The Volvo Winter Kit comprises all the essential items needed in the car when it’s cold and frosty: concentrated windscreen washer fluid, de-icer spray, lock defroster, condensation cloth and an ice scraper. It is available from Volvo dealers for £8.99, and would make an ideal stocking filler this Christmas.
