Volvo may have a small range but each new model is a jewel in their crown with another quality offering in the form of the Volvo XC40. The preceding XC60 and XC90 SUVs have won praise and accolades from all quarters and it’d be no surprise if this smaller version follows suit. I really enjoyed my week in the Volvo [...]

Luckily all was well above the pits in the private boxes. As I sipped on my second-ish glass of Pommery’s, and sampled my third-ish canapé, I asked [...]

What do these symbols have in common? Balls of course. The one on the left is the famous Volvo nameplate. Volvo (meaning “I Roll” in Latin) was the name of a Swedish ball bearing factory in the early 20th century. The one on the right is the Male symbol and…. well you get the idea. Volvo has undergone no end [...]
