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?

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.

Alchemy of leather

For more than thirty years, the interiors of Volvo cars have been graced with the finest leather from Bridge of Weir Leather Company in Scotland. Because behind every luxurious piece of Bridge of Weir leather, you’ll find over a century’s worth of craftsmanship, knowledge and expertise. In fact, many consider it to be the finest automotive leather in the world. Well, why else would it be in your Volvo?

Connectivity In Berlin

After travelling the world for 12 years, Cologne-born entrepreneur Gundula Cöllen decided it was time to return to Germany and reconnect with her homeland. And when it came to choosing a city in which to settle down in and start up a new business, she only had one place in mind – Berlin.

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.
