Exploring Oslo in the XC40
Oslo’s mix of busy streets and laid-back Scandinavian attitude is the backdrop as we discover what makes the new XC40 the perfect SUV for the city.
Sounds of the city
Music is the heartbeat of urban culture, as we experience on a tour around Oslo in the Volvo XC40. This is a car built to help you make the most of your music.
Erik Åleby, colour and materials designer, talks about how the new XC40 showcases Volvo Cars at its most daring and expressive, and how the beautiful, sustainable materials in its cabin reflect contemporary Scandinavian design.
A new lease of life
In 1945, Volvo Cars began renovating gearboxes in the small Swedish town of Köping. Today, our commitment to remanufacturing Volvo Genuine Parts is stronger than ever: which is good news for you, your car and the environment.
Travelling without a trace
