Volvo XC60 is Car of the Year for Global and Local Award-Giving Bodies

Volvo XC60

The new Volvo XC60 Midsize SUV has won a number of global and local accolades, including the prestigious World Car of the Year 2018 at the New York Auto Show earlier this year.

The XC60 also scooped the prestigious North American Utility Vehicle of the Year Award and the World Car of the Year win is the first in this competition for Volvo Cars.

Closer to home, the new Volvo XC60 has been named Jury Car of the Year by Middle East Car of the Year (MECOTY) jury panel and also received the Midsize Premium SUV Award at the annual MECOTY award ceremony, further adding to the growing list of award wins.

The XC60 also won Best Luxury Crossover at the Qatar Car Awards 2018 organised by two leading automotive magazines, Maqina and Arab Motors. This is the first time that the two magazines have partnered to organise an event of this kind in Qatar to recognise automotive achievements.

Faisal Sharif, Managing Director of DOMASCO, said that since its launch, the XC60 has picked up a number of awards both internationally and in the region, highlighting its universal appeal.

These awards also reaffirm that Volvo has the right combination of design, connectivity and safety that appeals to customers across the world.’

In the new XC60, Euro NCAP’s best overall performer in 2017, Volvo’s City Safety Autonomous Emergency Braking system has been enhanced with steering support for when automatic braking alone may not help avoid a potential collision. In addition, Oncoming Lane Mitigation with Steer Assist which helps mitigate head-on collisions and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Steer Assist functionality has been added to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.

Doha Marketing Services Company WLL (DOMASCO), is the exclusive distributor of Volvo Cars in Qatar and customers can test drive the new XC60 by visiting the Volvo showroom on Khalifa Street between the National Mosque and the TV Intersection.
