A day in the life of a mum with a Volvo XC60

03 Sep 2015 Car Style

We gave mum of two, Cathryn, the Volvo XC60 for a day to see how it really coped with family life. We almost had to pry the keys from her…

A day in the life of a mum with a Volvo XC60

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF

I’m a stay at home mum. I have a two year old son, Hayden, and a five year old daughter, Chloe.

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE CAR?

“I love the Volvo. As soon as I saw it I loved the look of the car, it’s a beautiful looking car.”

RUN US THROUGH YOUR AVERAGE DAY…

Each day it’s a pretty early start. The kids get up around 6-6:30, have their breakfast, get everything ready and have the bags packed for Kinder. The Volvo made it very easy, the booster seat was brilliant and it’s just very enjoyable getting the kids in the car. The boot is excellent too, to put the stroller in the boot and there is a sensor on the boot that goes up and down really well. And then off we go.

AND HOW ABOUT THE DRIVE?

It’s a very easy drive, a very smooth car to drive. So it makes for a relaxing trip to Kinder. Yeah I love driving the Volvo. It’s very smooth driving over the speed bumps, I noticed that; the suspension is excellent. It’s so smooth that my two year old fell asleep at one point. The reverse cameras were really good when I was parking, that’s an extra bonus as well as the navigation. I found that really helpful having the navigation. Very easy to drive car, and it’s excellent, especially with young kids. Makes life as a mum very easy. Yep, we love it. We’ve all connected, the family is connected with it and I wouldn’t change it.
