Currently on tour around the country, the vehicle is described by Volvo as being the perfect tourer for both UK and continental travel.  Available with 38/41 seats and being just over 10 metres in length, its superior manoeuvrability makes it highly suitable for both inner city use as well as in the open countryside and more challenging terrain.

James Hyde, Retail Sales Director for Volvo Bus, said:  “All the technical, safety and fuel saving benefits of our Euro 6 chassis combined with the stylish design of the SC5 and its many features make it an impressive and versatile vehicle for drivers and passengers alike.  We’re confident that its suitability for both urban and rural touring means it will prove to be hugely successful with coach operators around the UK.

“We’d encourage any operators who would like find out more to contact their local Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, who can arrange to bring the vehicle along to their premises for a test drive* and to answer any questions they may have.”

Although classed as a midi, the Volvo B8R SC5 offers extensive luggage capacity and an optional rear saloon toilet as well as a range of executive level specification features expected by today’s coach passenger, including reclining seats, three point seat belts and leather headrests.

The Volvo Sunsundegui SC5 will be in Ireland for one week from 11 May and then returns to the UK when it will be available during June for test driving and viewing.
