The V60 also received a warm response, with Alisdair Suttie commenting: “Volvo is the past master of the art of the estate car, and the V60 encapsulates that perfectly. It’s spacious and practical, comfortable, superb to drive and strong on value.” In Matt Robinson’s opinion, the model “might well be the best-looking estate car ever to make production.”
Since their launch, the new models have excelled, with customers sharing high opinions of the premium XC40 and V60, helping drive Volvo’s UK new car sales to their best performance in 28 years in 2018.
John Wakefield, Volvo Car UK Managing Director, said: “These awards reaffirm the all-round strengths and appeal of our new model line-up. We aim to provide customers with the best possible choice, no matter what their needs, and will continue to develop these model ranges with new powertrains and the latest advances in high-tech equipment.”
