Your re­gional Volvo spe­cial­ist just keeps get­ting bet­ter

The Oban Times - - DRIVING FORCE -

As Volvo Car UK cel­e­brates its best sales per­for­mance in 25 years and re­ceives even more safety ac­co­lades for the new S90 and V90 mod­els from Euro NCAP, Perth-based Strath­more pre­pares for an­other ex­cit­ing year with the Swedish man­u­fac­turer.

While it may oc­cupy the same kerb space as any medium-sized 4x4, and pop­u­lar with Perth lo­cals, the Volvo XC60’s dy­namic looks al­low it to stand out from the crowd. From the side it re­sem­bles a sporty es­tate car but still boasts the com­mand­ing driv­ing po­si­tion and functionality of its class ri­vals.

Volvo’s ca­pa­ble XC60 is avail­able with two five- cylinder en­gines and the D4 from the four- cylinder Drive-E pow­er­train fam­ily. Avail­able in both man­ual and au­to­matic to help con­trib­ute to a re­fined drive and ex­cel­lent fuel econ­omy.

For those look­ing for some­thing smaller, but by no means less impressive, the newly-facelifted Volvo V40 now comes equipped as stan­dard with Drive-E pow- er­trains – of­fer­ing a world- class blend of driv­abil­ity and low CO2 emis­sions.

Strath­more’s di­rec­tor, Norman Leish­man, com­ments: ‘The V40, XC60 and the impressive XC90 have all be­come hugely pop­u­lar with lo­cal Perth mo­torists and the de­mand for these mod­els con­tin­ues to re­main strong.

‘ We’re con­fi­dent that the lat­est mod­els to ar­rive at the deal­er­ship, par­tic­u­larly the V90 es­tate and its Cross Coun­try vari­ant, will be just as suc­cess­ful with our cus­tomers thanks to their in­no­va­tive safety, tech­no­log­i­cal and per­for­mance cre­den­tials.’

Look­ing ahead to the next year, Strath­more is set to go through Volvo’s cor­po­rate show­room up­grades to en­hance the cus­tomer re­tail ex­pe­ri­ence. The new lay­out will of­fer more space, with large exterior and in­te­rior glaz­ing and a fo­cus on phys­i­cal and dig­i­tal pre­sen­ta­tion, as well as in­te­grat­ing sales and ser­vice areas to de­liver an open and friendly en­vi­ron­ment and mak­ing the whole ex­pe­ri­ence based around open­ness.
