A historic view on Volvo

Volvo is also known for its pared down Scandinavian design, and a minimalist styling approach is evident in the cabins of its latest models. The S40 saloon and its V50 estate counterpart are based on the same chassis as the latest Ford Focus and share its polished driving dynamics. They're popular second hand cars and buyers after something even sportier might also like the C30 hatch launched in 2006. There's also the larger S60 saloon and the S80 which is bigger still but many still associate Volvo with big estate cars first and foremost, so the V70 gets plenty of attention on the pre-owned market. With tonnes of carrying capacity, the V70 is an old school family estate and still a strong alternative to the various MPV options that are around these days. There's also the option to buy a used Volvo 4x4 and that means the XC90 and its smaller brother, the XC60. Both are aimed at family buyers like the V70 and do a good job of mixing MPV practicality with that 4x4 feel, although these aren't the vehicles for serious off-roading. Volvo used cars remain very popular on the used second hand market and it's little wonder given their safety levels and family-friendly design.
