The Auto Express Used Car Honours 2004, announced on 7 April, reveal the Volvo V70 as its ‘Best Estate’ again – for the 8th year running. In fact, the Volvo V70 has proved unbeatable and has won the ‘Best Estate’ award every year since the Auto Express Used Car Honours were launched.
"Volvo builds the best estate cars in the world; and that's as true of its used cars as it is when they're new," said Auto Express motoring writer Craig Cheetham. "The Swedish model is unique as it's designed from scratch as a purpose built estate car, and it's a truly luxurious and desirable package," continued Craig, who in a hungry moment concluded: "Volvos and estate cars go together like apple pie and custard. They're a cracking combination and simply can't be beaten."
Presenting the Auto Express Used Car Honours, TV's Mike Brewer added: "The Volvo V70 is a safe and solid used buy. I'd recommend one to my granny, and every other generation of her family!"Volvo Selected Used Cars Increase Sales by 35%
With the added security and assurance of the Volvo Selected Used Car programme, Volvo's safety, quality and durability make all Volvos a sound investment as used cars – particularly the V70 'best estate' which accounted for 30 per cent of Volvo Selected Used Car sales in 2003.
Volvo has seen a dramatic 35 per cent increase in sales of its used cars through its award-winning Selected Used Cars programme since 2001, and Volvo dealers’ stocks boosted by cars part exchanged after a successful March for new car sales, are ready for the usual influx of customers looking for a used car over the Easter holidays.
