Volvo Ropes In Three Texas Auto Writers Association Awards
Luxury brand wins Best Interior, Luxury CUV of Texas and overall CUV of Texas

The new Volvo XC90 is the most-awarded SUV of the century, and it recently lassoed in three more honors at the 2016 TAWA Truck Rodeo.

In addition to defending its title as CUV of Texas, the XC90 was also named Luxury CUV of Texas and was awarded Best Interior.

"To come to the Texas Truck Rodeo and win a category is impressive enough; to repeat both the category, as well as the overall segment award, back-to-back says a great deal about just how competitive Volvo's XC90 is," said TAWA President Nic Phillips.

Seventy-one vehicles were tested both on and off-road for two days in the scenic Texas Hill Country while climbing rocks, crossing creeks and evading wildlife. The TAWA members performing the evaluations found that the XC90 had top-of-the-line technology features in place to do such activities safely. Pair the high-tech safety features with its sleek, uncluttered Scandinavian design, and it is no surprise the Volvo crossover is a widespread award-winner.

"Our journalists were overwhelming impressed by the XC90 Excellence's luxurious interior (that) they named it the best interior of any vehicle at the Texas Truck Rodeo. There's little question in our Member's opinion, the XC90 is a luxury CUV segment leader," Phillips said.

The XC90 also turned heads with its T8 plugin hybrid powertrain, as it was the first plugin to ever be featured at the annual Truck Rodeo.
