Europcar has added the new Volvo V60 to its UK fleet of Model Choice[i] vehicles, giving business and leisure travellers access to the latest automotive technology combined with flexible space that will accommodate family, colleagues, luggage and more. The first rental brand to adopt the luxury estate, the V60 is available to hire now through Europcar, combining Scandinavian design with smart technology.

Five supportive seats means comfort for all and the electrically operated boot opens to reveal 529 litres of space – 1,441 with the rear seats down! This makes it the biggest in the mid-size premium estate class. Passengers also benefit from extra space as the V60’s wheelbase is 10cm longer than its predecessor’s. This translates into extra legroom front and back, ensuring that whether it’s a long business drive or a road trip with the family, passengers stay as comfortable as possible.

Swedish, stylish and sharp, the new V60 hasn’t forgotten the S that defines its heritage: safety. Businesses and families alike can keep moving forward safely, with all of the V60s on Europcar’s fleet featuring Volvo’s intelligent City Safety suite of active and preventative safety systems. These include automatic emergency braking, which can detect vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and large animals in front of the vehicle.

Gary Smith, Managing Director of Europcar Mobility Group in the UK, comments:  “The Volvo V60 offers Europcar customers the best of both worlds. It brings style and safety alongside luxury and practicality. And it is spacious enough for all the family’s luggage while also being premium enough for transporting colleagues or clients.

“Volvo has grown into one of the most desired premium brands in the UK. At Europcar Mobility Group we are committed to constantly reviewing our fleet, ensuring our customers have access to the best mobility solutions for their needs. The V60 shows our commitment to this and is sure to be a popular addition to the fleet.”

Steve Beattie, Head of Business Sales, Volvo Car UK, commented “Our latest estate underlines the transformation of the Volvo brand: it boasts premium Scandinavian design, industry-leading safety and connectivity technologies, and class-leading luggage space. As appropriate for families enjoying a long weekend away as it is for business drivers, our V60 lets motorists get the most out of every moment.”
