The Volvo XC40 has become the Supreme Winner of the 2018 Women’s World Car of the Year. It is the only contest with a jury represented by exclusively female journalists.
This year the jury consisted of 34 journalists from 27 countries. The criteria for choice are safety, price/quality ratio, aesthetic look, convenience of luggage placement, comfort for travel with children, ease-to-drive, environmental friendliness, available colors, etc.

Then, in the second round, the Volvo XC40 became the favorite among three finalists. The other two are the Jaguars – E-PACE and I-PACE.
