Renault win Big at Awards Ceremony

Renault were winning awards across the board at the Auto Express Driver Power 2016 Awards this week.

Renault ZOE and Kadjar came 2nd and 3rd overall in the awards. The All-electric ZOE won the Supermini category with the Clio taking bronze. The Kadjar was voted number one in the Off-Road/SUV category and finally the Scenic and Grand Scenic won the MPV category. Anyone would think that no one else was nominated!

These award wins are a massive improvement for Renault vehicles, especially considering that the awards are determined by the feedback from the owners themselves. Nearly 50,000 owners took park in the survey with 32 makes and 183 models ranked in one of the UK's largest automotive customer satisfaction studies.

Commenting on the Kadjar within the Auto Express Driver Power survey, one very happy customer said: "I absolutely love it - it's an absolute pleasure to drive. Being disabled, I had lost my independence and freedom, with this car, I have got it all back - and some!"

Brian Walters, Director, Research and Insights at Driver Power, said: "With the Renault ZOE the best performing supermini in terms of Running Costs; Performance; Ride Quality; Ease of Driving and In-Car Technology, it proves that superminis can excel in many judging categories long thought to be the domain of premium marques. Renault Kadjar has made an excellent debut in the awards. In addition to winning the Bronze Car of the Year Award and the Off Road / SUV category outright, it was also best performing SUV in Road Handling and In-Car Tech and among the top five SUVs in Running Costs, Ride Quality and Seat Comfort."

Mark Crockett, Director of Total Customer Experience (TCE), Groupe Renault UK and Ireland, said: "This outstanding result demonstrates the progression of our vehicles and reaffirms our commitment to quality. We are delighted to have the ZOE and Kadjar in the top three overall placings and it's especially pleasing that we have achieved such impressive rankings across the categories while also selling a record number of vehicles in the UK."
