Renault has continued to rise up the ranks in the Auto Express Driver Power 2015 survey rising eight places to seventh overall out of 32 brands, ahead of many premium manufacturers, and building on last year’s six place rise.
Renault’s score of 87.08% was attributed in the survey to finishing fourth overall for running costs, seventh for in-car technology and eighth for ride quality. Customer satisfaction with reliability and build quality has also improved.
The 100% electric Renault ZOE supermini finished an impressive fifth overall out of 200 vehicles and rated as the best electric vehicle to own. ZOE was also rated the number one vehicle in this year’s survey for low running costs as well as second overall for ease of driving.
Auto Express said in summary of Renault’s performance: “Last year it scored 15th overall with 85.88 per cent, helped by the new Captur. Now, though, it’s jumped a further eight places and catapulted itself into the top 10. It really is quite an impressive performance in such a competitive field.”
