Success at the Auto Express New Car Awards for Renault as they take home two awards with the All-New Renault Megane E-Tech 100% Electric being named 'Small Company Car of the Year' and the Clio winning 'Supermini of the Year' for the third time in a row.
The highly anticipated All-New Renault Megane E-Tech 100% Electric vastly appealed to Auto Express, being highly impressed with its distinctive styling, low BiK costs and host of driver technologies.
Steve Fowler, Editor in Chief, Auto Express, said:
“The All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric has been worth the wait, its blend of engaging driving dynamics, cutting-edge tech and usability taking it straight to the top step of the podium. Not only does it attract rock bottom BiK bills, but the sharp styling creates all the right impressions when it comes to impressing clients. The interior is a real highlight too, with a forward-thinking approach and some stylish trim choices.”
The New Megane is the first Renault in the new generation to be modeled on the advaced CMF-EV platform and styled with the new 'Nouvel R' logo. The EV boasts an impressive range of up to 280 WLTP miles on a single charge and includes a 12.3-inch dashboard display, 9-inch multimedia display along with fully integrated Android Automotive OS with Google services.
Following the success of the New Megane, Auto Express also awarded the Renault Clio with it's third consecutive 'Supermini of the Year' award. Steve Fowler added:
“Renault has cemented its success with the Clio supermini, following up on convincing performances in 2020 and 2021 to make it a hat-trick this year. At the heart of the Renault’s appeal is its ability to squeeze genuine family-friendly versatility into such a compact package, yet the Renault blends this practicality with a generous dose of visual appeal. Factor in a long list of standard kit and some tasty finance deals from Renault, and it’s not hard to see why the Clio has taken top honours once again.”
