Renault wins double at the Scottish Car of the Year awards

The All-New Renault Megane and Kadjar have won Best Family Car and Best Crossover at the recent Scottish Car of the Year awards, meaning consumers now have an even greater choice when it comes to award winners in the Renault range.

The All-New Renault Megane launched in the UK this summer, won Best Family Carr and was praised especially for its style, safety and high quality.

The stylish Kadjar crossover scooped the Best Crossover award and was highlighted for its space, style and value for money.

Stephen Park, President of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers, said: “An array of impressive new models has returned Renault to a position of strength in Scotland. The striking new Megane follows on from the Clio, Captur and Kadjar to give Renault a desirable and relevant model line-up that’s appealing to buyers.”

Speaking about the Kadjar, Park added: “Competition in the crossover segment was fierce but Renault’s Kadjar performs strongly across so many areas. It’s visually distinctive, well equipped across the range and the perfect size to cope with the demands typically placed on a car in this category.”

The All-New Renault Megane offers a unique styling which is more dynamic, more comfortable and more refined that its predecessor. In addition it offers a generous range of features which includes an 8.7-inch portrait central touchscreen, configurable 7-inch TFT instrument display, Active Emergency Braking and convenience driver systems such as Handsfree Parking and Adaptive Cruise Control. CO2 emissions are equally as impressive at 96g/km with economy as high as 76.4mpg.

The Renault Kadjar is proving to be a bit hit with British drivers, having topped the tables in the Auto Express Driver Power Survey as Best SUV earlier this year, coming third overall our of 183 models. The Kadjar has also strengthened the brand’s presence in the crossover sector – building on the success of its compact crossover sibling, Captur. Its combination of striking design, efficient powertrains, spacious interior, high levels of standard equipment, best-in-class residual values and a five-star Euro NCAP rating have proved popular with British Car Buyers.

On receiving the double win, Paul Flanagan, Managing Director, Groupe Renault UK, said: “2016 has been an extremely busy year for Renault’s family car offering. We now offer the youngest model range in Europe and I’m delighted to see our latest family cars being recognised by the Scottish Group of Motoring Writers twice in one night.”
