Volvo's 'Freedom Test Drive' events are a new way to experience Volvo cars - away from the traditional showroom with a wide range of models to drive at your leisure, on your own if preferred, at an exclusive venue across the UK.

From now until February, Volvo will be hosting weekend events at a series of five regional locations with the latest 2005 models of the entire Volvo range available for test drives. These can be taken unaccompanied or with friends and family, while Volvo representatives will be on hand at every venue with any information required.

The cars available to try range from the new, £16,098 1.8 S40 saloon to the flagship, £34,510 XC90 T6. Also included are the revised 2.0T and T5 engines in the S60 saloon and V70 estate, the new V50 Sportswagon, and the highly popular D5 turbodiesel engine available in the S60, S80, V70, XC70 and XC90.

In addition, professional drivers will be on hand to demonstrate some of Volvo's advanced technical features such as DSTC (Dynamic Stability and Traction Control) which is now standard across the range, and the Four-C active chassis that's now available on all of the larger Volvo models.

Full terms and conditions, plus details of all venues, dates and cars available to experience are available from a special website
