Volvo is one of the best-known European manufacturers, with a number of notable innovations throughout its history and a reputation for producing distinctive cars with a strong safety record. From its beginnings in 1927 Volvo made safety a key part of its vehicle designs, and is credited with bringing features like laminated glass, the three-point seatbelt and dedicated child seats to the marketplace. More recently Volvo was sold to the Chinese Geely Group, and following significant investment Volvo has produced a new generation of vehicles with a premium feel.
