The Volvo Ocean Race Commences In 2017

The Volvo Ocean Race is known for being the toughest, longest, most prestigious sporting event in the world.  Over 45,000 nautical miles are traveled at sea in the 9-month race to victory. 

Last month, Volvo announced the 2017-2018 Volvo Ocean Race route.  Many believe it is the toughest route in the 43-year history of the race. Four oceans will be crossed to take in 11 major cities on five continents. “This year, around 12,500 nautical miles of the race will be in the Southern Ocean, the fast-moving, ice cold waters around the Antarctic where, unhindered by land, some of the deepest weather depressions generate giant waves and heavy winds that can peak over 130 km/h,” Volvo Cars’ official press release states.
How does this strenuous sailing race relate to Volvo Cars? President and chief executive of Volvo Cars, Hakan Samuelsson simply states, “The Volvo Ocean Race is tough and prestigious. So are we.” Volvo Cars acquired the competition in 1997, linking its own tradition of engineering prowess, design and team work to the world’s most arduous and venerated sailing race.
The Volvo Ocean Race will begin in late 2017 and will continue until the first team crosses the finish line in the Netherlands.  To learn more about the Volvo Ocean Race or to view the 2017-2018 route, read the official Volvo Cars Press Release here.

S90 Reviews Are Rolling In

Making its debut one year after the award-winning 2016 Volvo XC90 launch, the S90 sedan has been receiving a lot of attention by car enthusiasts around the world.  Online reviewers are in agreement--the all-new 2017 Volvo S90 is an inspiring, luxurious, one-of-a-kind sedan.

Here is a collection of recent S90 online reviews:

“This new Volvo sedan is a luxury car, a genuinely credible alternative to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, and Audi A6. Oh, and Jaguar XF and Lexus GS, too... The S90 quietly blazes its own trail in everything from design to powertrain to the way it rides and handles. On first acquaintance the Volvo S90 is a uniquely appealing luxury sedan, and not just because it’s different, but because it’s good at being different.”” –Motor Trend
"It’s clear that Volvo hasn’t been restrained by expectations of what the S90 should be. That’s resulted in a genuinely stylish, different, and rather enchanting new sedan." -Motor Authority
"The S90 was clearly conceived in a Scandinavian design house rather than a German studio. This is not a flashy car. Rather, the S90 presents an understated and elegant appearance." -DigitalTrends.com

"The S90’s Pilot Assist system is remarkable in operation." -Wards Auto
"The all-new 2017 Volvo S90 offers sleek but understated Scandinavian style and comfort, the latest driver assists, and one of the best infotainment interfaces in the midsize luxury sedan segment." -PC Magazine

The 2017 S90 arrives at Lehman Volvo Cars at the end of this month.  Want more information on the all-new S90?  Visit LehmanVolvoYork.com or LehmanVolvo.com.  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay current with Volvo news!

Motor Trend Volvo S90 First Review

The All-New Volvo S90 reviews are rolling in and they are nothing short of amazing.  Motor Trend published their first S90 drive review on June 3rd titled, “Look out Germany, Here Comes Sweden.”
Motor Trend writer, Angus Mackenzie, makes it clear that the Volvo S90 is in-fact a competitive luxury sedan.  “This new Volvo sedan is a luxury car, a genuinely credible alternative to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, and Audi A6. Oh, and Jaguar XF and Lexus GS, too.”
Exterior--Motor Trend Review:
“That confidence and elegance is reinforced by taut exterior surfaces and a handful of crisply defined character lines. The C-pillar rakes dramatically down to the trunk, stretching the greenhouse and visually reducing the height of the roof, giving this three-box sedan an almost coupe-like profile. The concave vertical elements of the bold grille are a subtle homage to the 1972 Volvo P1800’s front end, and dramatically geometric taillights emphasize the S90’s width.”
 

Interior--Motor Trend Review:
“The interior design is an evolution of themes seen in the XC90, with calm, structured forms and authentic materials… There’s a noticeable lack of switchgear, as most functions, including navigation, audio, climate control, and vehicle settings, are controlled by the 9-inch, portrait-format touchscreen at the center of the dash.”
 

The Drive--Motor Trend Review:
“You hardly notice the engine’s there at all. Wind noise is also commendably low—even with big wheels and tires, the S90’s drag coefficient is less than 0.30. But what impresses most is the lack of tire noise and impact harshness from the suspension along with the deft control of secondary body motions.”

Motor Trend’s glowing endorsement for the S90 could not have come at a more perfect time.  The all-new S90 demos arrive next month at Lehman Volvo Cars.  To learn more, visit LehmanVolvo.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
