Honoured as the UK’s best seven-seater in the Auto Trader New Car Awards 2024

14 June 2024

Volvo XC90 Recharge Plus

The Volvo XC90 has triumphed in the Auto Trader New Car Awards 2024, winning the title of the UK’s best seven-seater.

Its success was secured thanks to the positive opinions and experiences of owners who were among more than 200,000 UK motorists who took part in Auto Trader’s latest annual survey, rating their cars across different criteria, from reliability and performance to appearance and running costs.

Announced at an awards ceremony in London yesterday, the honour commends the XC90 for its impressive balance of style and practicality. While it displays the cool, contemporary design cues that distinguish today’s Volvo models, it offers a generous combination of passenger and load space. The load compartment in the petrol version offers up to 356 litres of space when all seven seats are being used, or a maximum of 1,856 litres with all the seats folded down.

For families on the move, the XC90 provides many useful features for making journeys easier and more comfortable. Standard equipment across the range includes individual folding second-and third-row seats, four-zone climate control with an advanced air-quality system, air-conditioning for the third-row seats, hands-free tailgate operation, a rear parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, and a comprehensive suite of safety and driver-assistance systems.

Erin Baker, Auto Trader Editorial Director, said: “Volvo’s stylish, beautifully built XC90 offers everything you could ever need from a seven-seat car.”

She highlighted the positive opinions expressed by owners and their appreciation of the XC90’s family-friendly features, interior space, ability to take long journeys in its stride and generous equipment levels.

Nicole Melillo Shaw, Volvo Car UK Managing Director, said: “It is fantastic to win this Auto Trader award, not least because it is voted for by owners who live with the car day in, day out.

“In all the advances we have made in design, engineering, safety and new technologies, we have never forgotten the importance of day-to-day practicality – a hallmark of our brand over many years. Customers clearly value the fact that the XC90 is an authentic, premium-quality seven-seater without compromise.”

The XC90’s success comes just a week after the first of Volvo’s fully electric EX90 seven-seaters came off the assembly line in the USA.
