MAHWAH, NJ (Feb. 6, 2024) – Five Volvo SUVs and wagons have been named Car and Driver Editors’ Choice Award winners for 2024.
The XC40, XC60, and XC90 luxury SUVs as well as the V60 Cross Country and V90 Cross Country luxury wagons received the accolades, each praised for their interior and exterior features, with the award-winning XC40 especially noted for its “refined Swedish design, safety, and practicality.”
This is not the first time Volvo cars have made the prestigious honor roll, which represents a broader and more encompassing seal of approval of highly accomplished vehicles given by Car and Driver editors.
Many have won other awards as well: The XC60 was 2018 North American Utility of the Year and a 2018 World Car of the Year winner while the XC90 was 2016 North American Utility of the Year and 2016 Motor Trend SUV of the Year.
The criteria used to determine the vehicles selected for the Editors’ Choice list include the results of Car and Driver’s industry-leading rigorous instrumented testing; editors’ subjective evaluations of each vehicle’s performance; how well they each fulfill their intended mission, how strong a value proposition they represent, how enjoyable they are to drive; and the ranking each vehicle earns within its market segment versus its competitors. That rank can be found on each vehicle’s 2024 make-model page on CarandDriver.com under the heading “Where This Vehicle Ranks.” Only vehicles from the 2024 model year, and those that the staff has hands-on driving experience with, are eligible for Editors’ Choice.
