The Volvo XC40 compact premium SUV has continued its exceptional run of awards success, being crowned SUV of the Year in the 2018 BBC TopGear Magazine Awards.
As part of the judging process, TopGear Magazine described the XC40 as a "considered, thoughtful, effective machine".
In its earlier review of the XC40, the magazine declared that "Volvo has made something distinctive", making the point that "the values of an SUV correspond with many of the values of Volvo". TopGear praised the XC40's "comfy drive", its "sense of all-weather security" and the "extremely well-organised and practical cabin".
Jon Wakefield, Volvo Car UK Managing Director, said: "Our entry into the fiercely competitive compact premium SUV market has proved an exceptional success, with the XC40 earning widespread praise from critics and customers alike. It might be the smallest SUV in our line-up, but it encapsulates everything we're aiming to deliver as a brand in terms of striking, modern design, effective, intelligent use of new technologies, along with innovative engineering and unparalleled safety."
The XC40's impressive honours list already includes the 2018 European Car of the Year title, and the model achieved the maximum five-star rating when it was subjected to the more rigorous 2018 assessment by the independent vehicle safety organisation Euro NCAP.
