Volvo XC40 SUV Wins Car of the Year at Geneva Show.

The new Volvo XC40 small SUV has been named 2018 European Car of the Year at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, the Swedish-based and Chinese owned company’s first win of this prize.

The European Car of the Year award is the judgement of a jury of 60 journalists from 23 countries across Europe.

The final contenders were the Seat Ibiza supermini, the BMW 5-Series sedan, the Kia Stinger hot-rod, the Citroen C3 Aircross, the Audi A8 limousine and Alfa Romeo’s Stelvio SUV, and the Volvo.

Last year the winner was the Peugeot 3008 SUV.

“Winning this award with our new XC40 is perfect timing,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO of Volvo Cars. “Volvo now has three globally available SUVs in its range for the first time. The XC40 will be a strong contributor to further growth, taking us into a new and fast-growing small SUV segment.”
