VOLVO CAR RENTAL WITH AVIS
Safeguard your journey with an Avis Volvo car rental
Volvo’s safety credentials have long been admired the world over and they remain the envy of many other manufacturers. Furthermore, the Swedish brand’s long-held reputation for being ‘boxy but dependable’ has become a distant memory as Volvo is now renowned for its engineering integrity, technical innovation, shapely exteriors and stunning interior design. You can experience all this for yourself when you choose Volvo car hire from Avis
Whether you need a sleek, efficient and well-equipped family hatchback or a practical and equally stylish all-wheel-drive crossover from our Prestige 4x4 range, Avis has the Volvo for you.
More than you need, all that you want
All Volvo V40s come with a host of advanced safety features including curtain airbags, a pedestrian airbag and Volvo’s City Safety auto braking system. The Inscription variant available for hire also features heated leather seats, a colour TFT display with satnav, parking sensors, cruise control and more.
The mid-sized and XC60 SUV features adaptive cruise control with Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving, Distance Alert, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and heated wiper blades along with a long list of other cutting-edge safety tech. Inside there’s Volvo’s Sensus touchscreen display and up to 1,455 litres of loadspace with a powered tailgate. And if you’ve not driven a contemporary Volvo before, you’ll be taken aback by the superb fit, finish and feel of all the materials.
Volvo’s seven-seater XC90 is the embodiment of modern Swedish luxury. You’ll be seated on fine nappa leather upholstery and surrounded by exquisite walnut finishes, while the T8 Inscription Pro twin-engine petrol hybrid powerplant can deliver a whopping 390hp via its sophisticated 8-speed auto transmission and AWD drivetrain.
Volvo car hire: a safe bet
That Volvos look terrific both inside and out is now a given, but the Gothenburg maker has also been outstandingly inventive, especially in terms of safety.
You may know, for example, that in 1959 Volvo was the first to introduce the three-point safety belt, making it standard on Amazon and PV544 models from 1959. But you may not know that the 1944 Volvo PV444 was the first car with a laminated windscreen, or that the first rear-facing child seat followed in 1967. Additionally, 1976 saw the first three-way catalytic converter, 1979 the first wide-angle rear-view mirror and 1990 the first integrated child booster cushion, all from Volvo.
In 1991 the Volvo 850 was the first car with a side impact protection system, and since then Volvo has also been first to introduce auto seat belt adjustment, curtain airbags and rear-facing ISOFIX child seat fitting. And that’s not to mention the first Ambient Air Cleaner, Blind Spot Info, Intelligent Driver Info, Driver Alert and factory-fitted SOS systems. In this decade we’ve seen the first diesel hybrid plug-in model (the 2011 Volvo V60) as well as the pedestrian airbag and the cyclist detection system with full auto brake.
Still more recently Volvo has come up with a diverse assortment of further developments including the first ‘outside air’ hi-fi subwoofer, intersection auto braking and running off road prevention technology, and the first integrated parking application.
Much of this ground-breaking innovation will naturally be incorporated in your latest-spec Avis Volvo V40, XC60 or XC90 hire car, so you’ll be sure to arrive in style with ‘relaxed confidence’.
