Paddy Magee, Country Operations Director, Renault Group Ireland:

“A fantastic April result for the network with Sandero and Trafic the top selling car and van in Ireland. Dacia really is a game changer in the Irish motor market for the savvy customer looking for affordability and a smart buy. Now a mainstream brand here Dacia has achieved so much in just 10 years in Ireland. Renault vans continue to perform and really great to see Trafic taking the number one position in April, and Master retaining its number one spot year to date”.
