Latest News: Jeep features prominently in this year’s 4x4 Magazine ‘4x4 of the Year 2018 awards’, taking three of the honours’ top prizes. Among the magazine’s Special Awards, Jeep was crowned 4x4 Manufacturer of the Year and Jeep Wrangler scooped the Off-Road Award. Meanwhile Jeep Renegade was named Best Small SUV in the honours’ Class Awards. With the new Jeep Compass due on sale here in February and new Wrangler due later in 2018, it is going to be another important year for Jeep. 4x4 Magazine’s panel of experts recognised the company’s achievements in their awards. “The Wrangler will continue to be the dedicated off-road machine a brand like Jeep needs if it is to remain credible – which it clearly is,” said Alan Kidd, editor, 4x4 Magazine. “The arrival of the new Compass strengthens the company’s position still further. Jeep is absolutely getting it right.” On Wrangler’s Off-Road Award, the panel of experts said: “When a vehicle is still capable of winning awards when its replacement is already being built, that’s an indication of how far ahead it is. This Wrangler is more than 10 years old, yet demand is greater than ever and used ones are going up, not down, in value. More than ever, it’s the definitive off-roader.” And commenting on Renegade’s Small SUV win, they said: “Last year’s overall champion is still a winning proposition in its own highly competitive corner of the market. There are more refined options, but the Renegade has plenty of image, plenty of kit – and a set of off-road skills to leave the rest of the class standing still.” “’There’s Only One’ is what we say about Jeep, and millions of people all over the world will testify to that,” says Andrew Tracey, Country Brand Manager, Jeep UK. “So it’s especially good to see a panel of 4x4 experts agreeing that point too and not only recognising two of our models in their awards, but making us their top manufacturer. “With new Compass and Wrangler to come, and constant improvements being made to our entire range of cars, we are looking forward to 2018 and beyond.” The Jeep Wrangler range starts at £36,740 OTR for the 2.8 CRD Sahara. The Jeep Renegade range starts at £18,250 OTR for the 1.6E-TorQ 110hp Sport.

New SCENIC, the 20th Renault vehicle to receive a five-star Euro-NCAP safety rating

New Renault SCENIC has received a five-star rating on safety tests administered by the independent organisation Euro NCAP.

As the 20th Renault vehicle to receive a five-star Euro NCAP rating, SCENIC demonstrates over 15 years of brand commitment to safety concerns.

Renault SCENIC sets itself apart from the crowd through a number of state-of-the-art technologies, including active emergency braking with pedestrian detection as standard, a first for vehicles in its segment.

This result highlights Renault's commitment to safety, particularly with the all new SCENIC, which will hit the markets in September 2016. It offers cutting edge technologies and passed the new protocol of 2016 Euro NCAP tests with flying colours. New SCENIC stands out with a 90% score for adult occupant protection, 82% for children and 67% for pedestrians.

Top-level passive safety

In terms of passive safety — structures and equipment that protect occupants from unavoidable impact — New SCENIC is top-level.

New SCENIC takes advantage of a structure consisting of reinforced steel skirts, side members, windscreen pillars and posts. This allows it to protect the lives of occupants inside the safety cell. Among these steels, some are "ultra-high elastic", with each square mm able to resist up to 120kg of pressure. In addition, crumple zone steel located outside the passenger compartment allows for impact to be absorbed, thus protecting the lives of occupants inside the safety cell.

New SCENIC is equipped with two curtain airbags for the first and second rows and two thorax airbags in the front. It also has two new-generation chest-level airbags that make use of adaptive technology. Based on sensor information, airbag inflation level is adapted to meet the jig of both driver and passenger.

 With New SCENIC's embedded technologies, driving is safe and serene

New SCENIC makes use of premium segment features and several types of innovative equipment. It is the only vehicle in the C-MPV segment to offer an emergency braking system with pedestrian detection as standard. To put drivers at ease and warn them in the event of risk, New SCENIC offers:

  • A colour heads-up display  
  • Hands-free parking 
  • Lane departure warning 
  • Lane keeping assist (LKA)  
  • Adaptive cruise control 
  • Fatigue detection warning with trajectory analysis  
  • Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS) with pedestrian detection
