Posted by at 4:21 pm on March 7, 2018

The Geneva Motor Show is the first and arguably the biggest of the European car shows. A look at the manufacturers showing off their latest wheels reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the automotive world, with Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover,Lexus, Mercedes, Porsche, Volvo, VW all taking to Switzerland this week.

The star of show so far has been, officially at least, the Volvo XC40 SUV, which won the prestigious Car of the Year award in Geneva, as selected by a panel of 60 auto journalists from across over 20 European countries.

The compact SUV is the successor to the Volvo XC90 and XC60, and is intended to rival the likes of the Audi Q3 and Range Rover Evoque. It’s a pretty enough looking specimen, especially on the inside, with the only noticeable downside being that at present only gas and diesel models are available. A hybrid XC40 is set to become available by the end of the year, though, with an electric version coming in 2019 or 2020.
