short: A fast,
reliable and eco-friendly family sports cruiser
you say? Sure, why not. It has been a while since the
Swedish manufacturer (now owned by Ford) has been known
for more than a plain, reliable family wagon. Sporty
sedans and crossover vehicles are now part of the line.
Here is a fine example of what new technologies can
deliver: A fully loaded sports sedan at a reasonable
price. As well, we feel the car will give its owner
many years of trouble-free motoring. Since the trend
these days is to lease a car and trade it for a new
model with the latest gizmos after three years, you
might ask what is the point of a multi-year warranty
and an engine with a long life? Well, it’s always
nice to know you are driving a safe and reliable car.
That’s the feeling this Volvo gives you.

heavy and therefore slow. Set yourself straight and
enjoy this nimble and fast family car. It glides effortlessly,

to drive in the city, and it is a pleasure on the highway.

safety cage in this unibody construction vehicle. There
are so many safety features beyond the standard airbags,
like a whiplash protection system, that you really think
you are in a cocoon. When it’s time to go, stop,
or turn, electronics abound: Dynamic Stability Traction
Control (DSTC), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
with ABS and more.

designed to help you enjoy the ride. Leather upholstery
on driver and front passenger eight-way power seats
and dual zone electronic climate control allow for individual
tailoring to achieve maximum comfort. Long road trips
are easy with cruise and radio control incorporated
into the steering wheel. Split folding rear seats with
a center armrest and cup holders will keep the kids
happy, and the moon roof is always a nice touch.
In case you had not already heard, this car is friendly
to the environment, as it actually cleans while travelling!
