The smooth ride comes from the engine’s nature but also from the 12-speed Volvo I-Shift gearbox. It’s a genuine Volvo development and it’s designed to fully comply with the character of our engines. Rapid gear-changing, electronically controlled and especially adapted to coach touring. The control software is optimised for high average speed, low fuel consumption and fewer gear changes, which gives increased cruising comfort, extended mechanical lifetime and reduced emissions.
Long service life
A Volvo is built to last. The service intervals are long, due to the durability of the mechanical design. For example, the rear axle does not need attention until after 400,000 km on the road.
A solid base
The feeling of quality is apparent in a Volvo coach. One of the reasons is its structural strength and stability. This reduces noise, vibrations and harshness, providing quiet and steady ride comfort.
Productivity is further enhanced by the long service intervals and trouble-free maintenance. And choosing a service contract will give you complete control of running costs and assurance that only Genuine Volvo Parts are used – and fitted by experts.
Uphill, downhill, heat and icy winds. No matter the road conditions, Volvo safety remains. The brakes are very powerful and have electronic brake force distribution, which allows for safer driving. A powerful retarder can take care of much of routine braking and reduce lining wear.
Safety up front
At the front, the driver and guide are protected by Volvo’s safety systems – Front Impact Protection (FIP) and Knee Impact Protection System (KIPS). In the event of a frontal collision, the Front Underrun Protection System (FUPS), helps to protect other vehicles involved.
