New XC60 voted best

The Volvo XC60 has been voted ‘Best Premium SUV’ at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2017.

Auto Express’s expert testers said the XC60 has ‘a level of safety, connectivity and autonomous technology that leads the sector’ and that it ‘will be a very easy car to live with day-to-day’.

This second-generation model has all of the advanced connectivity and safety equipment introduced in Volvo’s award-winning range of large premium cars. It also brings Volvo’s latest elegant Scandinavian design to the mid-size SUV class, along with the brand’s ground-breaking Sensus touchscreen control system.

Jon Wakefield, managing director of Volvo Car UK, said, ‘Winning the Auto Express ‘Best Premium SUV’ award is a fantastic testament to the quality and desirability of the new XC60. The XC60 brings all the style, sophistication and cutting-edge connectivity and safety features from our largest cars to our best-selling model, introducing the fruits of Volvo’s transformation to even more owners.’

The XC60 wasn’t the only successful Volvo at the Auto Express Awards. The XC90 – a two-time winner of the ‘Best Large SUV’ award – was also highly commended in the ‘Best Large Premium SUV’ category this year.
