How strong is your car?

Volvo has a stand at the National Boat, Caravan and Outdoor Show this month to display the towing ability of its models.

A free guide to all the capabilities of the models, and their engine derivatives can be collected from the stand, as well as the chance to enter a competition for a family holiday.

Shirley Robertson, double Olympic gold medallist and member of ‘Team Volvo’, uses her Volvo XC90 to tow her one tonne boat all over the world, and praises the stowage space for transporting her kit. She says: "It’s great to have the reliability and towing power without losing the performance of the car, but the best thing is the comfort factor – even after a long trip I still feel human."

Volvo models often receive praise from caravan owners. The Volvo V50 D5 sport holds the title of Caravan Club overall towcar of the year, as well as the Volvo V70 D5 SE being a winner at the first ever Towcar Awards, where experts at Practical Caravan, What Car? and The Camping & Caravanning Club all collaborated to choose the best vehicles.
