The Swedish company is at the forefront of innovation when it comes to safety technology on its vehicles. Volvos are designed to withstand harsh Swedish weather, and so are made to suit nearly any occasion. The designs are sleek and clean, with interiors inspired by Scandinavian minimalism, making Volvo a great brand if you’re looking for something practical yet sophisticated.
Volvo incorporates its innovative safety technology – IntelliSafe – within the cars. The Drive Alert Control will alert you if you are getting drowsy at the wheel and give you guidance on where you can stop for a break, while the Blind Spot Information System lets you change lanes confidently. The Lane Keeping Aid system then steers you back into your lane if you start to drift out. If you aren’t already convinced on how seriously Volvo takes safety, it has also developed its City Safety technology to help detect pedestrians and cyclists on the road ahead and intersection braking to reduce the severity of a collision.
Volvo offer a range of vehicle types such as SUVs and crossovers, hatchbacks and saloons. The Volvo S90 is one of Volvo’s luxury saloons offering a sophisticated and powerful driving experience. Its supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines keep the weight at the front of the car to a minimum, to improve agility.
If you’re looking for a car that’s more spacious, the Volvo XC60 is a good choice with 505 litres of boot space – 1,432 litres with the back seats folded. Alternatively, if you’re seeking something smaller but with the same premium quality, the Volvo V40 is an excellent option.
