Customers of the Dacia Jogger can rest assured that they’re buying wisely after the innovative seven-seater scooped the ‘Smart Spender’ title at the Carwow Car of the Year Awards.

  • The Jogger once again proved itself to be a smart buy after impressing the Carwow editorial team with the way it complements value with space and distinctive style. In addition, the Jogger was also ‘Highly Commended’ in the ‘Family Values’ category, underlining its suitability for households that want an affordable car that is also robust, versatile and perfect for fun-filled journeys.

    It wasn’t the only Dacia that Carwow singled out for a ‘Highly Commended’ award either, the popular car buying website and YouTube channel bestowing the accolade on the rugged Sandero Stepway in the ‘Adventurer’s Choice’ category.

    On the online car marketplace’s decision to award the Jogger, Mat Watson, Chief Content Officer at Carwow, said: “Dacia is always near the top of the list for anyone buying on a budget, but that doesn’t mean they’re not great cars. The Jogger is as cost-effective as it gets in terms of a new car that can carry seven people, but it’s also comfortable and massively practical. Plus, it looks good in an old-school estate car sort of way, so it stands out from the crowd of samey SUVs.”

    Luke Broad, Dacia Brand Director for the UK, said: “The ‘Smart Spender’ award is a great addition to our trophy cabinet. It recognises exactly how Dacia complements unrivalled affordability with versatility, wrapping it all up in a very distinctive and attractive package. Coupled with its ‘Highly Commended’ award in the ‘Family Values’ category, and it’s clear that the Jogger is a great buy for families, regardless of their budget.”

    The Carwow ‘Car of The Year’ awards shine a spotlight on the very best cars available. To determine its winners, the Carwow team reviewed hundreds of cars across 12 categories, evaluating them on the things that really matter to car buyers, such as price, performance, efficiency, comfort and practicality. The judges also picked out the cars that lead the field and offer something different, innovative and valuable to car buyers.
