Adding to the already historic run of accolades acquired by Volvo recently, the XC40 added another momentous achievement to the list by winning the European Car of the Year award at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This is the first time the Swedish manufacturer has won this prestigious award.
The XC40 also marks Volvo’s first entry into the small premium SUV market, meaning they’re now offering three globally-available SUVs that are set to take the industry by storm, thanks to their highly-commended safety features and exciting technologies housed within the luxury cabin.
Håkan Samuelsson, CEO of Volvo Cars, collected the award and stated: “We have a clear strategy for growth and we are committed to leading in automotive safety, connectivity services and electrification. The XC40 reflects that commitment and, looking at the response from our customers and from the COTY jury here today, we are on the right track.”
Boasting strikingly good looks and an array of noteworthy design flourishes, this model perfectly highlights the craftsmanship synonymous with the manufacturer.
