Key standard safety features

Euro NCAP safety ratings

  • 5 stars out of 5 (based on the Megane E-Tech score from 2022)
  • Adult occupant protection - 88%
  • Child occupant protection - 89%
  • Vulnerable road user protection - 77%
  • Safety assist - 85%

While the Renault Scenic is too new to have featured in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, Renault as a brand did not rank well in the recent scoring. The French firm came 29th out of 32 manufacturers.

Safety experts Euro NCAP have awarded the Scenic a maximum five out of five star rating based on updated results from the Renault Megane E-Tech test back in 2022 – a car with which the Scenic shares many parts. In terms of comparisons with other family-orientated vehicles also tested in 2022, the Scenic performed similarly well in adult occupancy protection to the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer. The Renault outperformed the BMW for child protection, but the 2 Series was better at safeguarding vulnerable road users and reacting to avoid collisions with other vehicles.

The Scenic gets a lot of safety technology and driver assistance as standard, including a reversing camera, parking sensors for the front and rear, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring and an active emergency braking system with pedestrian and cyclist detection.

Warranty

All Renault models come with a warranty of up to three years with unlimited mileage for the first two years and then a limit of 60,000 by the third year - the Scenic expands on this by coming with 100,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first.  Every all-electric Renault gets an eight-year or 100,000-mile warranty on its battery too.
