I think it depends on what model you have as to whether the windscreen is heat reflective or not, or if you specified it as an option when new.

Normally if it has climate control the windscreen will be heat reflective. If you have normal manual aircon, the windscreen may not be heat reflective, unless specified as an extra at time of purchase. Also now, just to confuse matters even if you have climate control the heat reflective screens will only be fitted to Privilege spec models or higher.
Also please bear in mind that the Scenic has a very large area of glass compared to a Clio. The Scenic will resemble a greenhouse and get very hot inside.

The best way to tell if you have a heat reflective winsdcsreen is to look at it from the outside, if it has a "purple/blue" tint to it it will be heat reflective.
