The UK’s leading extended vehicle warranty provider, Warrantywise, recently named the first ever headline partner for the Auto Express New Car Awards, congratulates all 22 class winners and overall Car of the Year winner, the all-new Volvo XC90.

Auto Express Editor-in-Chief, Steve Fowler, said: “We are delighted to have Warrantywise on board as our headline partner for the Auto Express New Car Awards.  It is a well established British brand, much like Auto Express, and also similar to us, in business to make car buying decisions and the ownership experience more rewarding, reassured and as trouble free as possible.  It is a great partnership.”

He added: “The past 12-months have been among the busiest and most exciting ever when it comes to new cars.  From city cars to supercars, there has been an onslaught of new arrivals to tempt buyers in to showrooms.  Once again our team of experienced road testers has run the rule over every newcomer, testing more than 300 new models over the past year, with 22 class winners and one overall winner named in our biggest and best Auto Express New Car Awards.”

Warrantywise CEO Lawrence Whittaker said: “It’s an honour to be involved with the Auto Express New Car Awards and to gain further insight into the hugely vibrant British automotive sector, its fantastic new products and the lengths that the road testers and writers go to to make their awards decisions.  Huge congratulations to all the winners, in a formidable year of competition and new product and technology, and special recognition of course to the very well deserved and outstanding overall Car of the Year winner, the Volvo XC90.”
