Volvo's new generation of premium SUVs have accomplished a double success at the Auto Express New Car Awards, announced last night. The new XC40 took the title of Small Premium SUV of the Year, while the XC60 with the innovative T8 Twin Engine petrol-electric hybrid powertrain was named Premium Hybrid Car of the Year.
The awards are the latest in a series of top honours earned by both models, including the World Car of the Year title for the XC60, and both European and UK Car of the Year for the XC40.
Volvo launches new V60 versatile family estate
These include multiple connectivity options for the family, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which mirror the user's phone screen on the car's nine-inch portrait touchscreen. In addition, a Wi-Fi hotspot means that the whole family can access content via their mobile devices. Meanwhile, Volvo's semi-autonomous Pilot Assist system eases the demands of long motorway journeys and heavy traffic with automated braking, acceleration and steering support.
Environmental efficiency is also prioritised, with scheduled new electrified powertrain options for the V60, including T6 Twin Engine and T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid models. Not forgetting the essential practicality required for a family estate car, the V60 has the largest boot in its class, offering up to 529 litres even when all the seats are occupied.
Keeping families safe is a Volvo hallmark, and the new V60 features the latest iteration of the firm's City Safety technology, which uses camera and radar scanning of the car's surroundings to mitigate against collisions with other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and even large animals. This innovation supports progress towards Volvo's vision that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car from 2020.
