Volvo's XC40 is another What Car? Award winner, having scooped Family SUV of the Year this January and our overall Car of the Year title in 2018. It's a stylish as it is safe, and it has a classier interior than any of its similarly priced rivals.

True MPG 36.5mpg

The XC60 isn't as easy to recommend as the XC40, mainly because its ride is on the firm side. However, it does have a slightly better True MPG figure, despite being a bigger car.
