The New Volvo XC60 Is Awarded As The ‘Car Of The Year 2018’
New Volvo SUVs continue collecting awards. At the Auto Show in New York, the mid-size XC60 of the second generation is awarded as the Car of the Year.
This is the second prestigious reward of the model this year. The Volvo XC60 already has the North American Crossover of the Year 2018 title. Earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show the compact XC40 SUV was awarded as the Car of the Year in Europe.
In addition, the new Volvo XC60 also became the safest car in 2017 according to Euro NCAP. In particular, City Safety technology activates the steer during automatic braking.
Oncoming Lane Mitigation helps to avoid a head-on collision, and BLIS reduces the risk of accidents occurring when changing lanes.
Håkan Samuelsson, a President of Volvo Cars, commenting on such high results has noted that investments in the brand bear good results.
We exist in a fairly tough competitive environment, but this XC60 award shows that Volvo has the right combination of design, connectivity and safety, satisfies the requirements of customers all over the world.
The XC60 is offered with a range of diesel and petrol engines, as well as a titled hybrid T8 Twin Engine powertrain of 407 hp.
By the way, Håkan Samuelsson has been admitted the ‘Person of the Year’ by the jury of the same World Car of the Year 2018 contest.
