Stoke-on-Trent motorists can now experience a range of award-winning cars at their local Volvo retailer, after the manufacturer won four prestigious trophies at the second annual BusinessCar Awards.

Holdcroft Stoke is proud to announce that the Volvo XC40 won the BusinessCar Award for New Company Car of the Year, rubber-stamping it as the car of choice for fleet drivers. The XC40 was also named Best Compact SUV, while the XC90 scooped Best Large SUV. Volvo itself was named Manufacturer of the Year for its commitment to leading the way in safety, connectivity and electrification, developing the best models for fleet drivers.

The BusinessCar Awards recognise the best the industry has to offer, from manufacturers, suppliers and fleet managers. BusinessCar is the UK’s biggest fleet publication, read by almost 19,000 fleet decision-makers every fortnight.

Qashem Miah, General Manager at Holdcroft Stoke, said: “Volvo is a brand that’s really going places, with a range of exciting new cars that appeal to company car drivers and private buyers alike.

“We’re delighted that the judges praised the XC40 and XC90 so highly, and are inviting Stoke-on-Trent car buyers to come and test drive the range and see how fantastic they are for themselves.

“Alongside Volvo being named Manufacturer of the Year, these wins show that with our commitment to leading automotive safety and connectivity, as well as electrification, we are delivering exactly what the fleet market both wants and needs.”

The XC40 and XC90 are available from Holdcroft Stoke with a wealth of advanced and useful technology, including Volvo’s pioneering semi-autonomous Pilot Assist system, City Safety automatic emergency braking and a 360-degree camera that helps drivers manoeuvre their car into tight parking spaces. Both cars also feature the Sensus nine-inch touchscreen and voice-activated control systems that allow easy access to the cars’ infotainment and connectivity functions, ideal for busy professionals on the move. In fact, the XC40 and XC90 both set new standards in their segments in terms of connectivity and safety technology, and design.

The XC40 and XC90’s premium credentials are reflected in their striking styling and interiors that are both supremely practical and comfortable, finished in high-quality materials. The XC40, in particular, offers ingenious and functional storage solutions, including especially generous storage space in the doors, an under-seat cubby, a special space for phones – including inductive charging capability – a foldout hook for small bags, plus a removable waste bin between the front seats.
