Renault Clio Wins!
Congratulations on being an owner of Australia's Best Cars winner of the 2013 Best Light Car.
All-new Renault Clio awarded as Australia's Best Light Car.
The results of the annual ‘Australia's Best Car' Awards have been presented today and the single Renault model considered for judging in the various categories has emerged victorious.
The all-new Renault Clio TCe 120 has been awarded as Australia's Best Light Car.
This is a significant award for the all-new Renault Clio as it is competing in a very busy market place.
The awards will be heavily publicised by the Motoring Clubs behind ABC, as well as by Renault Australia, and dealer staff should be aware of the award and use it in their discussions with customers and prospects. The Judges comments on the all-new Renault Clio included the following:
"The surprising 1.2-litre Clio Expression TCe120 earned the Clio the first place, impressing judges with a combination of performance, standard features and value for money, beating some big brands in the process. The on-road attributes are where the Clio really shines, however, with surprising flexibility and performance from the willing 1.2-litre engine and 6-speed automatic transmission.
"Handling, poise and ride from a vehicle in this price range was a notable stand out, with the Clio feeling very much at home in all driving conditions.”
"We are delighted that the ABC judges were able to clearly see the strength of the Clio offer in a very competitive market,” says Justin Hocevar, Managing Director of Renault Australia. "We did our homework when we specified the all-new Renault Clio, and the recognition we have received today is a strong endorsement of the vehicle's dynamic strengths as well as the offer it makes to customers in this price-sensitive class.
"We have a very well equipped vehicle at a competitive price that is a joy to drive and is stylish and chic at the same time.
"The TCe 90 model uses only 4.5L/100km and the TCe 120 consumes only 5.2L/100km, making both exceptionally efficient and affordable to own.
"The Renault Clio also scored very highly in the New Car Assessment Programme in Europe, which underlines its ability to offer comprehensive protection to its occupants, as well as being awarded the Best Supermini of 2012 by Euro NCAP. "In just a few weeks we will be launching the hero of the Clio family in the form of the Renaultsport Clio 200 EDC, which will add even more sparkle and performance to the Clio range.
"This ABC win is very important to us at Renault Australia. It is a signal that the all-new R Renault Clio should be on the shopping list of anyone considering purchasing a vehicle in the light car class,” Hocevar says.
