This is Renault's new Grand Scenic which was just unveiled yesterday.

It is considerably larger than the 'ordinary' Scenic which made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in the spring.

However, you can still have this larger version as a five-seater or, as is more likely for some families, a three-row seven seater.

As you'd expect, it is longer, taller and wider and is higher off the ground - all part of the marque's decision to make this generation of Scenics look a bit more like SUVs than people carriers (MPVs).

Renault says there is more interior space while room in the boot is up 40 litres (to 780).

It will have 20ins wheels as standard which, again, underlines how they are accentuating the 'SUV' look.

Expect the usual run of petrol and diesel engines but there will also be a 'Hybrid Assist' diesel version which sounds interesting.

The smaller Scenic and its bigger brother are expected to go on sale here later on in the year.
