These are the first spy shots of the all-new Renault Scenic carrying the production body.

Renault's cute little MPV is getting ready for a new generation which will be here by the end of next year, following a very possible debut at the Paris Motor Show early October 2016. Seen here is a fully camouflaged prototype carrying the production body which as you can see has very little in common with the current car that has been on sale since 2009, with a facelift launched four years later.

The A pillars are perhaps even more raked than before and this has allowed Renault to install a huge windscreen which should grant stellar visibility. As for the design, it will take many cues from the Megane and the overall shape of the car is much rounder than the outgoing model. Chances are the new Scenic will be a tad longer and wider than the old one and this should enable a more spacious interior cabin which is vital for a vehicle in this segment.

As far as the underpinnings are concerned, the Scenic IV will ride on the same CMF platform as the Megane which means it will be powered by an assortment of four-cylinder 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines sending their power to the front wheels through 5- and 6-speed manuals and a 6-speed EDC.

The interior cabin is also set to be a major departure from the current car and will employ the 8.7-inch tablet-styled touchscreen display from Renault's latest infotainment system.

Shortly after the new Scenic will be out, Renault will introduce the larger Grand Scenic which will be able to accommodate seven people.
