The Volvo XC40 has achieved a double success, winning both the Car of the Year and Best Medium SUV titles in the DieselCar and EcoCar Top 50 awards 2018. These latest honours continue an exceptional run of distinguished awards for the XC40 within its first few months on sale.


“Volvo’s rejuvenation has been a joy to behold, and not only is the XC40 its most important new model yet, it’s also the best of the lot. In fact, it’s our favourite car of 2018, full stop.”

Ian Robertson - Editor of DieselCar and EcoCar magazine

As Volvo’ first ever compact SUV, every XC40 is exceptionally well equipped. Even the entry-level Momentum version has a nine-inch touch screen control system, satellite navigation, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control with a sophisticated interior air-quality system, and 18-inch alloy wheels – all as standard.

The XC40 comes with lots of exciting technology, including the Volvo On Call app, which allows you to control various car functions from your smartphone or smartwatch, while the Sensus nine-inch touch screen works in tandem with the sophisticated voice-activated control system.


“These latest awards add yet more momentum to the XC40’s impressive market debut, giving further independent approval of what is our first offering in an important and growing area of the premium car market. It is also significant that the XC40 has gained this Car of the Year title in its initial diesel- and petrol-powered form, acknowledging how our advanced engine technologies – including diesel – continue to be clean and efficient propositions for customers.”

Jon Wakefield, Managing Director of Volvo Car UK
