Nice Work Volvo!

The front seats surround you with perforated leather and are ventilated using built-in fans in the cushions and seat backs to provide extra comfort during hot days. And to really spoil you during long journeys, these seats also feature a new massage function in the lumbar section.

Hello – hot days in the car and long trips where I could really use a massage. Awesome!
