The dis­tinc­tive fourth generation All-New Re­nault Scénic and Grand Scénic have been awarded the ti­tle of ‘Best MPV’ at the UK Car of the Year Awards 2017 to­day, just over a month af­ter go­ing on sale.

The stylish five-seat Scénic and seven-seat Grand Scénic, with un­prece­dented 20-inch wheels as stan­dard and avail­able with an abun­dance of in­no­va­tive high- end safety and con­ve­nience fea­tures, were voted into first place thanks to its de­sign, prac­ti­cal­ity and a sense of fun. The UK Car of the Year (UK COTY) Awards judg­ing panel is made up of 27 in­de­pen­dent, in­flu­en­tial mo­tor­ing jour­nal­ists who as­sess more than 100 new cars to pro­duce win­ners in 12 cat­e­gories, from which one over­all cham­pion is cho­sen.

John Challen, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the UK COTY Awards and ed­i­tor of uk­coty.co.uk, said of the All-New Scénic and Grand Scénic: ‘For sit­u­a­tions where space is a must – es­pe­cially for a large fam­ily, the Re­naults get it spot on. Prac­ti­cal­ity taken to a whole new level in a pleas­ant en­vi­ron­ment.’

In­deed, other judges im­pres­sions of the cars in­cluded: ‘ The best cure for parental de­pres­sion’; ‘The Scénic gets so much right for fam­i­lies, it just has to be the win­ner in this sec­tor’; ‘A car that proves there’s life in the MPV for­mat yet’ and ‘Style with sub­stance. Demon­strates Re­nault’s new-found con­fi­dence’.

Paul Flana­gan, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Groupe Re­nault UK, com­mented: ‘Re­nault in­vented the com­pact MPV and now with the lat­est fourth generation, the All-New Scénic has brought dis­tinc­tive de­sign, in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies and un­precen­dented safety to its cat­e­gory. To win ‘Best MPV’ so soon af­ter launch­ing in the UK from such a re­spected group of mo­tor­ing ex­perts re­ally is a fan­tas­tic ac­com­plish­ment and one that ev­ery­one at Re­nault UK is very proud of.’
