Scenic, 2016, static

RENAULT has announced UK prices for new direct injection turbocharged petrol engines that will arrive in the latest Scenic and Grand Scenic line-up in 2018.

The French company claim this new engine offers a significant improvement in driving quality with increased torque at low revs and greater and constant availability at high revs, while reducing fuel consumption and CO2emissions.

The new Energy TCe engine will be offered in other Renault models from next year and pricing for the new engine in the Scenic line-up starts from £22,005 on-the-road - a similar price to the current 1.2-litre petrol models.

The new 1.3-litre petrol engine, coupled with manual and EDC dual-clutch automatic transmissions, incorporates several new features including bore spray coating which improves efficiency by reducing friction and optimising heat transfer.

Other technologies reduce fuel consumption and CO2emissions.

As far as power goes the Energy TCe 140 engine has a CO2output of 122g/km and achieves a claimed 52.3mpg - some four mpg better than the 1.2.

The Energy TCe 115 - available in manual transmission only - has 220Nm of torque at 1,500rpm and delivers the same fuel economy as the more powerful engine.

Compared to the previous petrol engines it is a reduction in CO2by seven grams on the Scenic and 11 grams on the Grand Scenic.

The new petrol engine is produced at the Renault factory in Valladolid, Spain.
