Volvo : awards that don’t lie
The average consumer may easily come to the conclusion that the cars he sees more frequently on the road are probably the best.

The average consumer may easily come to the conclusion that the cars he sees more frequently on the road are probably the best. Although this rule of thumb has some merits, it doesn’t point out that there are some vehicles less frequently seen in our streets despite their superior quality compared to what the competition has to offer. Volvos are in this situation and they cumulate prizes, distinctions and badges of excellence. You only have to go try one at Volvo Laval, your Volvo dealership on the North Shore, to assess the credibility of this recognition.

According to the experts

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, maybe, but when countless experts reach a consensus on specific models, it becomes reasonable to consider them to be the best of the best. Automobile Journalists Association of Canada has given the Volvo S90/V90 the big luxury car of the year award, the Volvo XC60 the small luxury car of the year award and the Volvo XC90 the luxury SUV of the year award. Is that because of the unexplainable bias of this Canadian organization for a Swedish manufacturer? Autotrader.ca gathered other experts’ opinions and they reached similar conclusion by making the Volvo XC90 their top pick… for another year. Another specialized website, AutoGuide.com, confirmed AJAC’s opinion on the XC60 and gave the Volvo S90/V90 the best design of the year award. Denying Volvo vehicles’ superior quality and luxury would be stubbornness, at this point…

Beyond the looks

Volvo cars also distinguish themselves on another aspect that represents one of the main focus of the manufacturer since the beginning: safety. The European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) gave a near-perfect score (the highest ever granted by this organization) to the Volvo XC60 on this aspect. This luxurious SUV is now the new safest car in the world, replacing… the Volvo XC90.

The fact that you’re not seeing Volvo vehicles every time you turn around a corner doesn’t reflect on their quality, reliability and safety. When you ask those who know what they’re talking about, they give answers similar to what you just read. Go for the best of the best yourself by paying a visit to Volvo Laval, your Laval car dealer on the North Shore.
