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.’
