ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION ARE HALLMARKS OF THE 1999 VOLVO LINE-UP

ROCKLEIGH, NJ -- While the big news for Volvo is certainly the all-new and highly advanced S80, every other member of the 1999 model line-up bristles with engineering and technological innovation. From drivetrain to ergonomics to safety, each Volvo offers something new and of value to the consumer.

“Volvo design is inherently human focused,” says Hans-Olov Olsson, President and CEO of Volvo Cars of North America, Inc. “Over the years, innovative safety engineering and functional, ergonomically correct systems and features have become synonymous with the Volvo name. We create cars that meet consumer needs. We don’t indulge in technological gimmickry. That is not the Swedish way. That is not the Volvo way,” Olsson added.

For 1999 Volvo have developed engineering and technology solutions in the following areas:

S80 SEDAN

C70 Coupe and Convertible, S70 and V70

C70 Convertible (unique features)
