Living with the XC90

 

Living with the XC90

The Glovers have a clear idea of what role their car should play in their lives. They want a car that looks good and makes them feel good. But most importantly, they want a car that feels like a natural part of their everyday. It should be there to give a helping hand, it should be there to keep you safe and it should be there for those moments when you fancy a break from the city and want to get away from it all.
 

We invited the Glovers to take the all-new Volvo XC90 for a test drive. So what did they think?
Did it meet their everyday demands and deliver everything they believe a good car should?

 

 

Meet our friends from Chicago

To get a glimpse of the city, and to get to know the XC90 even better, watch our films where we meet some of Chicago’s residents. Meet car collector, Andrew Vogel, and share in his passion for everything on four wheels. Get to know cycling enthusiast, Neo Zambas, who shows us the Windy City’s best cycling spots. And finally, meet Leah who spends her time on the lookout for exciting new outdoor adventures. She took us to Maggie Daley Park for a quick course in bouldering.

Life’s invisible luxury

This article is part of our ‘Passionate people behind Volvo’ series. In this article, we meet two of the experts who work as part of Volvo Cars’ Interior Air Quality Testing Team.

The race for perfection

In this article, we visit the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard in Lisbon, Portugal. Here, we meet the team of experts responsible for repairing and re-fitting the entire fleet of Volvo Ocean 65 boats that will compete in the 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. We describe each team member’s individual area of expertise and show how the team works together to ensure that each boat is repaired identically, on time and to the highest possible standard. Their expertise in different areas represents the same level of competence you find at a Volvo workshop. We also meet Swedish sailor Martin Strömberg, who won the 2011-12 edition of the race, to find out what a great service programme gives him as a sailor.

Lifestyle

In search of a happy place

Buying a car won’t make you happy. This may seem like an odd statement for a car manufacturer to make. But it’s true. What a car gives you, however, is the opportunity to discover new places, meet new people and experience life on your terms. It’s these experiences and the memories and friends you make along the way that will bring you happiness. Our cars are simply a way of helping you find it. We took ourselves, and our trusty XC90, to Iceland, where we set off in search of happiness.
