Seventh consecutive success for ZOE

The New Renault ZOE has triumphed in the 2020 What Car? Awards, winning the ‘Best Electric Car’ title overall and taking the honours in the ‘Best Electric Car for less than £30,000’ category. This success represents the seventh consecutive year that ZOE has been honoured at the annual What Car? ceremony.

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? explained:

The Renault ZOE won a price point last year but this overhauled model represents such an improvement that it’s the best small electric car you can buy. With it’s bigger battery, it covered 192 miles in our real range test- around a third more than it’s predecessor. What’s more it’s classier inside and more enjoyable to drive, thanks to brisk acceleration, composed handling and a settled ride on the motorway.

Dacia at the double with Duster and Sandero

Dacia is celebrating a double success at the 2020 What Car? Awards, with wins for both the Sandero and Duster. For the Sandero, it was an incredible eighth consecutive victory as it scooped the ‘Best Small Car under £12,000’ category, while the Duster was handed the ‘Best Family SUV under £18,000’ for the second year on the trot.

It should come as no great surprise that the Sandero is our favourite value car for less than £10,000, given that it has already continued seven What Car? Price point trophies to the mantlepiece at Dacia HQ. Yet again, nothing has emerged that can get close to the amount of car it offers for your money, Steve Huntingford said about the Sandero’s success. 

Speaking about the Duster’s second successive win, he explained:

Buyers who need a mid-size SUV rather than a small one to transport their family around and whose budget is tight, will love Dacia Duster. As you’d expect from the Romanian firm, you get huge amount of car for the money, with plenty of passenger space and a large boot. Choose the turbocharged 1.3-litre petrol engine that we favour and you’ll have a car that’s pleasantly brisk and reasonable economical. It also rides well, especially around town, thanks to its soft suspension.


Alpine A110 awarded second consecutive Sports Car of the Year title

The Alpine A110 has been presented with the Sportscar of the Year title for the second year in a row. Once again it impressed the What Car? team with its dynamic abilities and everyday usability.

Steve Huntingford commented:

Key to the appeal of the reborn Alpine A110 is its featherweight construction; it weighs a whopping quarter of a tonne less than some rivals. That in turn means that its suspension doesn’t have to be overly stiff, it’s tyres especially wide nor its engine massively powerful for it to perform as well as it does. With steering that chatters continuously about the road’s surface and even reasonable running costs on its side, the A110 is simply unmatched among sports cars.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R



5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
