The Volvo V90 has been handed the title of Best Estate in this year’s TopGear Magazine Best Cars in the World awards.
In its review of the car, the magazine praised the V90’s “genuinely brilliant” styling, efficient engines, blend of handling and refinement, interior ambience, and intuitive connectivity.
The TopGear award is the latest in a growing list of accolades for Volvo’s 90 series cars, which also include the new S90 premium saloon and XC90 SUV. The latter has picked up more than 10 awards in the UK alone since its launch in 2015, while the V90 was awarded the overall Scottish Car of the Year title earlier this month.
Commenting on the award, TopGear Magazine said: “Somehow, the Volvo V90 manages to be the antidote to 2016’s obsession with total connectivity and instant gratification while being totally connected and instantly gratifying.”
Launched earlier this year together with the S90, the V90 marks another step in the transformation of Volvo’s product range.
At the heart of Volvo’s flagship estate is a simple, luxurious cabin which uses natural materials to take interior design to a new level, and the V90 offers advanced technology.
A Volvo Car spokesman said: “With its compelling mix of innovation, style and functionality, the new V90 defines the premium estate segment. To receive this award from TopGear Magazine is a tribute to the car’s game-changing abilities in a competitive marketplace.”
