It's yet another SUV that takes the World Car Of the Year 2018 and this year it's the Volvo XC60. It beat finalists like the Range Rover Velar, the Mazda CX-5. This is the second year on the trot that the World Car Of The Year award has been presented to an SUV. It was the Jaguar F-Pace that was crowned the World Car Of the Year in 2017 and the SUV trend seems to continue.
Well, it was an SUV that took the honours in the World Car Design category as well. The Range Rover Velar beat the likes of the Lexus LC 500 and the Volvo XC 60 to take the top honours.

In the Luxury segment, it was the new generation Audi A8 that took top honours and beat two cars from Porsche - the new Cayenne and Panamera. The A8 is the most technologically advanced Audi ever and the company has achieved Level 3 autonomous function with this car.

The sixth generation Polo has grown. It's larger than its predecessor in all of its dimensions. It looks like stepping onto the MQB platform and borrowing technology from Audi has really boosted the feature list of the car.
