As the title says.

Not long ago two BMW X5 ARVs (armed response vehicles) got damaged, one was damaged when it pitted a stolen car in a police pursuit and the other came off the road in the snow while responding.

Well the BMW X5s that were damaged and the remaining ones are being replaced with Volvo XC90s (five of) plus half a dozen Volvo V90s.

Second from the left is the oldest BMW X5 (Xdrive 40d, 3litre 306bhp) (you may notice this is the same X5 that took out the other car in the police pursuit),

Second from the right is one of the new Volvo XC90s (T6 awd 2litre 319bhp),

On the far right is one of six Skoda Octavia dog section vehicles (SE 2.0TDi 4x4 150bhp). I got talking to a dog handler one night at work and he said he loved the Skoda, though it wasn’t a vRS he said it was very quick and just wanted to go.

The Volvo XC90s will be used for armed response and RPU (road policing unit) duties.

Goes back to earlier days from 2003 to about 2014 when we had quite a few Volvo estates.

Most of the current fleet are BMWs. But there are Vauxhalls, Peugeot, Fiats and Fords.
