Volvo XC40 tops compact luxury SUV segment in August
The multi-award-winning XC40 was Australia’s most popular compact luxury SUV last month.

It was voted 2018 World Car of the Year and 2018 European Car of the Year. In Australia, the XC40 was awarded the 2019 Wheels Car of the Year and 2018 Carsales Car of the Year.
Globally, the Volvo XC40 is the company’s second most popular model – sitting behind the XC60 mid-sized SUV.
Volvo Car sales grew nearly eight per cent in August as the company’s market recovery during a pandemic-affected year continued its momentum.
