In July 2019 What Car? published their list of the best diesel cars. Number one on the list was the Vovlo XC40.
Here is what they had to say.
Volvo XC40 D3 R-Design Geartronic
Volvo's family SUV is brimming with both style and kit, while also being spacious and one of the very best cars of its type to drive. It's so good, in fact, that we named it as our overall Car of the Year for 2018. The 148bhp 2.0-litre D3 diesel is our recommended choice, because it's more flexible than the petrol T3 and more relaxing to drive. It's an economical choice, too, returning an impressive 42.9mpg in our True MPG test.
