To all our ESA car fanatics you will be glad to know that the all-new Volvo XC90 has been named the 2016 WesBank/SAGMJ Car of the Year (COTY).
As the second Volvo to walk away with the prestigious motoring accolade in the competition's 31-year history, the accolade comes at a time when the Volvo brand is undergoing a complete rejuvenation which started with the all-new XC90.
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.
The Volvo Managing Director Greg Maruszewski was quoted saying "We are absolutely delighted with our victory, "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."
