XC40 lands an­other ma­jor award

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - CLASSIFIED­S -

THE Volvo XC40 has claimed yet an­other sig­nif­i­cant hon­our, adding the New Car of the Year ti­tle in the Mo­tor Trader 2019 Awards to its im­pres­sive col­lec­tion. Its suc­cess con­firms its sta­tus as a game-chang­ing model in the fiercely com­pet­i­tive premium com­pact SUV mar­ket.

Mo­tor Trader's judg­ing panel was full of praise. say­ing: 'The XC40 is a star turn. It shines on all the cru­cial fronts: con­ve­nient size, en­gag­ing driv­ing dy­nam­ics, im­pec­ca­ble safety cre­den­tials and ex­cel­lent build qual­ity. These com­bine to make it an out­stand­ing car.'

The X040 was ad­mired for its re­strained styling in con­trast to more 'pumped-up' SUVs. pro­ject­ing a look that is 'more man­nerly and less con­fronta­tional'. The judges were also impressed by the car's ride, han­dling, per­for­mance and re­fine­ment, which help make it an ac­com­plished companion over long dis­tances. Fur­ther ap­pre­ci­a­tion was given to the 'cool Scan­di­na­vian in­te­rior' and the im­pres­sive ar­ray of safety fea­tures fit­ted to ev­ery ver­sion in the range.
