The stylish SUV was awarded with the Autocar Game-Changer title. The model was the first proof of the brand’s global change thanks to its Scalable Product Architecture platform that was built on. It combines the latest safety package, comfort and practicality credentials, also moves the game on in terms of connectivity and its range of powerful yet efficient Drive-E powertrains.
Jim Holder, Autocar’s editorial director said: “The XC90 has transformed the standing of Volvo in the most striking fashion, combining practicality, comfort and cutting-edge technology in a hugely desirable package.”
The advanced technology includes the nine-inch Sensus touch screen control system. The screen includes pinch, zoom and swipe functionality, provides access to the internet and a range of cloud-based apps and internet radio stations too. Safety package includes two world-first safety aids: automatic emergency braking at a junction, which will apply the brakes for you if you accidentally turn into the path of an oncoming vehicle, and run-off road protection, which includes a collapsible section in the front seats to reduce the likelihood of spinal injuries if the car leaves the road.
Managing Director, Nick Connor said: “We’re delighted that the XC90 has been recognised as such a transformative model by Autocar. We’re immensely proud of the car and what it heralds for Volvo – both in terms of our new-found style and desirability, but also that it is the first in an entirely new product range due in the next few years. Volvo is on a roll at the moment, and this honour for the XC90 is yet more proof that our transformation is well on track.”
