On its decision to award the All-New Captur, the Auto Express judges said: “Taking much of the magic that’s made the Clio such a successful supermini, Renault has upscaled its recipe for its second-generation Captur small SUV – and to similar success. It boasts the same great level of refinement we’ve come to expect from Renault’s latest products, along with great tech, a practical interior and low running costs. The way the Captur combines all these elements in one mature-feeling package is why it’s our favourite small SUV.”
The Alpine A110, which is available in Pure, Legende and the range-topping A110S level of trim that boasts 292hp and a more focussed suspension set-up, successfully defended its ‘Coupe of the Year’ title thanks to its unrivalled mix of exhilarating driving dynamics and distinctive style. On the A110, Steve Fowler added: “Delicacy and feel define this car. When its rivals are all getting larger, heavier and more powerful to compensate, Alpine’s resurrection with this unique approach, and the stunning styling that means it gives a referential nod to cars from the 60s but still looks superbly modern, means the A110 is as good as modern coupes come."
