Hate hay fever? Hate polluted air? If so, love Volvo's Air Quality System and Pollen Filter. One or both of these is now fitted to every new vehicle in the manufacturer's range. The pollen filter, of course, catches nature's pollutants like a tissue catches sneezes - but the Air Quality System is even smarter. This has a sensor to monitor incoming air. If it is polluted - perhaps by diesel fumes from a nearby lorry - the system closes the car's vents automatically. Volvo says this ensures that air within its vehicles is cleaner than air outside.

Nick Connor, Managing Director of Volvo Car UK, said: "Now that some warmer weather has arrived - albeit a few months late - it's worth reminding drivers that a Volvo has been designed from the outset to keep the causes of hay fever at bay whilst in the car". He added: "As well as the health aspects of not breathing in pollen, ozone, and hydrocarbons - the safety benefits associated with a driver avoiding long bouts of sneezing whilst driving at speed on a motorway shouldn't be underestimated."

Volvo produce a range of cars to suit a range of fresh air lovers. Highlights include the Volvo C30, which is a two-door coupé with sharp styling and a fashionable image. This costs from only £15,295. Or, how about the Volvo V70 Estate. This has rock-solid handling and a pleasing maximum cargo capacity of 1,600-litres. And the price? The V70 could help you breathe deeply from £27,920. That brings us to the Volvo XC90. This has four-wheel- drive, so it suits mud-plungers and caravan luggers. All from £35,695. Fresh air is then free.
