Here's Why Visiting the Dealership Gets You the Best Auto Service

 And We Mean the Best!


 


Everyone needs to get their car serviced habitually, whether it's for an issue that has arisen, or for regular maintenance. In terms of where to get your vehicle serviced, we think the dealership is the best option. Of course, we may have some bias, but we're pretty sure you'll agree with us after reading this! After all, we stand firmly behind our brand here at Keystone Volvo. Let's take a look at some of the reasons why going to the dealership for your auto service is the best option!


Specialized Service

When you visit a dealership that specializes in your vehicle's brand, you are sure to get the best service. It's also the best way to ensure the parts are genuine OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). Top quality parts are generally what your vehicle originally came with. Other shops may offer aftermarket parts, which tend to be of lower quality.


Customer Service

Your local dealership will usually have the best customer service. Maintaining a lasting relationship, as well as a good reputation, is very important to them, so they will provide you with the highest quality of service possible. At the dealership, you and your car will be treated with the care and respect you both deserve. 


Guarantees

While independent mechanics sometimes offer guarantees, dealerships are by far the most reliable. Dealerships also have the ability to offer you warranties. If your vehicle's warranty is still active, you will often be able to get services for free. If your warranty has since expired, the dealership may still be able to offer warranty coverage on the repairs themselves, meaning if the repair fails, you will be able to have it repaired at no cost to you. When getting your vehicle serviced, you want to be confident you will receive the best service possible, which is something dealerships are consistent about.

Volvo Cars Have Maintained Their Reliability Over the Years

You can count on Volvo!

 


Proud Volvo owners will know the brand has maintained its reputation over the years. Our brand has constantly evolved in order to be as safe and technologically smart as possible. Let's take a closer look at how!


A History of Reliability and Innovation 

As far back as 1976, Volvos have been recognized as a top competitor in terms of safety. The brand was chosen as a benchmark for safety after a series of crash tests in the United States. In 2018, the first manufacturing plant in the U.S. opened in South Carolina. Not long after, in 2019, the brand introduced its first fully electric SUV. It is clear that innovation has always been an important aspect of Volvos.


Safety

Volvo has received recognition in the past for its safety features, and the brand has only continued to evolve these features. In the past few years, Volvo has introduced technology such as oncoming mitigation with braking, The E.V.A. (Equal Vehicles for All Initiative), and a speed cap.


Oncoming Mitigation By Braking - 2018

This is a unique Volvo feature. The system will help you automatically apply brakes when there is an oncoming vehicle in front of you. If a collision is unavoidable, it will help to reduce your speed and the force of the collision.


E.V.A. - 2019

Proving to be a reliable brand, Volvo has actually been collecting crash data since the 1970s. The E.V.A. initiative provides you with the research findings. This data is helpful to better understand what happens during a collision. Beyond that, it is particularly important because it is intentionally inclusive of men, women, and children. It is clear from the extensive research just how much the brand cares about your safety.


Speed Cap - 2020

In 2020, Volvo lowered the top speed in their new cars to 112 mph. Once again, this shows how the brand takes responsibility for assisting drivers to avoid traffic fatalities. While we know it is the responsibility of the driver to be safe and make good decisions, Volvos technology and active decisions provide additional tools to keep everyone safe.


Let's wrap up with a Guinness World Record. Did you know the car with the highest mileage ever recorded was a Volvo? The winning vehicle has over 3 million miles on it! That certainly says something about the lasting power Volvo vehicles have.


We strongly feel the Volvo brand is high quality and reliable. We also feel that gimmicks are unproductive. We want to help assist you, first and foremost, without any pressure. We don't believe in upselling or outsmarting our customers. Instead, we want you to experience for yourself just how reliable Volvos are. Stop by today, and we can help answer any questions you may have, as well as find the vehicles that best suit your lifestyle. Here at Keystone Volvo Doylestown, we want to ensure quality products and services. We hope that by visiting us for all of your car needs, you will feel the same.



Here Are the Main Benefits of Going Hybrid (As Shown By the Volvo S90 Recharge).

The S90 Offers Everything You Need! 



Hybrid work-life and hybrid cars are pretty popular these days. After all, we all want a way to get the best elements of each option. You don't need a fully electric car to be economical-a hybrid car is a great choice!


Hybrid cars are an investment. While purchasing a hybrid vehicle may be more expensive upfront, it can save you more money in the long run.


One of these reasons is there is less gas and oil needed, due to the nature of hybrid cars. While hybrid cars still use gas and oil, they don't use as much. This will save fossil fuels and money!

