Kia and Mini both made the shortlist, but were consigned to runner-up status by the eventual winner, Volvo.
Volvo weren’t short of new products last year, with cars like the S90, V90 and XC60 all joining the market. As well as making them lovely to look at, wonderful to sit in and nice to drive, Volvo has also managed to fill them with some really cutting-edge equipment. This award shows that not only are all the essential things provided, but these features are also effective and easy to use.
Like most of our awards, this category was decided by feedback collated from a survey of around 10,000 car owners, all of whom rated their car in 16 key areas. That means an Auto Trader New Car Award is a real stamp of approval from people that live with the car day-in, day-out, and it makes each winner a true consumer champion.
Here are just a few of the comments owners made about the features in their Volvo…
- “It's beautiful, comfortable and has enough equipment to satisfy even the best tech head!”
- “Superb quality and safety features.”
- “The quality of the car is very good, it drives very smoothly and it has a lot of standard features and equipment. Overall good value.”
