Are you looking for the best large SUV around? Volvo has your award-winning answer

The Volvo XC90 has added another award to its long list of accolades, becoming the 2016 Auto Express Large SUV of the Year. In what has rapidly grown to become one of the most competitive markets in the automotive industry, Volvo has topped the table yet again with its SUV for all seasons.

Taking the Auto Express Car of the Year title in 2015, the seven-seater XC90 continues to impress, offering an incredible offering with outstanding luxury, state-of-the-art technology and surprisingly affordable prices – not forgetting the Swedish brand’s unrivalled safety systems. City Safety auto-braking technology, Queue Assist and self-parking come as part and parcel of your XC90, as well as some of the most impressive seats available.

Slick Scandinavian styling and premium touches throughout make the XC90 stand above its competitors, and set the tone for the marque’s future line-up. Clever design features, such as the configurable full-sized seven seats and a permanent ‘on-demand’ four-wheel drive system, get this versatile Volvo noticed.

Get the comfort and smooth ride of a saloon with the space and capability of an SUV, all in a finely chiselled package with crisp lines, commanding proportions and neat detailing. Pick from entry-level Momentum up to flagship Inscription trim to get the level of refinement you desire. The XC90 offers supreme practicality too, as its extra two seats fold down to create a 1,102 litre boot space.

The XC90 is available as an advanced 401bhp petrol hybrid, which emits a remarkable 49g/km CO2. A 316bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine and a 231bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine are also available, with the latter promising economy of 49.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 149g/km.
