The 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, just over a month after going on sale.
The stylish five-seat Scénic and seven-seat Grand Scénic, with 20-inch wheels as standard and available with innovative high-end safety and convenience features, were voted into first place, thanks to its design, practicality and a sense of fun.
John Challen, of the UK COTY Awards, 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 took 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 unprecedented 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.”
