2015 Volvo XC90 Overseas Delivery Pricing Announced

The most famous European factory delivery program should arguably be the BMW European Delivery Program.

Actually many other European brands offer similar programs, which you can have your car delivered to Europe and drive your own car on your next European vacation if you wanted to. For Volvo, this is called “Overseas Delivery.”

Volvo Plans to Enter Full Size Luxury Sedan Market

When you are considering to buy a luxury-brand car, I bet most of you will not think Volvo has the same prestige image as the three German brands (Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi).

The reasons for this is quite complicated, but one of them is the fact that, Volvo does not has a “real” full-size sedan in its product line at this moment.
