It’s not the biggest MPV out there but still offers a good-sized boot for sleeping in. People tend to build sleeping platforms that are 180cm or longer and make them fit by pushing the front seats forward. As a bonus, you can also enjoy the panoramic sunroof that lets you admire the stars at night. This seven-seater MPV is not only stylish and practical, but also fun to drive and easy on the wallet.
But what makes the Grand Scenic a great choice for camping enthusiasts? Well, for starters, it has a clever modular seating system that allows you to fold down or remove any of the five rear seats individually, creating a flat load floor and up to 1,870 litres of space. That’s enough room for a tent, a couple of sleeping bags, a cooler box, a stove, and whatever else you might need for your trip.
The Grand Scenic also has plenty of storage compartments throughout the cabin, including underfloor bins, door pockets, cup holders, and a sliding centre console with four USB ports and an AUX input. You can keep all your gadgets and snacks within reach, and charge them on the go. Plus, the Grand Scenic features a panoramic sunroof that lets you enjoy the view of the sky and the stars at night.
The Grand Scenic is not only practical but also comfortable and enjoyable to drive. The suspension is well-tuned to absorb bumps and potholes, while the steering is light and responsive. The Grand Scenic also comes with a host of safety and convenience features, such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors, and a reversing camera.
