Car of the Year Awards 2022: Family SUV of the Year

Waterhouse is delighted to see the XC40 rightly winning this prestigious award with Whatcar. Cars in this class must obviously provide sufficient space for families. However, the best also offer a comfortable ride and tidy handling, and blend gutsy performance with wallet-friendly costs.

Their pick of the engine range is the T4 plug-in hybrid, which mixes a 1.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor. In their test, the XC40 was able to cover 21 miles purely on battery power (versus an official figure of 28 miles); that could be your whole commute. It’s a brisk car, too, covering the 0-60mph sprint in just 7.5 sec in our test, and low CO2 emissions make it a solid choice for company car drivers.
