Overall winner of the UK Car of the Year Awards 2018 is..

The extremely popular medium-sized crossover – the Volvo XC60!

The Volvo XC60 has taken overall top spot at the UK Car of the Year Awards for 2018, just shy of a month since it was judged by the same panel as the Best Medium Crossover.
The panel of judges are made up of 27 of the UKs leading motoring journalists who write for such titles as Auto Express, The Independent and Top Gear. It’s their job to use their expertise in deciding which car’s will make it to the top of the 13 vehicle categories, before having to decide which one of them will take the overall crown as the UK Car of the Year.
The judging panel praised the Volvo XC60 for its comfort, styling and versatility, beating off the competition by just one point, as the Skoda Kodiaq came second followed in third place by the BMW 5 Series.
