Volvo XC40 BBC TopGear

Volvo XC40 crowned SUV of the Year

We’re extremely pleased to say that Volvo’s first compact SUV has taken the top honour in the 2018 BBC TopGear Magazine Awards.

Jon Wakefield, Volvo Car UK Managing Director, said: "Our entry into the fiercely competitive compact premium SUV market has proved an exceptional success, with the XC40 earning widespread praise from critics and customers alike. It might be the smallest SUV in our line-up, but it encapsulates everything we're aiming to deliver as a brand in terms of striking, modern design, effective, intelligent use of new technologies, along with innovative engineering and unparalleled safety."

This is just another accolade to add to this model’s impressive track record since its release. Some of these other awards include the 2018 European Car of the Year and it also achieved the maximum five-star rating when it was subjected to the rigorous assessment by the independent vehicle safety organisation, Euro NCAP.

When the prestigious reviews the XC40 earlier in the year, they declared that “Volvo have made something very distinctive”, showing that they’ve not only made a model that comes complete with an impressive driving performance, but also offers you complete comfort and safer than ever before.

It can be said that the XC40 was primarily designed with urban life in mind, allowing you to tackle those busy city streets with ease, but at the same time it is capable of venturing out on the open roads in all weathers, especially if you opt for the all-wheel drive model.

Design has been a top priority for the Swedish manufacture as they’ve taken into consideration a number of factors to help this model stand out. Its raised ride height coupled with a subtly muscular frame and impressive wheel arches truly give this model a sense of assertiveness that will turn heads for all the right reason.
