    VOLVO’S XC90 HAS been named the UK’s best used luxury SUV. The award, given in the Diesel Car and Eco Car Used Car magazine’s Top 50, highlighted the XC90’s contemporary design, efficient powertrains, luxury specification, and advanced connectivity and safety technology.

    “This fantastic luxury SUV is a triumph of subtle design,” Ian Robertson, editor of the magazine, said. “The interior is a lovely place to spend time thanks to Volvo’s trademark seats and a tablet-style touchscreen that removes any clutter from the dashboard. If you’re lucky enough to find one with the optional Bowers & Wilkins audio system, give it a listen because it turns the XC90 into a concert hall on wheels.” (Related: New Volvo V60 Cross Country on-sale)

    The top-50 list was determined by the magazine’s team of second-hand car experts, who took a wide range of issues into account, including purchase price, residual value, general ability and fitness for purpose.

    More than 750 vehicles were considered, from which the XC90 made the final top 50, in 32nd place. Volvo was further represented by the V40 premium compact family car in 35th place. (Related: Roadtest — Volvo V60 D4 Momentum)


    The best way to access a pre-owned Volvo is through Volvo Selekt, Volvo’s approved-used car programme. The service offers the best cars available on the market and complete customer peace of mind. Each vehicle undergoes more than 100 checks by Volvo’s technicians and is given the latest factory software upgrades.

    Sales are backed with a minimum 12-month/unlimited-mileage Volvo Selekt warranty and cover for the car’s first or next MoT test, plus a minimum of 12 months’ roadside assistance cover. And should the car not meet the customer’s expectations, they have 30 days or 1500 miles to return and exchange their vehicle. (Related: New Volvo dealership for John Clark Motor Group)

    “It is great to see the XC90 being recognised as such a strong all-round proposition for people looking for a stylish, practical and reliable pre-owned SUV with luxury guaranteed,” Bruce Greenwood, Volvo Car UK’s Used Car Programme Manager, said.

    “With the benefit of our Volvo Selekt programme, we can help customers seeking the best-quality used XC90s – or any other Volvo model – find their perfect car with confidence.”
