It still wasn't brilliant though.

The cheapest and easiest method is to fit better speakers. Almost any aftermarket speaker will offer a better sound that your standard Renault ones.
I also assume you haven't got the Renault Cabasse Auditorium set up as this is quite acceptable sound quality wise.

In the first instance I would personally upgrade the speakers, no need to spend a fortune. If you are still not happy consider a better Head Unit.

Also the G Scenic has a lot of glass and is not ideal for acoustics. Extra padding in the door panels will help revent distortion and improve sound.

Well,many thanks to you all for this very "sound" advice !!!
Not sure exactly which way we are going to 'tune' too, but like the idea of a new Sony head unit with MP3 use of the existing volume switches...

Will let you all know, as soon as I do

Thanks again,
