Americans are not really station wagon people and prefer SUVs, but Volvo reckons their latest sports tourer stands a good chance of altering the long established habits of the Yanks.

Volvo’s in-house tuning and motorsport arm, Polestar, announced the launch of a series of performance upgrades for the new Volvo S90 and V90. As always, these are thorough upgrades that not only increase the output of the engines, but also the drivetrain system so that you can make most of the extra oomph.
What are the chances of a Volvo XC90 owner deciding to do this to his or her car? Yes, it’s practically zero. The XC90 is the ultimate family car, and what you see here is an affront to every single value that makes it great. And that’s why we absolutely love it!

Volvo has dropped the first photos of a couple of new compact concept cars which they say preview the company’s future “premium small cars.” Volvo 40 Series concepts, neatly called 40.1 and 40.2, will eventually be turned into production models called, according to their body styles, the new V40, S40 and XC40.

Going back to what they do best, which is making hugely practical and fairly box-shaped cars, Volvo released today the first pictures of V90 station wagon (estate) prior to the car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Depending on your view, Volvo V90 could be called either a short XC90 SUV or a S90 sedan with […]
Volvo caused quite a stir in the automotive world by unveiling the new flagship sedan, the luxurious and elegant S90. As is often the case with hot new cars, we have already seen the car turned, virtually, into many different variants, including a cool Polestar version. Now let’s check out the car in wagon guise […]
So a day after Volvo revealed the new S90 flagship sedan we get to see it in a different guise thanks to the magic of computer rendering. This is what the Volvo S90 Polestar might look like when they eventually get around making it.

The new 2015 Volvo XC90 R-Design have made its way to the British market where it now available from £49,785. This almost 50 grand SUV is still the most family-oriented car you can buy, but it’s been garnished with sporty features as well, presumably to stop dad from getting depressed!
