It is safe, well-run, well decorated, a good buy and beautiful as a Swedish lake.
Superlativerne was not to be mistaken as a field of seven professional erhvervsbilister with at least 50,000 miles on the counter, two automotive journalists and a physiotherapist had 10 of the year's most exciting company cars under the knife – and ultimately chose the new Volvo V60 with 190 horsepower as this Year's company Car 2019.
the Event, which the trade union Business Denmark stood behind, took place on the roads around Middelfart, in which the Volvo V60 laid out in the leader's jersey in a finalefelt, which consisted of VW Passat Variant, Opel Insignia Country Tourer and the Peugeot 508 at the subsequent positions.
Volvo V60 came on the market earlier in the year and follows the design in the footsteps of the stylish S/V90, XC60 and XC40 models. The latter high SUV was also in this year's field, but according to Lars Bundgaard, who is the chairman of the trafikpolitisk committee at Business Denmark, was the V60 anyway a sure winner.
- the Volvo V60 is a sovereign confident, Swedish winner. It has good comfort, is practical and spacious and has a gorgeous design. It has comfortable and safe handling characteristics with good equipment at a sensible taxation, says Lars Bundgaard.
Many of the jury members placed particular emphasis on the V60-the model's comfort, safety equipment and total package in their ratings.
One of the jury members is Bo Pedersen, who is employed at Ruko A/S and a total run 65.000 kilometers per year.
- the Volvo V60 is an excellent car that holds all the way through. It offers good convenience, fine seats and comprehensive safety equipment, he says.
the Model is also favorite by Stig Holm, who is the physiotherapist and head of Arbejdsmiljøcentret in Kolding. He stood for the ergonomic evaluation of car interiors, seats and leadership.
- the Volvo V60 differs markedly from the other cars in the field and is a very well-rounded car. The seats are really good, the steering wheel is easy to set up and operation works intuitive, says Stig Holm.
He had, however, like to seen, to the bottom of the seat could be pulled out, so that it is supported better under the legs. It is possible in some of the other cars.
In the year included the field of deltagerbiler also three high, medium-sized cars in the premiumklassen or on the edge of this. In addition to the Volvo XC40 was the BMW X2 and VW Tiguan, which competed against a field of more classic cars like the Ford Mondeo wagon, Audi A4 Avant, the facelifted Mazda6 station wagon and the all-new Peugeot 508, there is as yet only available as a hatchback with five doors.
the Frenchman brought high praise for its delicious appearance, comprehensive equipment level and sporty handling, but the model fell in the small space, especially the rear seat, the low access and relatively high level of taxation on 390.000 euros.
The rating could change when the upcoming 508 station wagon lands at home for the next year.
For comparison, start the taxation on the vinderbilen, Volvo V60 D4 Aut. 'Momentum', on the 376.000 crowns, while testbilen ran up in the 406.000 crowns.
For the base price to get the professional motorist, a diesel engine with automatic transmission and 190 hp and a security suite with advanced emergency brake, which detects people and large animals, oil-fired and seats with eljusterbar lumbar support as standard equipment. A minus is, however, that the adaptive cruise control are optional. It runs up into 15,000 dollars in a package that also contains partially self-propelled functions.
At Leaseplan, which is the country's largest companies in the field of erhvervsleasing of company cars, see executive director Michael Olsen Volvo V60 as a model with a range of qualities and great potential.
He calls the victory fully deserved, in particular because the Volvo today is experienced as a premiumbil, that even offers much space for sensible leasingpriser.
- Volvo has always had a reputation for being a safe car. But a lot has happened, after that Volvo was chinese owners, who have developed the brand, and where the design has come up with. When 10 years ago bought a Volvo, it was for other reasons than today, where the brand also just as much be purchased because of car design, says Michael Olsen, and adds:
- The, as looking at a premiummodel from Audi, BMW or Mercedes, but will try something else, now has four brands, rather than three to choose from, he says.
The professional drivers poured in general, most of the cars in the classic firmaklasse forward for the higher cars. This was also true for Stine S. Jensen from Protect A/S, running 65.000 kilometers per year.
I felt at home in a car such as the BMW X2. But as the high Volvo XC40 is not big enough and fall through on the square, just as it is difficult to get things into the trunk. Here is the Volvo V60 is far more regular and with larger trunk, and then it has a greater lækkerhedsværdi and intuitive operation, she says.
