Best Luxury Crossover for 2016 by Good Housekeeping


Detroit, MI (Jan. 13, 2016) - Volvo's all-new XC90 has been named the Best New Luxury Crossover for 2016 by Good Housekeeping as part of the magazine's inaugural Best New Car Awards, in partnership with Car and Driver.

The all-new XC90 marks the beginning of a new chapter for Volvo and sets a new standard for the luxury SUV segment. With exceptional comfort and ample trunk space, the XC90 easily seats seven and even includes an integrated child booster seat. 

Developed from the ground up on Volvo's unique Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), it features a 316 horsepower, supercharged and turbocharged Drive-E engine featuring an EPA rating of 25 mpg highway, a tablet-like Sensus control system, and understated Scandinavian design.

With its full suite of IntelliSafe features and two more world firsts for safety, the all-new Volvo XC90 is also the safest Volvo ever.

 "We at Volvo Cars are thrilled that the XC90 has received this distinct honor from the teams at Good Housekeeping and Car and Driver," said Lex Kerssemakers, president and CEO of Volvo Car USA. "It is further evidence that that XC90 is an outstanding choice in the highly competitive mid-size luxury SUV segment."

Kerssemakers accepted the award in Detroit at the 2016 North American International Auto Show.

Good Housekeeping worked with Car and Driver to screen a preliminary list of the top 160 vehicles down to 41 across four categories: Compact, Sedan, Eco and Crossover. Then, the engineers from the Good Housekeeping Institute logged 2,000+ miles on real roads, assessing everything from performance, safety features, and family friendliness, to price, infotainment systems, usability, storage and intuitive design.

"Women control a large percentage of the car purchasing decision in their homes, yet no one can speak to them in a manner like Good Housekeeping can-backed by the trust, relatability, and expertise of the Good Housekeeping Institute," said Jane Francisco, Editor in Chief, Good Housekeeping. "Combined with Car and Driver's expertise in the auto sphere, our Best New Car Award provides our readers with information to find the perfect car to fit their needs."

The XC90 will be featured in the February issue of Good Housekeeping, on newsstands January 19.
