SWEDISH TURBO BRICKS
A soggy Sunday morning, mud, green wellington boots and two or three dogs jumping out of the back. This is what springs to mind when I think about a Volvo estate.
Volvo has been producing estate cars for longer than anyone and it shows!
For some very strange reason, every Petrolheart seems to secretly love Volvo Estates. They’re not usually sporty, they’re not quick, they don’t go around bends incredibly fast neither are they much fun to drive, so why on earth such hidden admiration?
In general, we’re attracted to machines that fulfill their task at the fullest, even if, sometimes it’s not the most fashionable way of doing so. With such a long legacy of estates, going back nearly 70 years, and sporty turbocharged models for the past 40, these Swedish Turbo Bricks have certainly gained fame for their brute force, solidity and dependability to get the job done. This may be the most adored non-performance vehicle around, and that easily makes them cooler than the underside of your pillow
