The Volvo XC60 was chosen from an initial entry list of 34 vehicles from all over the world, then a short list of ten, reduced to three finalists announced in Geneva earlier this month:  the Mazda CX‐5, the Range Rover Velar and the Volvo XC60.

"I am pleased to see our company's product investments paying off," said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. "We are up against some tough competition, but this award for the XC60 shows that Volvo has the right combination of design, connectivity and safety that appeals to customers across the world."
