With Christmas about to hit the nation's waistline perhaps it's time to sweeten the dietary pill by getting some exercise now. How about winter or extreme sports - skiing, snowboarding, or rollerblading - as recommended by Salomon, the specialist snow and outdoor sports equipment company, to battle the inevitable pounds? And how better to get to those sporting destinations than in the new four-wheel-drive Renault Scénic RX4 Salomon?
The limited edition Renault Scénic RX4 Salomon is the result of a partnership with Salomon which began in April 2000 with the aim of allying the two brands. The first part of the project involved the Renault-backed X-Adventure1 World Tour, a sports series organised around seven extreme sports events taking place in 11 countries, including Wales.
Off-roader meets extreme sports The Renault Scénic RX4 is a unique model combining the versatility of a mini-MPV, the equipment and comfort of a saloon car and the off-road capabilities of a four-wheel-drive vehicle. Based on the mid-range Privilège version and equipped with a number of exclusive features, this Scénic RX4 limited edition will be available with two engines: the 140 bhp 2.0 16V petrol and the 105 bhp 1.9 dCi common rail diesel.
On the outside, the vehicle makes its own statement with special 'Blizzard' 16-inch alloy wheels - designed to resemble a snowflake - boot-mounted spare wheel, large side body protection mouldings, plus the two side badges and Salomon logo on the bootlid. The Scénic RX4 Salomon is available in three colours - Platinum, Dune and Glacier Blue - a new colour introduced for the Salomon special edition.
But it's on the inside that the Salomon limited edition stands out from its RX4 brethren. Alcantara and canvas upholstery and perforated leather trim on the steering wheel create a more sporty feel in the cabin along with the control knobs for the electric windows, door mirrors, and seat adjustment handles, which are finished in soft-touch satin copper-orange. The door handles are aluminium-coloured while the dials feature orange figuring on a black background. Mirroring Salomon's range of back-packs, storage pouches and can holders made of canvas and netting are attached to the rear of the front seats - replacing the picnic tables from the standard RX4 - and the limited edition package also includes a Scénic RX4 Salomon-badged back-pack specially developed by Salomon, together with a bespoke boot-liner protecting the luggage area from the sharp edges of equipment such as skis and snowboards.
Standard equipment The Scénic RX4 Salomon limited edition features the following standard equipment from the Privilège trim level on which it is based. * Double optic headlamps and front fog lamps, trip computer, remote control central locking, four electric windows with one-shot facility on driver's side, 'Bull bar' effect front grille, 'Smart' Windscreen wipers that regulate themselves to the speed the vehicle is moving, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, rear accessory power point, centre cooler storage box linked to the automatic climate control system, storage trays under driver and front passenger seat, height-adjustable front passenger seat, driver's armrest, front carpet mats, plus three sliding and reclining rear seats.
On top of this the Salomon limited edition adds: * 'Blizzard' 16-inch alloy wheels and boot-mounted spare wheel, two side badges and Salomon logo on the bootlid, 140 Watt Single-CD/RDS Radio Hi-Fi with six speakers and fingertip remote control, satin orange instrument dial and switchgear detailing, map and can holders on rear of front seats, and metallic paint.
In common with all Scénic RX4's, the Salomon limited edition has the product's core features. Safety and Security features include: * Permanent 'Real-time' 4x4 transmission with viscous coupling, ABS Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution EBD, power-assisted steering, driver, front passenger and front lateral airbags, plus front and rear curtain airbags, RAID Renault Anti-Intruder Device which locks all doors when the vehicle exceeds 6mph, three point rear seatbelts for all three rear passengers, and ISOFIX child seat anchorage points on both outer rear seats.
This RX4 also retains Scénic's versatility with: * Three folding removable rear seats, all with head restraints, storage under rear seats and in the rear footwells, plus bottle holders behind the outer rear seats, height and lumbar adjustment on driver's seat plus height-adjustable steering wheel.
Options available on Scénic RX4 'Salomon' are: * Two electric tilt and slide sunroofs - £500 * Electronic tyre pressure monitors - £250 * Six CD Multi-Changer - £320 * Roof bars - £150
