Hi Quemlar - the 1.4 Scenic whilst being comfortable is very much underpowered and are usually issued under the Motability Scheme. The power to weight ratio is somewhat poor and therefore the engine has to work harder and in some cases not as fuel friendly as the bigger engines. The gearbox ratios are also much lower to cope with the less available power - if it were me buying I would go for nothing less than a 1.6 Litre
