What appears at first glance to be a test mule for the next-gen Renault Scenic
is in fact a brand-new SUV project. The French carmaker recently revealed the Captur
, a compact crossover based on the Clio, and its latest mid-size SUV is based on the next-gen Nissan
Qashqai. The Scenic body of this particular prototype is simply a ruse to keep us off the scent. Evidence that this is a new SUV in the making is the bigger wheels and higher riding height. Renault
has also added some weight to the roof and front fenders to stimulate increased weight distribution.
