Question Scenic 6 speed gearbox? why??

Most of the new Scenics are now fitted with a 6 speed gearbox, why? What was wrong with the 5 speed on the older models? I haven't had a car with a 6 speed gearbox before and I'm a little daunted and confused why the car makers complicate driving even further by adding even more gears into vehicles. As the speed limit in town is usually 30mph or lower, what advantage is there in having these extra gears?
Just my thoughts