Plus, it means less maintenance is required, so your car will have a good range!


And unlike with regular electric vehicles, you don't have to worry about running out of charge. That's the beauty of the hybrid. When the charge runs out, it will simply switch to using the gas. Gas stations can be easier to come by than charging stations. This allows you to experience the benefits of an electric vehicle, without the stress limited charging stations can cause.


Why the 2022 Volvo S90 Recharge Is a Uniquely Awesome Hybrid Car


A great example of why hybrid cars are so cool is the 2022 Volvo S90 Recharge. In addition to the benefits you'd expect from a hybrid, the Volvo S90 Recharge has even more to offer.


The 2022 model offers an extended range, so one charge can take you even further.

With this hybrid, you have the power of choice-Pure Electric mode, hybrid mode, power mode, or constant AWD. Pure electric mode produces 0 tailpipe emissions, and is perfect for daily commutes, while hybrid mode uses the electric motor and an internal combustion engine. Power mode is recommended for faster response to acceleration and Constant AWD is used to improve traction.


One of the added perks of the S90 Recharge is how comfortable it is. In fact, while this may not be something you think about in terms of comfort, the S90 Recharge has it in spades: the cabin air. The Recharge will keep you breathing easily with an air cleaner that can remove up to 95% of certain hazardous PM 2.5 particles. In addition to extra-clean air, the Recharge provides a comfortable experience for those in the back seat, with ample leg room and nappa leather seats. If you need to store your things, or your pals, the Recharge will help you to do so comfortably.


As always with Volvo vehicles, it's incredibly safe. The blind spot information system, or the BLIS, assists with changing lanes. The BLIS will automatically and subtly adjust the steering if a collision risk arises. Other safety features include a 360-degree parking view and cross-traffic alert with autobrake. Volvo keeps safety as a top priority, and the S90 Recharge is no exception.


If that's not enough, there's plenty more! Additional features include a Swedish crystal gear shift-now, that's one way to add a flair!


Of course, these are not all of the reasons the Volvo S90 Recharge makes for a great vehicle. Visit us at Keystone Doylestown Volvo today to learn more!




Simple Tips to Keep Your Volvo Running Smoothly

Follow This Simple Guide to Keep Your Volvo Healthy and Happy!


If you've been driving a car for any amount of time, then it shouldn't surprise you to hear Volvos are incredibly reliable vehicles. Safety and reliability have been at the center of the Swedish automaker's brand since the very first ÖV4 models drove off the assembly line in 1927. That spirit continues to this day, as new Volvo cars consistently outlast and outperform their competitors, especially when it comes to safety. If you want to maximize the benefits of your new Volvo, here are a few simple tips to keep your Volvo running smoothly! 


Be Mindful Where You Park!


The location where you choose to park your new Volvo can have a significant impact on your vehicle's health, both in the short and long term. This is especially true if you live in an area with extreme temperatures. Hot summers and cold winters can damage a vehicle's systems, as can precipitation like rain or snow.


Simply put, if you're planning to leave your Volvo outside in the middle of a Doylestown winter, you should consider a different parking spot if possible. At the very least, look for a covered parking space; if not, an indoor garage.


Keep It Clean! 


We get it: most people don't like cleaning their cars. It's a task that often falls into the same category as doing laundry or dishes: necessary but inconvenient. There are significant benefits to keeping your car clean, both on the inside and outside.


Giving your new Volvo a consistent wash helps break up any dirt or particulates accumulating on the doors or underbelly. Over time, these particulates can cause serious damage, especially if they wear through a joint or pipe on your Volvo's underside. While crumbs and trash on the inside of your car might not have the same dramatic consequences, they can still gunk things up.


As an added bonus, you'll also be driving around in a clean car! It's hard not to appreciate the difference that makes, especially during a morning commute. Driving along Route 202 is stressful enough without having to brush off crumbs and juggle fast-food wrappers. 


Don't Slack on Service!


The good news is your new Volvo will likely need service a LOT less frequently than any comparable model from another brand. Of course, it's still a good idea to stick to your Volvo's service schedule to ensure everything runs smoothly.


Thankfully, it's not difficult as long as you keep in communication with your dealership. Your Volvo's internal systems will be able to notify you when things like oil changes pop up, and scheduling service is easy on your local Volvo dealership's website. Don't fret about buying expensive replacement parts or committing to elaborate at-home repairs either: Volvo's warranties are incredibly generous in covering routine services.


Software Updates Are Important, Too!


