I was fully expecting to see the new one and be peeved that I'm stuck with my old one for at least the next two years, but so far it hasn't happened. I'd probably do a straight swap - old Initiale for new, but only because I ordered mine before the 2.0dCi 150 became available, and I'd really like the more powerful donk.

I really can't imagine the 110 horse 1.5 dCi being anything other than dog-slow either - after all, my 1.9dCi 130 isn't exactly quick. They're all saying it plods along quite nicely, but I'd be interested to see some 0-60 times (I'm guessing around the 15 second mark )

Renault expects 1.5 dCi to be their best seller the 1.5 dCi 80 bhp is OK in the Scenic II if you plod along. Asking a lot from the 1.5 in my opinion, it would not surprise me if it is dropped from the range after a couple of years ?
