Latest News: The Quadrifoglio badge once again lives up to its name, amassing two more accolades for the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2019. Judged by the expert team at What Car?, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio took home ‘Performance Car of the Year’, following its ‘Sports Car’ category win in 2018, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio fought off stiff competition to take the crown for ‘Best Sports SUV for more than £60,000’. The Giulia Quadrifoglio came in for praise from Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car?, saying “It’s often said that getting to the top is easier than staying there. So by that reckoning, the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s second Car of the Year category win is arguably a greater success than its first. But it should be no surprise – after all, we’re talking about a comfortable, spacious, well-equipped saloon that’s more fun to drive than rivals costing tens of thousands more”. Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor said of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio: “The hottest version of the Stelvio SUV is outrageously fast, but still feels light and responsive thanks to steering that's super-quick without making the car feel nervous. Add in great body control and four-wheel drive traction and the Quadrifoglio continually encourages you to make the most of its performance”. Both the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio are powered by a 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, which allows them to reach a top speed of 191mph and 176mph respectively, while reaching 62mph from zero in just 3.9 seconds in the Giulia and 3.8 seconds in the Stelvio. Arnaud Leclerc, Managing Director, FCA UK, commented: “Alfa Romeo cars have always appealed to the heart with their Italian passion, flair and dynamics, but these awards show that the latest models also appeal to the head. To see the pinnacles of the new Alfa Romeo range lauded by the experts at What Car? makes these wins even more rewarding.” To coincide with these wins, Alfa Romeo UK have secured further right-hand-drive allocation of the limited edition Giulia Quadrifoglio NRING and Stelvio Quadrifoglio NRING models, priced from £82,500 OTR and £89,500 OTR respectively. Just 108 editions of each model are available for the whole EMEA region, celebrating the records achieved by Alfa Romeo at the legendary Nurburgring. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is available now priced from £63,500 OTR, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio starts from £69,990 OTR.  To find out more about the award-winning Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio ranges, speak to our Sales Teams at Bedford, Northampton and Kings Lynn

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

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