If we had to guess, people generally don't get very excited about software updates. Let's be honest with ourselves: we've all spent at least a month clicking Remind Me Later on a core computer update at some point or another. So, keeping your Volvo's internal software up-to-date is always a great idea to ensure your car is running smoothly. 


In the event you have a home internet connection, your Volvo should be able to update automatically. If you're running into issues, it's always a good idea to call your local Volvo dealership service center for assistance.


Thankfully, Volvo's cutting-edge engineering goes a long way towards ensuring a comfortable, reliable, and long-lasting driving experience. As long as you give your new Volvo the care and consideration it needs, it'll happily serve you for years to come!



Must-Ask Questions for Buying a Pre-Owned Car


If you shop smart, then getting a pre-owned car can be an awesome way to get premium-quality vehicles for lower prices! Although the term "used car" might conjure images of sleazy back-alley dealership lots, the reality is that many used cars offer a reliable driving experience for a solid value-especially if you shop at your local Volvo dealership! 


As with all things related to car shopping, showing up prepared is a good idea. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when you shop for a pre-owned Volvo car! 


Do Your Research

Before you deal with particulars like financing and insurance, it's a good idea to know what kind of vehicle you want. This may sound obvious, but it can be a common pitfall for first-time car buyers.


As many people associate shopping for pre-owned vehicles with making cost-cutting decisions, it can be easy for conversations about used cars to get entirely wrapped up in budget. It's a good idea to show up to the lot with a better idea of what you're looking for than just a price tag. 


Are you looking for a reliable commuter car? Do you want something you can take to the mountains? How many passengers do you plan on driving? Visiting the dealership with a firm understanding of what you want to get out of a car is the single most important thing to do if you want to maximize the value you get from shopping pre-owned. 


Do Some Research Into Your Car's History

After you've done your first round of research, it's time to do another round. You should be prepared to hit the books if you want to get the best possible car for your price range.


Once you've narrowed down your search to a couple of different vehicles, it's a good idea to compile some information on their histories. Getting a vehicle history report is generally one of the fastest ways to fill out the info you need, but it still contains a lot of individual parts. A complete timeline of used car history should contain a record of previous owners, documentation of any previous accidents, as well as any topical insurance information and a list of registrations.


Of course, if you want to skip some of these steps, you can always consider shopping for a Certified By Volvo Pre-Owned Car.


What's a Certified By Volvo Pre-Owned Car? 


If you want to shop for new-quality Volvo vehicles from recent model years, then browsing a Certified by Volvo Pre-Owned Car is a great way to save money. This designation is selectively awarded to certain used Volvos from recent years that meet strict criteria. In addition, each one is required to pass a rigorous inspection before it can be listed. Cars are also only eligible if they have a complete ownership timeline, meaning drivers shouldn't expect any insurance surprises.

Simply put, if you want to shop for a pre-owned car, ask about the Certified by Volvo Pre-Owned inventory when you visit the dealership.

Interior Perfection: The 2021 Volvo XC40 


Although it might not hang out in painting galleries, the 2022 Volvo XC40 is a piece of art. This vehicle is the latest iteration in Volvo's masterclass SUV lineup, and it's hard not to appreciate the ways in which it absolutely transforms the driving experience. 


Given that the 2022 Volvo XC40's MSRP is JUST $35,195, it represents the perfect point of entry for drivers who feel ready to graduate to luxury SUVs. Don't be fooled by the vehicle's spacious interior either; drivers can look forward to 30MPG thanks to the Volvo XC40!


Of course, these are benefits you can learn by just reading the 2022 Volvo XC40's info sheet. What really sets the XC40 apart from the competition is its world-class interior.


Let's take a look!


New Look. Clean Finish. Same Volvo Sophistication. 


True to its heritage, the XC40 is an absolute titan on the road. Its robust all-wheel-drive system can produce a reliable 248 horsepower while delivering top-line handling. Of course, you wouldn't be able to tell that the XC40 is so fearsome under the hood because its interior has been carefully crafted to muffle road noise and provide a stress-free driving ambiance. 


Did we mention that it has a customizable leather interior?  Because it does.


If you want luxury that can get the job done, it's hard not to appreciate this SUV. 


Don't Forget the Tech


You'll appreciate the XC40's tech before you even open the door. Literally! Volvo's smart key system allows for flexible keyless entry and remote starts. Even better, it allows you to customize which keys are able to start your car, providing peace of mind that it can't be driven without your authorization.


