Volvo announced at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show details of Care by Volvo , a program that will offer a 24-month subscription alternative for the new XC40 small SUV and gets you the vehicle plus insurance, service and maintenance for $600 per month before applicable local taxes and registration.

Volvo says the no-negotiation process starts with an online order and the car will be delivered through a dealer. Those who sign up for the two-year subscription will have an option to change vehicles and start a new 24-month subscription as early as 12 months into the deal. Care by Volvo also will introduce 24/7 customer care and concierge services, including roadside assistance.
The fine print on the deal is that there is a 15,000-mile-per-year allowance, and it covers tire and wheel damage protection, wear-and-tear replacements including wipers and brakes, and all factory-scheduled maintenance. Subscribers will be insured under a personal policy issued by Liberty Mutual that provides $250,000 bodily injury protection per person and $500,000 bodily injury coverage per accident, with a $500 deductible applied to both comprehensive and collision coverage.
