This prestigious award recognises the significant achievements of Renault and Dacia in 2019. In 2019 Renault launched seven new models including the All New Clio, Captur, ZOE and Kadjar. Alongside these passenger vehicles, Renault introduced New Master and Trafic commercial vehicles to their LCV range.
TopGear.com reflected on what made Groupe Renault this year’s winner, “It’s the variety that’s key to Renault’s ascension to Top Gear award-winning excellence. Its mainstream cars are fine, but give it a brief to nail, a set of very specific parameters to fulfil, and it chases perfection quite unlike any other car manufacturer.”
Speaking on the coveted award, Vincent Tourette, Renault UK Managing Director said, “We are delighted to receive this award from TopGear.com. 2019 has been a fantastic year for Groupe Renault, with the launch of the All-New Renault Captur, New Renault ZOE and the All-New Renault Clio, the latter continuing a 30-year success story for the brand. Dacia continues to go from strength-to-strength and was one of the few manufacturers to post increased sales figures this year. But we don’t stop here, 2020 is looking even more exciting!”
But that’s not all!
Also, at the annual TopGear.com awards ceremony, the New Renault ZOE was crowned City Car of the Year. Pitted against stiff competition, the New ZOE triumphed to come away with the prize thanks to its impressive range, performance and bold character. TopGear.com hailed the 100% electric car, “Renault could have gone back to the drawing board and tried to rewrite the formula. But it didn’t – instead of an all-new ZOE, it’s simply revised the existing one. Chamfered the edges, fixed only what needed fixing and left the rest. Confident in its product. It’s even quite good fun”.
The Renault ZOE is capable of 395KM* on a single charge which is the longest range in the segment. Not only that, the 52kWh battery is capable of fast charging in just 30 minutes to provide a boost of 145km.
