New Volvo S40 saloon: from £15,298
The new Volvo S40 saloon is now available with the offer of a 3 years/36,000 miles servicing package for £100 for all models registered before the end of June.

New models in the Volvo S40 range for spring '05 include the dynamic, new Sport models2, available from £17,898, with the added style of a full body kit, including front and rear spoilers and side sills, unique Dala upholstery and larger 18in 'Medusa' alloy wheels. The SE Sport combines the dramatic exterior of the Sport with the added luxury of the SE, from £19,748.

The addition of the new 1.6 petrol and 1.6 diesel engines sees on the road prices of the Volvo S40 range now start from £15,298 and £16,568 respectively. This also means the S40 is now available with its full range of engines – the five-cylinder petrol engines (T5 and 2.4i), and the four-cylinder 1.6D, 2.0D turbo diesel and 1.6 and 1.8-litre petrol engines.

New Volvo V50 Sportswagon
The new Volvo V50 Sportswagon range is available until the end of June with a 3 year/36,000 mile servicing package offer for £100.

The latest models to join Volvo's V50 Sportswagon range since its launch last year are the new Sport and SE Sport2 models complete with full body kits and larger 18in alloy wheels, and available from £19,148 and £20,998 respectively. In addition, added traction is now available with the V50 T5 AWD (All-Wheel Drive) topping the range in SE and SE Sport trim levels for £26,163 and £27,363 respectively.

Volvo S60 saloon: from £19,995
Despite price increases of £250 on all S60 models this year (except the 2.0T), the sporty S60 saloon range offers excellent value and specifications, and still starts from £19,995 for the 2.0T S with the £1,000 deposit contribution currently available1 for all S60 models financed through Volvo Car Finance before the end of March.

Volvo S60 R/V70 R: high performance
The new 2005 Volvo S60 and V70 models were launched last summer, and the high-performance, 300 bhp S60 R and V70 R models have now completed the line-up with revisions to their exterior styling, including new nose, lower spoiler and rear bumper. More significantly, the standard Four-C active chassis has been fine-tuned with second generation software and settings specifically for UK road conditions.

Volvo V70 estate
Since the Volvo V70 range was updated and enhanced last summer to offer better quality and luxury, it has continued to be the best selling large, premium estate car in 2004.

Superior Volvo safety standards and high standard specifications mean the V70 still represents excellent value, despite a £300 price increase across the range for 2005. What's more, there is currently a £1,000 deposit contribution1 available for all V70 models registered before the end of March.

Volvo C70 convertible: summer fun Volvo's cool convertible offers the double benefits of roof-less motoring with enough room for four adults, plus Volvo safety standards. Limited numbers of the C70 Collection special edition are still available, with the added style of Toscana Tan or Black soft leather upholstery, unique 17in alloy wheels and a choice of either the 2.0T, 2.4T or T5 turbo engines. The Volvo C70 range starts from £24,878, while Collection models range from £26,578 to £29,978, on the road.

Volvo S80 saloon
The Volvo S80 executive saloon offers incredible space and luxury travel. Recently updated, the S80 looks as stylish as ever, and is competitively priced from £21,493, up to the top of the range Executive model at £41,843.

Volvo XC70 estate
The Volvo XC70 offers the winning combination of the all-terrain ability and ground clearance of an SUV with the practicality of an estate. Freshly updated last summer, including improved interior trim and larger skid plates front and rear, plus the option of a specially tuned Four-C active chassis with Sport and Comfort modes, the Volvo XC70 range now starts from £28,288 following a price increase of £355 on all models.

Volvo XC90 SUV
Increased production of the hugely successful Volvo XC90 has steadily reduced waiting lists to around six months or less, so orders taken now could be delivered this summer. The XC90's popularity means values of used models are equally strong, confirmed in a recent Which? report which placed the XC90 as the top off-roader by retaining 49 per cent of its value after three years.

To expand the choice of engines available, a 210 bhp, 2.5T petrol engine has just been introduced to the Volvo XC90 range between the D5 diesel and range-topping T6, with prices starting from £31,230 (on the road).
