Narrow passages, a road system from a long-gone era and always, the relentless pressure of time. Are you equipped to meet the city centre manoeuvrability test?
The new Volvo FL offers excellent driveability and all round visibility - perfect for the city.
City centres and urban environments are getting tougher for trucks. Driving regulations and permitted stopping times are being tightened while the demand for punctual deliveries increases. You and your customers will be pleased to hear that the new Volvo FL offers manoeuvrability characteristics and features that get you in and out of where you need to be without unnecessary drama.
Designed for convenience
With its outstanding turning radius, I-Sync transmission and considerate driving ergonomics, the Volvo FL places less physical demands on the driver than many other trucks.
When it comes to increasing driving awareness, a rear camera is also among our most popular options. And with mirrors that minimise blind spots, safety for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users is also increased. At Volvo, we understand the importance of manoeuvrability – so why not let the new Volvo FL take you to previously inaccessible places, both literally and commercially?
An adrenaline fuelled chase through uncompromising streets.
A test with a twist
Testing the manoeuvrability characteristics of our new trucks allowed us to get creative and come up with a unique challenge. The result was the transformation of Spanish border town Ciudad Rodrigo into the ultimate bull-running test track – but this time the runners included a new 12 tonne Volvo FL with D5 engine.
