Second Volvo Sunsundegui Sideral 10 coach for Logans in 2012

County Antrim based operator, Logans Travel have taken delivery of a second Volvo B7R Sideral 10 Sunsundegui coach, just three months after purchasing their first.

“We’ve been buying new Volvo coaches since 1995,” explained Logans Travel Managing Director, Sean Logan. “The reason being that they are quite simply the best product on the market. Not only that, but the back-up and support you get with Volvo is second to none.”

Established for over 40 years, Logans Travel operate 25 Volvo coaches on private hire contracts and tour work throughout Northern Ireland and Europe. “The new coach is the perfect size and capacity to fit into a niche that isn’t currently serviced by other models in our operation,” continued Sean Logan.

“We were absolutely delighted with the B7R Sunsundegui we took earlier in the year; it’s a perfect mid-range vehicle, complementing our existing fleet and we also really like the styling.”

Logans Travel’s new 10.3 metre coach is fitted with 38 passenger seats, each with three point safety belts. It features an onboard toilet, a TV monitor, DVD player and a reversing camera. The new coach is specified with the 7.1 litre Volvo D7E engine, which is capable of 290hp and combines common rail technology with a fuel injection system to provide low fuel consumption and a longer service life.

“Logans Travel took one of our B7R Sideral 10 coaches earlier this year and that was the first time they’d specified the Volvo Sunsundegui combination,” commented Volvo Bus Regional Sales Manager, Duncan Crosby. “It’s therefore particularly pleasing to see them return so quickly to specify another.”
