THE big Volvo is back, this time in an all-new package. There’s sleeker styling, a new chassis, a wider choice of engines, the availability of four-wheel drive as well as the usual array of safety systems. Volvo estimates that between 70-80% of sales will be to corporate buyers, and that 70% of buyers will be new to the brand. The S80 range goes on sale in July, with prices ranging from £24,350 to £41,725.
THE huge and imposing Q7 hits UK shores in June to take on the luxury SUV sector. It is more than five metres long, two metres wide and 1.7 metres tall and can seat seven people comfortably. It’s also highly specced, with cruise control, climate control and adaptive air suspension as standard. Two models will be available – the 3.0 TDI turbodiesel or the 4.2-litre V8 petrol. Prices start at £37,285 for the diesel.
