All Volvo Models Insured
Everyone knows Volvo as the safe, solid and reliable car brand. They are best known for their angular family estates throughout the 1960s to 80s that could hold everything including the dog. However, alongside their famous estates, Volvo also produced the sleek P1800 famously used by Roger Moore in The Saint.
Volvo raced an estate vehicle in BTCC in 1994; the 850 T5R. Not only were these cars quick, but they could carry a great amount – hence they became favourites of UK police forces.
However, more important than any single vehicle, was in fact the invention of the 3 point seat belt in 1959 by one of Volvo’s engineers. They later released the patent so that all manufacturers could use it.
The Volvo Range
Today, Volvo manufactures SUVs with the XC range, estates with the V range and saloons with the S range. Having offered the XC90 and XC60 for some time, Volvo now has an SUV range that accounts for more than half of all the cars it sells.
In July 2017, Volvo announced that new models launched from 2019 onward would be fully electric or hybrid-electric.

Their commitment to safety shows – there are nine Volvo models including the Volvo XC90 – in which no one in the United States died in the four years from 2009 to 2012.
How many miles will a Volvo last?
Many Volvo owners state that their cars have lasted up to the 300k mile mark, but more realistically, the car will last up to around 200k . Like anything, this will entirely depend on how well you maintain and look after your car.
Are repairs on a Volvo expensive?
Though they are by no means one of the most expensive brands, they are on the higher end of the scale for repair costs.
What is the best Volvo car?
This will depend on your needs. Their range includes medium-sized hatchbacks, saloons, estates and SUVs – so if you have children and a dog, there’s plenty of choice with their larger vehicles. If it’s you alone, hatchbacks like the V40 are perfectly suited to everyday, reliable driving.
