Late last month, it was announced that the Volvo XC60 SUV had earned the title of Best Small Luxury SUV in the "Best Family Cars of 2019" list, proving once again that form and function can co-exist even in a family vehicle.

Factors that helped the Volvo XC60 take the title include the generous interior passenger space, an intuitive infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, and clever child seats that adapt to different-size bodies. Naturally, the premium interior appointments and innovative safety systems also drew praise.

In a press release, Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO, Volvo Car USA, commented, "The XC60 is perfect for families. It’s a perfect combination of size, design, technology and of course safety. You can even get it as a 400 horsepower plug-in hybrid so you can have fun of a fast car with minimal impact on the environment."

when deciding their award winners, editors employed an engineer-guided rating and testing process that covered more than 30 criteria in regard to driving performance, interior, comfort, utility, and technology. Added weight was given to vehicles that offered available safety features and technology features designed specifically with families in mind.
