The New Citroen Relay van has scooped two accolades in the inaugural Association of Professional Motoring Press (APMP), Van of the Year Awards 2015 in Ireland.
Winning alongside sister vehicles, Peugeot Boxer and Fiat Ducato, Citroen's recently launched New Relay range was voted APMP Panel Van of the Year 2015 and took the top award in the LCV sector by winning the overall APMP Van of the Year 2015 prize.
The APMP has amongst its ranks several experienced commercial vehicle journalists, including the current International Van of the Year Chairperson, Jarlath Sweeney, who noted that the New Relay was a "major evolution" for the model.
Gerry Murphy commented that the "functional improvements are impressive" and Paul White described the New Relay as "very easy to drive", with a "strong list of options and safety equipment". Cathal Doyle commented that it was "the most refined offering yet."
Speaking about the awards, Frédéric Soulier, Managing Director of Citroen Motors Ireland, said; "Citroen is delighted to win two of the debut APMP awards including the top LCV accolade. This APMP Van of the Year Award 2015 is a vote in confidence for the New Relay and will no doubt boost our performance in the Irish market."
