The new number plate this September is a 53. And it was in 1953, on 4 July, that the first ever Volvo estate car was born. Volvo is celebrating the 50th birthday of the Volvo estate car with some enticing offers at participating retailers.
For instance, the full size, award winning V70 estate is surprisingly affordable – from just £279 per month* through the Volvo Advantage PCP scheme for the new V70 2.0T S with a 180bhp, 2.0-litre turbo, five cylinder engine.
But Volvo is not just about estate cars and has been making saloons for even longer. Today’s range starts from just £14,485 for the S40 1.6 S – complete with leather upholstery, air conditioning, alloys and CD player. This model is available for £199 per month* with a deposit of as little as £1,999, thanks to an attractive offer from Volvo Car Finance for registrations up to 30 September 2003.
The Volvo saloon range also includes the S60, where the new high performance, 300bhp ‘R’ version is making its first appearance in showrooms and the recently refined S80 which offers unrivalled long distance comfort.
Completing the Volvo range are the C70 convertible, enjoying its best sales performance since its launch, the XC70 – the alternative AWD, go anywhere estate car – and of course the all-conquering XC90 premium 4x4 and Auto Express ‘Car of the Year 2003’.
So whether you are an existing Volvo owner or someone who has always aspired to own one, Volvo retailers have a range of affordable offers to really make 53 a number worth remembering!Published 3 August 2003