Of course, all of the other tech classics are here: smart system infotainment, integration with Android Auto (and Apple Carplay!), along with a customizable dashboard display! Of particular note is the vehicle's safety system, which includes a sophisticated suite of features like a dynamic back-up camera and real-time parking assistance. 


Seating 


We mentioned earlier the 2022 Volvo XC40 features a made-to-measure leather interior. It's worth appreciating just how much leather that is! This vehicle boasts an absolutely palatial 95 cubic feet of passenger space-which is more than some vans offer. Not bad for a 5-seat vehicle! 


Naturally, all of this sprawling, comfortable space makes it perfect for both families and hobbyists on the go. It doesn't matter whether you're navigating a Little League commute or a winding mountain path, the XC40 is absolutely one of the most comfortable ways to experience the road. Of course, the trunk size isn't anything to scoff at either. 


There are plenty more reasons to love the 2022 Volvo XC40 beyond its luxurious interior! Don't just take our word for it, however! Visit Keystone Volvo in Doylestown today to schedule a test drive!

The 2022 Volvo XC40: Luxury Redefined

Meet the SUV That's Changing the Conversation


 

There's a lot to love about Volvo's smallest SUV. Since first driving off the assembly line in 2018, this compact luxury SUV represents an affordable, accessible point of entry into the world of luxury vehicle ownership for drivers of all walks of life. 


A lot goes into earning a luxury designation. As there are no official guidelines for what counts, luxury is one of those "you'll know it when you see it" sorts of things. If you've ever been behind the wheel of a new Volvo XC40, you'll know exactly what we're talking about! 


If you haven't had the privilege yet, or you still need more convincing, let's explore the features that make the XC40 such a universally beloved luxury ride. 


One Word: Space


It's hard to appreciate the difference that having enough space makes in a car until you run out of it. No matter how sophisticated a vehicle's technology is, nobody is going to enjoy a ride that feels like cramming into the middle seat of an airplane's coach section. 


The passenger area of the Volvo XC40's cabin is absolutely spacious. With over 95 cubic feet of passenger volume, a single person effectively has a full sedan interior worth of legroom. On its own, this would already be an incredible amount of space, but this number comes before you factor in all of the cabin's designated storage! 


In fact, the XC40 features a variety of innovative cargo options that are designed to turn every square inch of the car's interior paneling into discreet storage solutions. 


Centralized Infotainment Is a Game-Changer


Until you get behind the wheel of a luxury vehicle like the Volvo XC40, it's difficult to appreciate how much of your attention while driving is eaten up by just hunting down buttons and switches. From endlessly adjusting the Spotify playlist to checking navigation on your phone, it can be hard to appreciate a drive when your attention is so divided. 


The Volvo XC40's intuitive infotainment system centralizes countless different car functions into a single easy-to-use touchscreen. Combined with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, this infotainment console allows a seamless continuity for your digital media throughout the day. Using this system, you'll be able to start a podcast on your phone, continue it in your car, effortlessly switch to navigation, and then resume it when you get home. 


Once You've Experienced Autonomous Driving, You'll Never Want to Go Back


It's amazing how a feature like AI-assisted driving-once considered to be purely in the sci-fi realm of possibility-is now a feature available to Volvo drivers! While Volvo's suite of driver assistance features isn't a complete substitute for attentive driving, they're convenient and luxurious enough to completely change the way you view both commutes and long-distance drives. 


In addition, Volvo's assisted driving comes with a suite of safety upgrades designed to minimize accident risk by providing drivers with an exceptional degree of control and awareness on the road. Chief among these features is an automated emergency braking system that's able to detect pedestrians and animals-even at night time! Drivers can also look forward to a lane-keeping assist feature that provides departure warnings!


While these might be some of the main reasons to love the 2022 Volvo XC40, they're hardly the only ones! Everything we mentioned in the article just covers features that can be found in the cabin. We haven't even started on the sheer muscle that's waiting under the hood! If you want even more reasons why the 2022 Volvo XC40 will transform the way you view driving, visit Keystone Volvo in Doylestown today!




Winter Is Coming. Make Sure Your Volvo Is Ready

There are several steps you can take to properly winterize your Volvo.


 


We get it: thinking about winter when there's still a few weeks left of autumn can feel pretty depressing. That said, winter can come pretty quickly in Doylestown, PA, so you'll want to make sure your new Volvo is ready for the snow. Winterizing your vehicle doesn't have to be some grand maintenance overhaul, though. It just means making sure your Volvo's various systems are as prepared as possible for any difficult weather that may come.


