Volvo is a Sweden concern that produces commercial vehicles, buses, engines and other equipment. The original company was founded in 1927. In 2009 Volvo cars brand was sold to Ford Motor Company and a year later Ford sold he brand to Zheijang Geely Holding Group, which is Chinese vehicle manufacturing company that also sells vehicles under such brand names as Emgrand, Englon, Geely, and Gleagle. Thereby, Volvo has turned into an Asian brand after over 70 years of European and 10 years of American history. Nowadays Volvo is ready to offer four models of luxury cars (C and S series) and three models of SUVs (XC series). Let’s take a look at the most affordable one, Volvo C30, which is starting at $25,500. This car comes with a turbocharged 5-cylinder engine with 227 horsepower, 6-speed manual or 5-speed Geratronic Automatic Transmission, 650-watts 1st class sound system with a Dolby Digital technology (10 built-in speakers will deliver you the greatest sound quality possible) and all kinds of safety features including systems with 5-6 letters long abbreviations that won’t tell you much about the vehicle but will make it seem cool. Basically, all you need to know that it is a really safe car that really nice and it can really drive fast despite the stereotype of ‘Made in China’ label. As a proof of that fact it was rewarded 2011 Best Overall Premium Sporty/Coupe Class by IntelliChoice and Top Safety Pick: Midsize cars of 2012 by IIHS. Volvo cars have a rather great history, throughout which they’ve been producing cars of great quality with impressive characteristics. Fortunately, Geely company seems to be a worthy successor.
