"Cars are driven by people. The guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo, therefore, is and must remain - safety." That was the declaration made by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson, the founders of Volvo. Since the first Volvo, the OV4 (nicknamed Jakob), rolled out of their Gothenburg factory in 1927, quality and passenger safety have been paramount.

Swedish inventor, Nils Bohlin invented the modern version of the three-point seat belt, and in 1959 when Volvo introduced Bohlin's lap-and-shoulder belt, there was no way of knowing it would one day become a standard safety device. Few other vehicle manufacturers have so persistently led the industry with safety innovations or have so consistently rated five-stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Simply making a car safe is one thing, though not having it look like a tank or car in a plastic bubble is entirely another. What continues to distinguish Volvo is their ability to incorporate cutting-edge Scandinavian style lines and the finest creature comforts into an exceptionally well handling car that also happens to be extremely safe.

Case in point- the Volvo S60 and XC90. The S60 is a well established yet unconventional member of the entry-level luxury sedan segment, and the XC90 is a solid seven-passenger alternative for those needing more room for cargo. Both are big on safety, comfort and functionality, and both are prestige-style leaders in their respective classes. Select models of the S60 and XC90 can also benefit from a K&N 33-2972 high-performance air filter replacement.

Very few things can improve on what Volvo has already established with these two cars, or be anywhere near as cost-effective as replacing the existing factory air filter with a K&N 33-2972 high-performance replacement, designed to increase horsepower and acceleration while providing outstanding air filtration. This reusable air filter is a direct replacement for the stock OEM air filter, so no alterations of any sort will be necessary. Using the same amount of effort and time required to replace the existing factory air filter, you could be installing the premier reusable air filter.

The 33-2972 replacement air filter comes with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty, and based on regular day-to-day commuting results, you won’t even need to think about cleaning your K&N air filter for up to 50,000 safe and carefree miles depending on driving conditions.