Check Your Fluids-ALL of Them!


Your car has more fluid systems than you might think, which is why it's important to check all of them.


First and foremost, check your Volvo's oil, especially if you've driven at least 8,000 miles since your last oil change. Cold weather can cause your vehicle's oil to flow slower, which increases the risk for a breakdown.


Next up, you'll want to check your car's coolant fluid levels. Check to make sure the fluid is between the Fill line and the Add line. While "coolant" might not seem like a priority during winter, this system is responsible for keeping your engine's temperature stable-and heating your cabin!


Finally, you'll want to check your vehicle's windshield wiper fluid. This is a super useful tool to keep rain, snow, and sleet from sticking to your windshield.


You Don't Want to Get Caught in the Snow With a Dead Battery!

Battery failures are responsible for the majority of AAA roadside calls. Car batteries often don't show signs of age until they're on the brink of failure, so be proactive about your battery's health.


Most car batteries will last about three years-so if your battery is older than two years old, you should bring it into your Volvo dealership service center to get tested as soon as possible. Exposure to extreme temperatures, particularly cold weather, can lessen a battery's lifespan.


Don't Forget Your Tires! 


Thankfully, driving in Doylestown, PA, doesn't mean dealing with too many blizzards, but it's still a good idea to make sure your tires are up to the task. Beyond snow, there's plenty of slush, sleet, and ice to contend with during the winter months. 


When you check your Volvo's fluids, you should also take a second to check the wear bar on your tires. This is a small rubber bar that's set in the very back of the tires' grooves in order to measure how worn down the tires are. If the bar is unevenly worn, that could signify issues with your vehicle's alignment as well as tire pressure. Meanwhile, a completely worn-down bar indicates it's time to replace your tires.


By taking a few basic steps to winterize your Volvo, you can save yourself a major headache once the weather gets colder. If you have any questions about the unique needs of your Volvo car-or want to schedule a Volvo winterization service-visit Keystone Volvo in Doylestown today!




Is Now the Time to Buy a New Volvo?

Between an Awesome Lineup and Amazing Incentives, There's Never Been a Better Time for a New Volvo.


 


Is now the time to buy a new Volvo? Spoiler alert: yes. 


Whether you're a diehard fanatic or a newcomer to the brand, there's a lot to be excited about in Volvo's 2021 and 2022 lineups. Between a host of cutting-edge features becoming standard across a variety of cars, breakthroughs in electric vehicle engineering, and new ways to get behind the wheel of a new car, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better time to upgrade. 


Let's take a look at some of the many, many reasons why 2021 is such an awesome time to buy a new Volvo car, starting with: 


Going Full Electric Has Never Looked Better


Although there was a lot of consumer enthusiasm for pure-electric cars in the 2010s, drivers were consistent with the options available. While electric cars from brands like Tesla delivered effective electric motors, their expensive price tags and awkward rollout of features turned off many would-be drivers. Likewise, even successful electric vehicles, like Mitsubishi's Outlander PHEV didn't offer full electric motors, and instead assumed that drivers would carefully budget their charges to fit all of their weekly commutes into the vehicle's limited electric range.


Now that Volvo has arrived on the e-mobility scene with cars like the 2022 Volvo C40 and the 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge, the conversation is changing. These two vehicles represent an affordable, intuitive way to make the switch to electric driving-while getting an amazing vehicle in the process! 


Both cars offer a 200+ mile driving range on a battery that can be charged in under an hour. Of course, this pivot to electric power doesn't mean that Volvo has made any compromises in power or performance. In fact, the XC40 Recharge can easily accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.7 seconds. 


You read that correctly. Even a year ago, these kinds of numbers on a luxury SUV would feel like something out of a sci-fi series. Today, they're standard expectations for new Volvo cars. 


Here's What's Now Considered Standard


Speaking of "standard expectations for new Volvo cars," the list of features that are now considered standard across most Volvo trims reads like something you'd send to Santa.


At the front of these upgrades is Volvo's new Connected Safety services, which allow nearby Volvo cars to communicate with each other to warn of hazardous road conditions or obstructions. From surprise snowstorms to vehicles with hazard lights, drivers won't need to worry about being caught off guard by rapidly changing road conditions again! 


Beyond that, every new Volvo car comes standard with blind-spot warnings, rear cross-traffic warning systems, and adaptive headlights that feature automatic high-beam adjustment. As an added bonus, drivers can also look forward to power-folding side mirrors and even standard USB power outlets for every seat


Remember: this list doesn't include features that are attached to higher trims. All of these amazing new features are included in your new Volvo at no extra cost! 


