Renault scores hat-trick of awards

The Royal Automobile Club bestowed a trio of Fleet World Honours on Renault vehicles on Tuesday.

During the event in Pall Mall, London, the Clio received the Best Small Car prize for the second year in a row, while the Environment Award returned to Renault for its Kangoo Van Z.E, which also won the award two years ago.

The third win came in the Innovation category of the Van Fleet World Honours for the French manufacturer's new 1.6-litre twin-turbo engine.

The judges look at the quality of vehicles and how innovative and sustainable they are. Renault walked away with an array of prizes for the sixth consecutive year in the Fleet World magazine awards.

Editor Steve Moody said the Clio possesses everything drivers could want in a supermini, including space, style and affordability.

Last year the Renault ZOE won the Technology award, while the Kangoo Van Z.E. won the Editor's Award as well as the Environment prize in 2012.

The editor of Van Fleet World, Dan Gilkes, said Renault is the market leader in light commercial vehicles and it has now made the Kangoo even more comfortable.
