  1. It’s an ideal example of understated luxury, and whole world knows Volvo makes safest cars on this planet. And at given price tag, it is worth buying over its German rivals. And one thing will come with it by default is rarity. There are many mercs, Audi’s and BMWs on Indian roads, but very few Volvo’s are out there.

    All n all , if I had money, I would have definitely bought one.
