Showroom 2018

As we head into a new year with more new Volvo models, I Roll provides a quick tour of what is one of the world’s fastest-growing and most impressive luxury-car portfolios.


A five-door package designed to express your individualism, and suited perfectly to the city thanks to its compact dimensions and nimble nature. The cabin transcends the V40’s size to feel like a large car inside, and the contemporary interior design complements the distinctive exterior with its striking details. A choice of nine alloy-wheel designs allows for a personal style statement, while variants include a Cross Country model for individuals looking for a more elevated view of the road and more adventurous ground clearance.


A great driving experience is at the heart of Volvo’s handsome yet striking mid-sized sedan. For dynamic journeys, it’s fitting that the S60 is underpinned by a well-balanced and responsive Dynamic chassis – encouraging scenic routes home. The S60 mixes pleasure with business, however, with an interior that delivers an alluring blend of legendary Volvo comfort, modern materials, and traditional craftsmanship.


Volvo’s sportswagon caters for people requiring the versatility of an estate car as well as an entertaining driving experience. The V60 is designed to help you get the most out of your life. As well as a useful 430-litre boot, the rear seats split-fold in a 40/20/40 configuration to ensure you can accommodate passengers and cargo without compromising either. As an example of Volvo ingenuity, two-stage child booster cushions fold out of the rear seats.


Meet the executive car that redefines the luxury sedan, combining distinctive Scandinavian design and advanced technology. Beyond the elegant yet athletic exterior design is a cabin crafted from exceptional materials such as Swedish crystal and flame birch. The chassis has been engineered to provide both precise handling and supple comfort, while a T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid variant capable of high power and low fuel economy leads a choice of impressive Drive-E powertrains.


For sophisticated adventures, the V90 Cross Country unites legendary Volvo wagon versatility with go-anywhere capability. This is an elegantly versatile vehicle designed to get you to where you want to go – in safety, comfort and control. Rugged exterior design cues and increase ground clearance showcase a model equipped to tackle the rough stuff, while inside the Cross Country’s cabin is a haven of serenity, spaciousness, and luxuriousness.


Volvo’s first ever compact SUV arrives in the second quarter of 2018, bringing a highly expressive design inside and out, as well as radical interior storage solutions that are the hallmark of a vehicle designed to meet the challenges of modern city life. The XC40 will be offered with a broader, bolder palette of colours, along with new distinctive trims and materials, and will be available with technology from bigger Volvo models. As the first of a new range of compact Volvos, the XC40 will also debut a new T5 Twin Engine powertrain.


The evolution of Volvo’s hugely popular mid-sized luxury SUV is still fresh in showrooms, and the recent recipient of Drive.com.au’s Car of the Year award for Best Luxury SUV Under $80,000 and Safety Innovation. The XC60 is ready for whatever activity or adventure awaits, with a chassis capable of providing an engaging, confidence-inspiring drive, and a cabin boasting outstanding comfort and beautifully crafted details.


The XC90 is a luxury SUV for the 21st century. It puts first-class comfort at the heart of every journey, with a lavishly appointed and superbly crafted cabin that creates a sanctuary of luxury, space and calm designed. A unique Volvo experience is completed with the latest safety innovations, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Pilot Assist, and sophisticated powertrains delivering strong performance without compromise.
