Volvo car finance

So, you are thinking about buying a Volvo? Good for you, since many other drivers do too. Here at Carfinance247 we aim to provide what it takes for you to buy the Volvo of your choice.

We have suggested below a few of the current models you might want to take a look at – but first a word about Volvo’s history.

Amazingly, given Sweden’s savage winters, the first Volvo of 1927 was an open top car. It didn’t take long for a covered version to appear. Volvo built its brand reputation on solid engineering and constantly pushing for better driving safety. In fact, in the ‘70s the US Traffic Safety Administration actually used the Volvo 240 as a benchmark for Federal auto safety standards.

Running Costs

Volvo car insurance is not cheap with the small C30 falling into group 21 insurance band, but Volvo redeems itself well with its emissions figures, which are mostly extremely good for their class. All new Volvo's come with a three year warranty and servicing schedule of 18,000 miles. Main dealer servicing and parts costs can be quite pricey but Volvo's are known for their reliability so this is rarely a major issue.

Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 can seat seven people, has all-wheel drive and an anti-skid system. It is reputed to be one of the safest SUVs in production

It is attention to detail, build quality and safety consciousness that helps mark out the Volvo generally and the XC90 in particular. Hence:

  • enhanced safety is achieved through better vision thanks to the wrap around windscreen and the in-built anti-skid system;
  • four-wheel drive ensures that the foulest of weather need never delay or cancel your journey;
  • the expansive rear storage bay may be made even more useful with a pack and load accessory kit.

For what is often regarded as one of the safest SUVs on the road you may only need pay around £20,000 for a 2012 Volvo XC90 – which equates to Carfinance247 terms of £381.67 a month over 60 months with no deposit and based on an excellent credit history.

Volvo C30

The Volvo C30 is a three-door hatchback produced from 2007 until 2013. During that time it was widely considered one of the best-looking luxury hatchbacks on the market.

What this means, of course, is that the Volvo C30 continues to prove a highly desirable second hand vehicle.

Just how much you may need to pay of course depends on the age and condition of your chosen vehicle. Some of the later models in good condition are currently fetching around £10,000 – which could be financed through payments of £230.70 a month over 60 months with no deposit and a fair credit history.

Volvo S40

The Volvo S40 was a popular saloon produced between 2004 and 2012. Its principal features and attractions during those years were:

  • the distinctively Swedish approach to styling and design;
  • build quality; and
  • reliability.

These remain very good reasons for searching out a second hand Volvo S40 to buy. How much you will need to pay of course depends on the age and condition of the example you find.

Models in good condition from about the year 2009, for example, currently command a price in the region of £8,000 – a sum which you could finance through 48 monthly payments of £192.69 with a £300 deposit and a good credit history.

Whether you are in the market to buy a spanking new Volvo or a second hand one that continues to hold its price, Carfinance247 is here to try and help you complete the purchase – why not get in touch now?
