With an unprecedented number of all-new models launched this year, plus the latest 2007 models and a number of special offers, Volvo has plenty to tempt new car buyers this summer – and for this September’s new ‘56’ number plate.
New Volvo XC90
Volvo has just announced details of a range of design changes and enhancements to the XC90’s exterior and interior, plus the exciting arrival of the 4.4-litre V8 and 3.2-litre six-cylinder engines.
The versatile interior still offers the flexibility of seven seats with 64 seating configurations, but has been enhanced with details such as Aux input for MPA or i-Pod connection (WMA compatible), a new display for audio and telephone systems, satin chrome inserts on various controls and air vents, improved door grab handle design and the introduction of Sovereign Hide soft leather upholstery – which is standard on the new SE Lux trim level.
The range-topping Executive model is also noticeably upgraded with a more premium feel to the exterior and interior with full Executive soft leather upholstery with double contrast stitching for all seven seats (or the option of Volvo’s Inscription™ range of soft leather upholstery), new 19in alloy wheels and chrome C-pillar and door mirror caps, plus Volvo’s awesome 650W Dynaudio Premium Sound audio system with Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound and 12 Dynaudio speakers as standard.
The Volvo XC90 range is available from £32,820 (D5 S) up to £53,965 (V8 Executive).
All-New Volvo S80 executive saloon
With an all-new, dynamic exterior and refined, luxurious Scandinavian interior and ride and handling developed on UK roads, the all-new Volvo S80 arrives in Volvo showrooms this summer to give executive car buyers a distinctive new rival to the traditional German brands.
Performance and economy are provided by Volvo’s popular 2.4-litre, five-cylinder 2.4D (163PS) and D5 (185PS) turbodiesels, a 2.5T (200PS) petrol and two new petrol engines – a 3.2-litre, six-cylinder (238PS) and 4.4-litre, V8 (315PS). As well as S and SE trim levels, there’s the added dynamic ability and comforts of new SE Sport and SE Lux models and a substantially enhanced, range-topping Executive model. Prices start from £24,375.
New luxuries available include a Personal Car Communicator with keyless drive, ventilated and heated leather upholstery, Active Cruise Control with Collision Warning and Brake Support, a Clean Zone Interior Package to help allergy sufferers and a 650W Dynaudio Premium Sound audio system with Dolby Pro Logic II Surround Sound and 12 high quality Dynaudio speakers.
