Volvo is not known for racing ability or for speed. Though their engines range from 150 to 300 horsepower, the company inclines more for safety and luxury. In fact the concept of the original Volvo when it started in 1924 was to give the Scandinavian people the car that is compatible to the climate of the area. Volvo also strives to provide an environment friendly car which they have been committed to do for the past decades.
But Volvo has improved their vehicles since they started. For 80 years numerous improvements have been made not only to the performance but also to its appearance. The traditional box typed Volvo is now replaced by sleeker body curved. The interior is transformed into a better, more functional and luxurious one. The engines are upgraded continuously to achieve the speed. Along with these developments are the accessories and parts that improve the performance of the vehicle. One of these is the spoiler.
A car spoiler is aerodynamic device that is attached to an automobile to decrease lift, minimize the drag, or increase the amount of force pushing the vehicle's tires to the road surface. Spoilers are usually for racing purposes to improve stability during high speed. But spoilers have become common on passenger vehicles. Mostly they are for styling purposes and have little or negative aerodynamic impact.
There are four types of spoilers: wing spoiler that is suspended above the body of the vehicles; lid spoilers or commonly referred as truck lid spoiler or boot lid spoiler that is often a ridge of plastic or metal attached directly to the top of the trunk lid; roof spoiler that located at the very back of the roof, usually above the window; and splitter that is attached to the front bumper, very close to the road surface. Each spoiler has its own function but the principle is the same.
Volvo spoiler functions as an accessory to improve the image of the vehicle not as a luxury car but a sporty luxury vehicle. Volvo spoilers can transform any Volvo model in the look that will make a Volvo stand out.
