Appreciating the XC90

 

Appreciating the XC90

For Andrew Vogel, cars have been a life-long passion. Today, Andrew is Vice President of Klairmont Kollections, which houses hundreds of outstanding classic cars – from an original 1930’s Duesenberg to a 1918 Pierce Arrow. So, when it comes to cars, it’s safe to say Andrew knows what he’s talking about. But what would this passionate car collector make of the new Volvo XC90? We invited Andrew to take the XC90 for a test drive. So, what was the verdict? Did Andrew feel the XC90 was worthy of a place in his collection?

 

 

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 Angela Carter-Rhoades, who guides us through the Chicago streets she calls home. Travel to the beach with Taylor and her dog Harlow, who spend a lot of time in the car as Harlow just loves life on the road. 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.

Angela was raised on the west side of Chicago, but has lived in different parts of the city. Come along as she guides us through her Chicago, whilst simultaneously managing her business from the driver’s seat.

Meet Taylor and Harlow

Meet Taylor and Harlow

Taylor is a dog-owner, blogger and comedian who moved to Chicago from Nebraska five years ago. If she doesn’t make it as a comedian Taylor says she’ll become a truck driver, as her dog Harlow loves life on the road. We meet up with Taylor and Harlow and head out to Montrose Harbor Dog Beach.

“Although Chicago’s a big city, it offers so many great opportunities for outdoor activities. Mountain climbing, cycling, kayaking. It’s all possible here,” says outdoor enthusiast, Leah, as she shows us around the Chicago she calls home.

Services

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.

Collaboration

Bound by sound

1966 was quite a year for music. The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Bob Dylan all released groundbreaking albums that completely transformed the cultural landscape. But while Lennon and McCartney and their contemporaries were busy reinventing the way music was made, a classical music enthusiast called John Bowers was focusing his attention and expertise on reinventing the way we listened to it.

Ownership

An Unforgettable Adventure

Following the road ahead is often the easiest route to take, but it rarely leads to exciting discoveries. This is our philosophy when we design our cars and the thinking behind Factory Delivery Experience. Factory Delivery Experience gives you the unique opportunity to collect your new Volvo from our factory in Gothenburg, Sweden. But that’s not all you’ll find waiting for you when you arrive in the home of Volvo Cars
