The Volvo V90 has been named 2016 Scottish Car of the Year at the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers' Awards in Edinburgh. Volvo's new premium estate also won the Estate Car of the Year award.
The V90 was praised for its practicality, high-quality interior and stylish good looks. It's innovative technology, which includes the ground-breaking Sensus touch screen infotainment system also contributed to the V90 winning the coveted Car of the Year title.
The V90 is built on advanced technology, from the D5 diesel engine benefiting from PowerPulse, a system that uses compressed air to boost responsiveness at low revs, to Pilot Assist, the semi-autonomous drive technology fitted as standard which takes care of steering, acceleration and braking up to 80mph.
A host of advanced safety equipment comes as standard with the V90, including two world firsts: Large Animal Detection and Run-off Road Mitigation. Large Animal Detection helps to prevent collisions with animals such as deer, by scanning the area in front of the car and automatically applying brakes if you fail to react in time. Run-off Road Mitigation is designed to stop the car inadvertently leaving the road by applying the steering if the car gets too close to the edge of the carriageway.
