Double win for the Volvo V40 at the Scottish Car of the Year Awards 2012

Volvo's all-new V40 has been named 'Best Executive Hatchback' at the 2012 Scottish Car of the Year Awards, judged and hosted by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers, held at the Thistle Glasgow hotel.

The Volvo V40, launched earlier this year, has been an instant hit with
journalists and the buying public, selling fast across the UK. With its fresh Scandinavian design, innovative safety features and exciting driving dynamics, the V40 showcases Volvo's new Designed Around You philosophy, putting the driver at the centre of the ride experience through handling, style, comfort and advanced technology. The V40 is available from £19,995 on the road and with class-leading CO2 emissions of 94 g/km.

"Cutting a dash in the executive sector is no easy task, especially when you want a car that has bags of practicality too. This year proved sensible does go hand in hand with sensational, with the variety the SCOTY judging panel had to choose from. In the end, one car stood out for so many reasons, not least its looks, drive and safety," said John Murdoch, President of the ASMW.

Nikki Rooke, Volvo Car UK's Head of Public Affairs, Events and Sponsorship, said, "The all-new V40 has been a great success for Volvo this year and I'm delighted that the ASMW have been as equally pleased as we are with the car. The V40 is an important car, especially to our Scottish dealers, and I'm sure with its class-leading emissions, dynamics and design, we will continue to have success."
