We had a 1.6 Megane Hatchback with the 1.6 16v engine and it was fine,good performance and economy, drove well even when fully loaded. The scenic is a bit higher and heavier so won't be quite as good.
As for the 1.9dci, it is only 105bhp on that version,it is a turbo diesel btw - we test drove a scenic and when compared to our Picasso, 2.0hdi (90bhp) it wasn't any better than the Picasso.

There have been reliability issues with the 1.9dci engine, but mostly the 120bhp in Laguna with the long service intervals. Changing the oil at 9K with fully synthetic oil in between services appears to have improved reliability.
