Volvo buying guide

What Volvo models are there?

First up is the V40. It’s no longer available new but a used Volvo V40 is a compelling alternative to a BMW 1 Series or Audi A3. It features Volvo’s fixation on safety and comfort distilled into a smaller, easy-to-park package. Look out for the R-Design trim level if you’d like sporty looks similar to Audi’s S Line trim.

The Volvo S60 saloon is a Swedish take on the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class. It’s a great mile-muncher, with a swish interior and comfortable seats. There are powerful petrol or plug-in hybrid engine options, with the range-topping hybrid offering incredible straight-line pace.

The estate version of the S60 is called the V60. It brings a bigger boot and a full-height tailgate, but keeps Volvo’s confident style inside and out. You get a similar choice of petrol and hybrid engines as the S60, plus frugal diesel engines. Additionally, there’s a Cross Country version with four-wheel drive, body cladding and a taller ride height.

Volvo’s larger saloon is the S90, which may be a better choice over the S60 if you’re regularly going to be giving lifts to colleagues or friends. It’s bigger in the back than the S60, and is a high-quality choice for used buyers. It’ll have your neighbours’ curtains twitching, that’s for sure.

Again, there’s a roomy estate version, called the V90. In addition to the spacious rear seats, you get a vast boot that’s big enough to swallow lots of family gear or a couple of enthusiastic dogs. It boasts the same classy cabin as the S90, and comes with a good spread of engine choices. Like the V60, there’s a Cross Country version if you need some off-road capability.

 

Which Volvo models are SUVs?

Volvo’s current range of SUVs is marked out by ‘XC’ and then two numbers. The first is the XC40, a chunky-looking Audi Q3 rival that’s proved hugely popular. Despite being the brand’s latest entry-level model, it comes with much of the tech and the ambiance of more expensive Volvos. A wide range of engines and trim levels ensure there’s an option to suit any interested buyer.

Step up to the Volvo XC60 and you’ll get space in abundance, both for passengers and luggage. The XC60 offers an assured feel that’ll take the strain out of everyday driving, not to mention plenty of driver aids to keep you safe. Powerful plug-in hybrid versions offer impressive performance and the potential for lower running costs.

Volvo’s largest SUV is the XC90. It’s a luxurious alternative to the Audi Q7 or BMW X5, seats up to seven people and lets you choose from a range of powertrains. The XC90 comes with four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox as standard, so it’ll cope with whatever weather and conditions you face.

FAQs

Volvo makes a fully electric version of the XC40, as well as a coupe version called the C40. While the XC40 is also available with engines or hybrid options, the C40 is electric-only. Both of Volvo’s EVs use the same setups – either a single-motor, two-wheel-drive powertrain, or a potent dual-motor, four-wheel-drive version with enough power to surprise sports car drivers. Whichever you pick, the official range estimate stands at more than 250 miles.

Until recently, two of Volvo’s trim levels were called Momentum and Inscription. Momentum is typically the entry-level offering, but it’ll still come with features like sat nav, cruise control and LED headlights. Inscription is a high-spec, luxury-focused trim level, often featuring goodies like heated seats and a crystal gear lever.

Volvo’s R-Design trim level tends to sit between Momentum and Inscription, and is the one to pick if you want sportier styling. R-Design cars may offer black exterior trim, two-colour alloy wheels and a slightly pointier body kit. It’s Volvo’s equivalent of BMW’s M Sport trim or Mercedes’ AMG Line package.

Geartronic is the name Volvo gives to some of its automatic gearboxes. It’ll often have eight speeds, so can be more refined than a traditional six-speed manual gearbox. These days, the vast majority of Volvos come with an automatic gearbox.

You might spot a letter and number next to a Volvo model name, such as T2, B5 or D4. While they’re largely meaningless to most buyers, these badges signify the fuel type and the power on offer. T stands for petrol and D is for diesel. The higher the number, the more power it has, so a T3 engine will be more powerful than a T2. If it’s followed by ‘Recharge’, such as T8 Recharge, that’s a plug-in hybrid engine. Confusingly, Volvo sometimes now uses combinations like B5 for its mild-hybrid engines, but diesel mild-hybrids are usually called something like B5 D.

As above, Volvo’s Recharge badging is used for its plug-in hybrids. It’s also used for its fully electric cars – an XC40 Recharge could be a hybrid or a fully electric car, so make sure you know what’s powering the car. In the XC40’s case, the electric car’s grille is blanked off, which is a reminder that there’s no engine.

Volvo On Call is a smartphone app that enables a host of connectivity features. Its primary function is to connect you with emergency services or roadside assistance if and when you need it. Additional features include the ability to lock your car remotely or see where it’s parked, plus a tracker if your car is stolen. It’s typically a subscription service with a yearly fee attached, and has a different number of features depending on the car you have.

Care by Volvo allows you to subscribe to a new car; it’s like a lease deal but with a selection of running costs included. But as is often the case with convenience, it doesn’t represent great value for money – and you’ll need to wait a number of months for the car to be delivered. Buy an equivalent nearly new Volvo from Motorpoint and you’ll pay significantly less per month, with same-day collection available from our stores.

It seems that the majority of Volvo owners are happy but, with all the technology on board, Volvos can occasionally be prone to annoying glitches and bugs. That’s the case with many tech-stuffed cars, though, and there’s nothing to suggest a Volvo will be a bad purchase.
