Built to withstand harsh Scandinavian winters, Volvo cars are synonymous with safety, technology and robustness. Part of the Chinese Geely Group, the Swedish company may be most well-known for its large estates, but these days Volvo also makes a range of premium hatchbacks, saloons and sports utility vehicles (SUVs). The Volvo range isn’t vast, but there’s something for everyone. At the smaller end of the scale, the range kicks off with the V40, a stylish, economical five-door hatchback. The V60 is a compact estate and is one of Volvo's best-selling cars, while the V90 estate offers a bit more room but doesn’t stint on style and comfort. There are two saloons to choose from - the S60 compact executive saloon and the S90, Volvo’s flagship large executive saloon.
A familiar sight on the roads, Volvo’s SUVs combine excellent build quality with great performance. The smallest model is the compact, urban XC40, while the XC60 is a premium crossover SUV that’s a practical and stylish alternative to a saloon. The largest model in the range is the XC90, a full-blooded seven-seat 4x4 with a high-quality interior and class-leading technology. And because all models in the range – with the exception of the V40 - are available with all-wheel drive and as plug-in hybrids, whatever you need from your next car, it’s worth considering a Volvo.
