The Volvo XC90 has been named the 2016 WesBank/SAGMJ Car of the Year.
The latest local motoring accolade joins the new XC90’s long list of international awards, the total of which now exceeds 60. Other significant awards include the Women’s World Car of the Year, North American Truck of the Year, European Car of the Year, Best SUV (Scottish Car of the Year) and Icelandic Car of the Year awards.
“We are absolutely delighted with our victory,” comments Volvo Car South Africa Managing Director, Greg Maruszewski. “With the all-new XC90 we are not only re-writing the rules of a post-modern luxury driving experience but reinventing our brand as well. Our ethos, ‘Made by Sweden’, expresses our intrinsic Scandinavian roots, love for people, heritage and attitude to building some of the world’s most desirable – and safest – luxury vehicles.
