Triumphant trio: Celebrating Renault & Dacia’s wins at the 2024 What Car? Awards
3 min read Published 19 Feb 24

We’re delighted to announce that it was an evening to remember at the 2024 What Car? Awards for three brands represented by Hendy. The awards are among the most influential in the industry, thanks to What Car?’s position as a trusted, independent and expert voice in car reviewing.

Let’s delve into the details of each award-winning model that stole the spotlight…


Renault clinched not one, but two top honours. The upcoming Renault 5 was voted ‘Readers’ Choice’, where What Car? readers voted for the future model that they’re most excited to see in showrooms. Coasting past competition from a 14-car shortlist, this new electric hatchback is all set to set a new standard in its category.

From a future star to a standout stalwart, the Renault 5 was followed to the podium by the Clio, which was voted ‘Best Small Car’. This popular supermini was lauded for its engaging road manners, all-round performance and excellent value for money.


Our second brand victory of the evening comes courtesy of Dacia. Hot on the heels of the Clio was the Dacia Sandero, which was voted ‘Best Small Car for Value’ for the third consecutive year. This popular hatchback has captivated both critics and consumers alike with its unique blend of utilitarian style, no-fuss performance and modest price.

Next up, the Dacia Jogger was crowned ‘Best 7-seater for Value’ for the second year in a row, with judges impressed by the spaciousness of its interior and its value for money. The magazine said the model “excels at moving seven people for not much money”. Can’t say fairer than that!
