Five Reasons a Volvo Makes a Great Winter Car

We are on the cusp of a minor revolution at Volvo. A set of new Drive-E powertrains, updated models and all-new offerings are almost here. Despite the new technology, increased efficiency and updated styling, one key pillar of Volvo will remain: safety.

And we don’t just mean from a crash-safety standpoint either. Volvos are designed to help the driver avoid an accident as much as survive one. So it should come as no surprise that a manufacturer hailing from a Scandinavian country would know a thing or two about winter safety. More than that, Volvos seem to just laugh off treacherous, miserable winter conditions in a way many other vehicles cannot. Here are five reasons why.

  • Herb Simpson

    Volvo impresses with its tech and styling, and surprises with performance. You’d think they would sell a bit better than they do.

  • Rickers

    Agreed. I think they need a wow product to get people talking. Maybe a sports car or a true luxury sedan… like the S-Class?

  • Merc1

    I really like these new Volvos. They are great winter cars too for those very reasons, I know because I’ve had OTHER cars that did the opposite of what the Volvo did here.
