Volvo experience day at Prideaux Place Padstow | Helston Garages Volvo

Volvo Truro Experience Event April 2016


Truro Motor Company held a successful event for over 200 invited customers on Sunday 17th April at Prideaux Place, Padstow with this beautiful Elizabethan manor, set in an endlessly picturesque part of North Cornwall, providing the perfect backdrop for customers to experience the very latest Volvo model range.

The dealership took 26 Volvo models to the event including 22 demonstration cars. These were a mix of dealership demonstrators and Volvo Car UK press cars including 5 variants of the multi award winning All New Volvo XC90. All cars were available for customers to drive throughout the day following a pre-planed route chosen specifically to show off the driving characteristics of these latest Volvo models.

Also present at the event, was the 350 bhp Volvo V60 Polestar considered to be the most responsive, fun to drive Volvo Estate ever. Customers enjoyed experience drives with Volvo Parts Manager Paul Hammond at the wheel who safely demonstrated the awesome performance of this striking model.

Throughout the day, over 120 customer test drives took place turning the roads from Padstow to Winnards Perch into a Volvo test track which certainly caused a lot of admiring glances from passing motorists no doubt bemused at seeing so many Volvo models in one place.

In between drives, customers enjoyed light refreshments in both the outdoor marquee and the Prideaux Place tearoom overlooking the renowned deer park with views down to Padstow. Here, after their test drives, customers took the opportunity to discuss some very special offers, that were only available at the event, with the Volvo Truro Sales team.
