The New Volvo XC60 voted Best Premium SUV

The Volvo XC60 has been voted 'Best Premium SUV' at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2017.

The new XC60 won praise for its interior quality, design, technology, spaciousness and comfort-oriented approach. Auto Express's expert testers also said the XC60 has "a level of safety, connectivity and autonomous technology that leads the sector" and that it "will be a very easy car to live with day-to-day".

Commenting on the award, Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief of Auto Express, said: "Volvo has done it again with the XC60. The XC90 has been a serial winner at our Awards and now the XC60 wins at the first attempt. It's another super-stylish SUV from Volvo that offers a level of quality, comfort and technology that rivals can't – it really is the complete package."

This second-generation model has all of the advanced connectivity and safety equipment introduced in Volvo's award-winning range of large premium cars. It also brings Volvo's latest elegant Scandinavian design to the mid-size SUV class, along with the brand's ground-breaking Sensus touchscreen control system.

The XC60 is available with a range of powerful yet efficient engines, including the innovative T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid. This combines a petrol engine with an electric motor, making it a near-silent zero-emission city car one minute and a high-performance family SUV the next. With CO2 emissions of just 49 g/km, the T8 is also exceptionally tax-efficient.

The XC60 wasn't the only successful Volvo at the Auto Express Awards. The XC90 – a two-time winner of the 'Best Large SUV' award – was also highly commended in the 'Best Large Premium SUV' category this year, showcasing Volvo's expertise when it comes to SUVs.

Volvo and Blood Bikes Cumbria

WIN a Volvo V40 in conjunction with Blood Bikes Cumbria

We are delighted to have been working closely with Blood Bikes Cumbria ( throughout 2016 to raffle a brand-new Volvo V40 car in order to raise funds for their vital services across the county.
Blood bikes Cumbria is part of a nationwide organisation, The Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes. Each group within the organisation runs independently but follows their guide lines. Blood Bikes provide out-of-hours transport 365 days a year to transport urgently needed blood, drugs, human tissue and other medical requirements between hospitals and blood transfusion banks. They also supply the Great North Air Ambulance with fresh blood for their blood on board service every day of the week regardless of weather conditions.

They started their first contract with North Cumbria Hospital on 1st July 2014 and have gone on to service the hospitals all across the North of Cumbria, all of which have been very impressed with the professional standards provided by the Blood Bikes team.
The team is made up of very hard working volunteers that give up their time to help. That coupled with a dedicated fleet of liveried vehicles who carry out the emergency transfers means that Blood Bikes Cumbria saves hundreds of lives every year. It has also meant that the hospitals will save thousands of pounds over the year; this will enable them to fund other necessary services within the hospitals.

We think you’ll agree that it’s such a great and worthy cause and it has been a pleasure to sell tickets on their behalf in our Lloyd Motor Group Showrooms across Cumbria. Tickets are still available in our showrooms or from any Blood Bike member for only £2.50 per ticket. The draw for the brand-new Volvo V40 will take place on 3rd January in the Lloyd Volvo showroom, Chandler Way, Carlisle. See you there!
