The All-New Volvo XC90 has been named 2015 Car of the Year and Large SUV of the Year at this year's Auto Express New Car Awards.

"This award reflects the great passion that Volvo Cars puts into its new cars," said Oliver Peagam, Marketing Director at Volvo Car Australia. "We understand our customers' desire to have beautiful cars – cars that make their lives easier by delivering the latest technology - but in a user-friendly manner.

"We also understand the driving need for engines that deliver efficient performance, and a chassis that provides a balanced and engaging driving experience."

Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief of Auto Express, said: "We've been waiting a long time for the All-NewXC90, but it was well worth the wait – it's a sensational SUV. It not only sets new standards for Volvo, but for the car market in general, leading in terms of technology, efficiency, style and safety. It's also got an element of style – inside and out – that you might not have expected. If the XC90 points the way for the future of Volvo, the future looks very bright indeed."