Care By Volvo = New Cars at Used Car Prices


If you're looking for additional ways to enjoy Volvo's cutting-edge engineering without having to pay sticker price, then there's never been a better time to take advantage of the Care by Volvo platform. 


Simply put, Care by Volvo offers drivers an affordable way to get behind the wheel of a new Volvo car without having to worry about the hassle of navigating a lease. For a single monthly payment, drivers get the keys to new Volvo models, along with insurance coverage, maintenance coverage, AND a suite of extra protections. 


Best of all, the service offers plenty of flexibility to cancel or adjust after five months, meaning that you're free to upgrade to an even newer Volvo model! The lack of a long-term contract means that drivers of all walks of life can find incredible value in this service. 


Of course, there's another central reason to buy a new Volvo car this year, and that's that new Volvo cars are fantastic! If you want even more reasons to fall in love with this incredible brand, then swing by Keystone Volvo in Doylestown today to schedule a test drive!




What Are the Most Family-Friendly Volvo Cars?

Shopping for a New Volvo Car? Here Are the Ones That Are Best for Your Whole Family!


 


Not all cars are created equal. If you've ever tried to transport science fair projects or little league players in the back of a cramped sedan, you'll know that there's a big difference between a regular car and a family-friendly one. Having the right mix of space, infotainment, and features goes a long way towards keeping your family driving stress-free. 


Thankfully, Volvo has plenty of amazing options for family cars! Whether you're a first-time parent or an expert little league wrangler, here are our top picks:


The 2021 Volvo XC60 


At the top of our list is a new Volvo car that expertly combines luxury with sustainability. The 2021 Volvo XC60 is an especially awesome vehicle for the parents of teenage drivers, as it's both easy to use and features PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) options. 


Plug-in hybrid cars are especially popular for the parents of teenage drivers because of how easily the vehicle's charge can cover weekend, afterschool, or practice driving. The vehicle's fast charge means that you won't have to fret about paying for gas, and your teenager won't have to navigate any accident-prone gas stations as a result! 


In addition, the 2021 Volvo XC60 comes with a suite of sophisticated safety features that includes adaptive braking, lane-keeping assist, and collision avoidance systems. This means that parents can hand off the keys knowing that their teenagers are protected by some of the most advanced safety engineering available. 


As an added bonus, Volvo cars hold their value for a long time-and the XC60 is no exception! This means that parents can eventually retire their new 2021 XC60 by sending it off with the kids to college, knowing that this vehicle will continue to be safe, intuitive, and comfortable well into their teenager's adult life.


The 2021 Volvo XC40


While the XC40 doesn't quite have the same body size as the small and mid-size SUVs on this list, it's an intuitive, luxury vehicle that's excellent for new families. 


This new Volvo car is designed to emphasize driver comfort and accessibility-two bonuses that can make a huge difference when you're navigating the new stresses of parenthood. Across this vehicle's feature list are countless small tweaks that have been made to maximize the quality of life for everyone in the car, drivers, and passengers alike. 


One of the first things that drivers will notice is the XC40's plush chairs that are designed to accommodate relaxing postures while also offering plenty of legroom and headroom! The driver's terminal is also optimized to streamline interactions while minimizing disruptions, something that's especially important if you've got a baby in the backseat! 


In addition, drivers benefit from adaptive lighting, hands-free liftgates, and flexible climate-control options. Even if you're running on 3 hours of sleep, it's hard not to appreciate the difference that this luxury makes. 


The 2021 Volvo XC90


Parents Magazine has recognized this midsize SUV as one of the best available Family Cars, and we're not about to disagree! The fact that this vehicle can stand out at the front of their yearly evaluations of more than 50 cars says a lot about how awesome it is for families on the go!


There's a certain intuitive luxury to the 2021 Volvo XC90 that becomes apparent from the moment that you first open its doors. The vehicle's uniquely sleek Scandinavian aesthetics also includes enough space to comfortably seat seven passengers-meaning that everyone can enjoy the space without sacrificing any. 


In addition, the 2021 Volvo XC90 boasts incredible safety ratings. It earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS, along with a 5-Star Safety Rating from the NHTSA. Both of these accolades speak for themselves. 


One of the biggest incentives to a family vehicle is the peace of mind that everyone inside is protected, and that's challenging to put a price on. The 2021 Volvo XC90 boasts this in spades, making it an excellent choice for families of all shapes and sizes.
