Parents vote Renault Scenic the best family car

The new Renault Scenic beat off the competition to win the ‘family car of the year’ at the Maternity and Infant Awards last week.

For the seventh year running, the Maternity and Infant Awards celebrate excellence in all things family-orientated.

These awards are the only one in Ireland voted, and tested for, by parents for parents. Consumers know that the awards are given purely on merit, and undergo the most rigorous judging of all — by parents themselves.

Judges and Maternity and Infant AcademytTesters said: “that the Scenic is a beautiful, family-focused car. The five-year warranty, spacious backseat and low, spacious boot make it the perfect family car.”
