The French carmaker has just revealed an updated version of their popular Renault Scenic multi-purpose vehicle. The refreshed 2007 Renault Scenic MPV now features HID-looking headlights and LED taillights, new corporate grille and new wheel trims.

Judging by the promotional photos that we have obtained today, the French car designers have done a really good job. The car looks modern and attractive and, which is not so common when it comes to restylings, also very organic: if you haven’t seen the base model, you will never know that it was given a face-lift here and there. Nice.

Under the short hood, the car gets a couple of new diesel engines: a 2.0-liter dCi, capable to produce 150 horsepower, and a slightly less powerful 1.9-liter dCi FAP Auto – Scenic’s first diesel mated to an automatic transmission.

Apart from that, the new Renault Scenics will be available to order with such options as a radio-CD/MP3 stereo system (you probably shouldn’t expect anything premium here,) a fixed panoramic roof that will make the vehicle’s interior look even more spacious, darker tinted glass that will not only give the car’s inhabitants more privacy in traffic jams, but will also prevent the cabin from overheating on particularly sunny summer days.

The height of the front passenger seat can finally be adjusted, too. Parking into a tight spot will also become less of a hassle thanks to the optional front and rear parking sensors.

There will also be such optional equipment, which is more common on executive sedans than on inexpensive family MPVs, like an automatic parking brake, rain-sensitive wipers and this sort of stuff.

Alas, still no info regarding the price.
