The French automaker first used the “Initiale Paris” nameplate for a concept dating back in 1995 – and rekindled a few years ago to signal the flagship variants of the Espace, Clio and afterwards the Koleos and Captur crossovers.
The brand is looking to offer the high-end experience on even more cars so the five-seat Scenic and its larger Grand Scenic sibling have been added to the roster now. The luxury trim comes with a new set of 20-inch alloy wheels and a premium looking front grille with “star pattern” and the “Initiale” lettering beneath the diamond logo. The premium-looking metallic Amethyst Black paint is exclusive to the Initiale Paris version, and the deal also includes LED cornering fog lights.
Even more premium features are to be found inside the cabin, with electrically adjustable heated seats complete with massage function, Nappa leather upholstery, and Initiale Paris chrome branding on the door sill. The center console trim is also new and there’s also different leather cladding the steering wheel and gear lever. The Initiale Paris trim is based on the Intens trim, so it packs additional perks such as a head-up display, Bose sound system, and the Easy Park Assist system. Powertrain options include the 1.2-liter gasoline engine with 130 horsepower or the beefy 1.6-liter dCi delivering 130 hp or up to 160 hp in the biturbo version.
