Honest John Awards 2019: Volvo XC40 crowned Car of the Year

Published 02 May 2019

Car of the Year - Volvo XC40

Nothing else has proved as popular on HonestJohn.co.uk over the last 12 months as the Volvo XC40. The premium crossover has taken the ultimate prize at the 2019 Honest John Awards, with readers loving its head-turning style, classy interior and class-leading safety kit.

HonestJohn.co.uk Editor David Ross said: “We were mightily impressed with the XC40 when it was first launched, but even we couldn’t predict just how popular it would be, ultimately being crowned the Honest John Car of the Year for 2019. Well built, stylish and refreshingly different from the usual crossovers, the XC40 is a car we have found ourselves repeatedly recommending to readers over the past 12 months.”

Don't judge a book by its cover but it's not too pretty!

If Volvo can get the pricing of the plug in hybrid right, it’ll be a winner for me.

I just hope that the rumours about Volvo reliability (lack of) prove to be groundless as I wouldn’t mind one of these, but I’ll wait and see.
