I have a 2015 Zoe, one of the most annoying thing I find with the car is the reflection of the dashboard onto the very raked windscreen. Have Renault sorted this out on their 2020 cars. ie do they have a none reflective dash top.

It’s a little better, but not perfect. For your current car, you can buy a dash top cover which reduces reflections significantly. Sorted one for my Mum’s Zoe and it’s made it so much easier for her to drive in brighter sunlight. You can order them on ebay, but we found it cheaper to buy direct from the makers in Australia. Took a couple of weeks to arrive. Says it’s for June 18 on, but I’m not aware of any differences in the dash between 2013 & 2019 apart from the colour change.

They had one thing to do during the remodel and still they neglected the glare? 🤦‍♂️ Really the dash top fix should have been a priority over everything else, or if nothing else a proper polarised tint on the glass to reduce it to a minimum. I liked my Zoe but early morning and evening through town driving was a pain to be sure.

I don't find the glare bad at all and I drive the Zoe in a fairly sunny part of the world.

Not sure why people who don't own a ZE50 are commenting...probably just trolling. ;)

Perspective versus your denial.

Please come back when you actually have experience of driving the Zoe 50 in a sunny climate.

Remember you live in Scotland, so I don’t think that will ever qualify. ;)

ZE50 is better, it has soft touch matt finish on the dash, but the demist vents are still visible in the screen reflections. Its clearly an issue with lots of cars, as the makers of the Zoe dash cover also make them for most other vehicles available in Australia.

Good to see some truth being spoken. Your experience mirrors what many have said over the years.

Sounds like Renault missed an trick when they restyled the 2020 Zoe, that dashboard glare should have been right at the top of the list of improvementso_O

Nice but unnecessary, as with all cars there is usually some sort of reflection its fortunately mostly restricted to the side air vents in the side windows rather than anything on the windscreen.

The did fix the terrible headlights, but on a scale of things the dash was a bigger issue because even with HID upgrades you still couldn't see shit when a streetlight lit up your dash and caused a big opaque reflection in your windscreen.
