Volvo XC90 finds favour with British fleets

FLEET Hire and Woodway Packaging and Office Supplies have become some of the first fleets in the country to take on the Volvo XC90 Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV). Woodway, based in Northampton, took delivery of two new XC90 D5 SEs from Bells Motor Group, Northampton, as a newcomer to the Volvo range.

Sales director Jason Inwood said: 'We have never had a Volvo on our fleet before but when we saw the new XC90 we just had to have one. It is a good-looking vehicle, yet it offers impressive levels of safety and comfort, which are particularly important to me as I have a young family, plus I cover around 40,000 business miles a year. I use the car to visit existing and potential customers around the UK and find it excellent for carrying samples as I can put the seats down easily to create the required space. I also take my clients out in my vehicle so I feel it is important to drive a car that makes a first-class impression.'

Fleet Hire already has more than 100 Volvos on lease to clients. Bob Chamberlain, a founding director of Fleet Hire said: 'I have just taken delivery of a new XC90 for myself. I was impressed by the ride quality and high level of standard specification.'
