The smoothness comes from the engine’s character but also from the legendary 12-speed Volvo I-Shift gearbox. The automated gear-changing is electronically controlled and specially adapted to coach touring. In other words, it has been optimised for high average speed, low fuel consumption and fewer gear changes, which gives increased cruising comfort, and reduced emissions.
Uphill, downhill, heat and icy winds. No matter the road conditions, you can rely on Volvo safety. The brakes are very powerful and have electronic brake force distribution, which promotes safer driving. An optional retarder can take care of much of routine braking and reduce lining wear. And, as an additional safety measure, an alcolock device is available.
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 the strength and stability of the frame and the body structure. This reduces noise, vibrations and harshness, providing quiet and steady ride comfort.
Productivity is further enhanced by the long service intervals and simplified maintenance. And choosing a service contract will give you complete control of running cost, and assurance that only Genuine Volvo Parts are used – and fitted by experts.
