Volvo Spot Portrays New V90 Cross Country As ‘The Perfect Get Away Car’

Have you ever wanted to briefly get away from your daily chores? Well, Volvo thinks the new V90 Cross Country is the perfect car for that.

Designed as the company’s answer to the Audi A6 Allroad and Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain, the jacked up estate is billed as ‘the perfect get away car’ in Volvo’s latest marketing campaign.

Taking inspiration from the late British philosopher Alan Watts, the campaign encourages people to rediscover the passions and adventures that they once loved and prioritized.

Citing an international research, Volvo says that 6 out of 10 people would spend more time pursuing outdoor activities, such as hiking, running and cycling, but 68 percent pointed out that work takes up too much time in their life for this.

Most of us reach a point in life when we choose a career over being a ski bum or a surfer. For some people this can mean losing their sense of adventure as they settle into a comfortable life. This campaign reminds us that now is the time to reconnect with the people and passions we love so much and to live our lives to the fullest“, said Volvo Car Group’s Global Marketing VP, Thomas Andersson.

Shot in and around Vancouver, Canada, the video shows four business professionals reconnecting with their lost passions. The footage is sprinkled with the 1959 ‘Live Fully Now’ speech of Alan Watts, in which people are encouraged to live the moment, rather than think about the future, and has a clear message: “You can’t live at all, unless you can live fully, now.

    The bigger rims look nice, but meatier tires would also look nice, especially if you’re trying to sell this as a car that can actually go off road. the white one has a much better tire:rim ratio and actually makes me feel like it can safely go off road and through snow

        So do I brother. I like this car a lot more than I should, for the sake of my wallet. I’ve always liked Volvo wagons but the offroad versions are just magnificent. One dream of mine is to drive Oslo to the North Cap, the very top of the Scandinavian peninsula, and I’ll want to do it in one of these.
