At home anywhere
When we began making cars in 1927, it was because we believed no other car manufacturer was making them strong enough or safe enough to cope with the harsh Swedish landscape and climate. Over the years, our climate and landscape haven’t changed that much, but our cars certainly have.
The art of comfort
With the release of the all-new XC90, Volvo Cars introduced a thrilling, thoroughly modern take on the concept of Scandinavian luxury. Here was a car where innovative design features effortlessly integrated with natural materials to create a luxurious interior, which was as comfortable as it was eye-catching. Now, with the release of the new Volvo S90, Volvo V90 and Volvo XC90 Excellence, our designers have kept their focus on luxury and wellbeing and used it to turn the concept of in-car comfort into an art form.
