ROBUST RENAULT: The latest variation to Renault's attempt at creating a "cross" vehicle is named, aptly, the Scenic Cross.

Looking back at the old Renault Scenic RX it was an attempt – a rather unsuccessful one — made in 2000 to give the Renault Scenic an off-road look.

The automaker has decided to apply the same treatment to the new-generation Scenic but toned down. When compared to the previous RX, which had a spare wheel mounted to the tail hatch and all-wheel drive, the next version has robust bumpers, wider wheel arches and a slightly raised suspension.

The Cross look has gained popularity and an increased number of manufacturers are expanding their model ranges with similar variations. Renault is accepting that trend with its new model.

Expect to see the next Renault Scenic Cross launched in March 2013 at the Geneva auto show
