A car dealership in Bradford is pleased to announce that its latest model, which has recently become available for purchase, has been named The Sun’s Car of the Year and Small SUV/Crossover of the Year at the News UK Motor Awards.

Ray Chapman Motors, located on Canal Road in Bradford, is overjoyed that the brand-new Volvo EX30 has received these prestigious accolades, even before the first cars hit the roads in the UK.

The EX30, Volvo’s smallest-ever SUV, was praised for being the leading model in its category. It offers a range of purely electric powertrains, a design with a strong focus on sustainability, state-of-the-art technology, and Volvo’s hallmark quality and safety features, all at an affordable price.

Rob Gill, The Sun Motors Editor, said: “The EX30 is everything you expect a modern Volvo to be – safe, Scandi cool and sustainable – at a price you’d never expect. The EX30 is going to be a huge hit. We’re utterly convinced of it. It is the stand-out winner as The Sun Car of the Year.”

In addition to this recognition, the EX30 also clinched the title of Small SUV/Crossover of the Year at the News UK Motor Awards, which encompasses various national media platforms, including The Sunday Times.

Nick Rufford, Motoring Editor at The Sunday Times, added: “Savvy buyers have been holding out for an electric SUV that’s smart looking, has vim and zest, and doesn’t break the bank. This mini-Volvo’s sub-£34,000 starting price undercuts not only its electric rivals but plenty of petrol SUVs, too.”

Mark Gooseman, Group Sales Manager at Ray Chapman Motors Bradford, said: “We’ve already seen real excitement about the EX30 since launching the car earlier this summer, which these two awards will only add to as drivers look for an affordable electric option to replace their current vehicles.

“The EX30 offers all of the premium quality, safety and sustainability associated with Volvo Cars, in a convenient, compact and affordable package – so it’s great to see this already being recognised by national publications.

“We welcome Bradford drivers to pop into Ray Chapman Motors Bradford to learn more about the small but mighty EX30 and chat with our friendly team of experts.”
