All-New Volvo XC60 Wins 2018 North American Utility of the Year Award
The all-new Volvo XC60 premium mid-size SUV is the 2018 North American Utility of the Year and Volvo Cars’ second winner of the coveted award, following the XC90 win in 2016.
“The US market is vital to our ongoing growth,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. “We are proud to receive this prestigious award and we are committed to building on the success of our XC60 and XC90 in the US, as demonstrated by the billion-dollar investments in our new manufacturing plant in South Carolina.”
Success at the 2018 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) awards continues a winning run for the XC60, which was earlier this month crowned the 2017 Euro NCAP awards’ best overall safety performer of 2017, outscoring a comprehensive field of 70 cars representing 30 carmakers across all classes.
