Volvo XC60 Named 2018 North American Utility of the Year Finalist


The new 2018 XC60 replaces Volvo’s highly successful original XC60, which in the nine years since its launch became the bestselling premium mid-sized SUV in Europe with nearly a million units sold globally. The XC60 today represents around 30 percent of Volvo’s total global sales.
This is the third consecutive year a Volvo has been named a finalist in the North American Car of the Year competition. The XC90 full size SUV was named 2016 North American Truck of the Year.

Votes from nearly 60 jurors were tallied confidentially by Deloitte LLP and remained sealed until they were announced today by the organization's officers, including Vice President Matt DeLorenzo and Secretary-Treasurer Lauren Fix.

Chosen from dozens of new vehicles, jurors' evaluated the finalists based on segment leadership, innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar. The process started in June 2017 by determining vehicle eligibility, and includes three rounds of voting.

Winners of the NACTOY award will be announced at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit on January 15, 2018.
