Volvo XC40 — A Scandinavian treat

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Volvo completed its new three-vehicle crossover SUV lineup this spring by adding its smallest and least expensive model — the 2019 XC40. We think it may be the best of the three, which also includes the award-winning mid-sized three-row XC90 and the compact XC60. The XC40 successfully translates the distinctive look of Volvo's larger SUVs into a smaller package.

Volvo has promised to electrify its entire lineup of cars and crossover SUVs by the 2019 model year. This does not mean that Volvo has taken leave of its good sense and will make its entire fleet run on pure electricity. What this does mean is a plug-in hybrid version of every vehicle will be available throughout the lineup.

Last summer Volvo announced that every vehicle it launches from 2019 will have an electric motor putting electrification at the core of its future business. Virtually every car maker is embracing electrification, and Volvo said it wants to be out front offering a wide range of electrified vehicles from fully electric cars, plug-in hybrids and mild hybrids.

Within the global auto industry, being uniquely different is categorically a "good thing" if you want to attract various buyers and reach out to a larger customer base. Volvo took this philosophy a bit further with the introduction of the premium 2018 S90 four-door luxury sedan.

Volvo V90 Cross Country — Go anywhere in style

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

If a luxury sedan doesn't quite fit your need for interior space and you are one of a few who would rather not drive a taller crossover, but you need the bad-weather or off-road capability offered by a crossover, Volvo has the answer in the V90 Cross Country, a stunning mid-sized wagon that carries the gorgeous design language of the S90 sedan and the XC90 crossover.

2018 Volvo V90



PHOENIX — The all-new 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country is one of the best luxury wagons in the world. But is it good enough to persuade SUV-crazed new car shoppers to forego their high-end utes and opt for the Swedish built Volvo Wagon?
You do remember station wagons, don’t you? Although both demand and product availability in the wagon market has shrunk dramatically in recent years, thanks to the immense popularity of SUVs and crossover vehicles, few automakers have remained as dedicated to the station wagon as Volvo, having sold millions worldwide to date.

Volvo S90 — Impressive mid-sized luxury

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Over the years, Volvo sedans were known as practical and sensible — and loaded with the latest safety features. But many people thought Volvos were bland and didn't arouse much passion in the driving experience. Bring a new Volvo home and the neighbors would hardly notice.

2017 Volvo S90



PHOENIX — We were more than impressed with the completely redesigned XC90 when it was introduced for 2015. It was the first Volvo to be updated since Chinese automaker Geely bought the Swedish car company from Ford in 2010. For the record, the brand has kept its promise to completely refresh and revamp its entire product line by the end of 2017, recently introducing a redesigned XC60 crossover, V90 and V60 crossover wagons, and the all-new flagship S90 mid-sized luxury class sedan tested here.

Volvo's compact S60 sedan enters the 2017 model year instantly recognizable as a Volvo with its brand DNA very much in evidence the moment it comes into sight. While it is a bit cutesy, it's overall size makes a statement suggesting that it's a perfect city-type commuter car, thus serving as a nice daily driver. It's also well engineered for interstate usage as well.

Volvo XC60 — Convenience, luxury and safety

With Volvo's award winning product mix, its consumer acceptance has gained traction, and sales in general have been noteworthy. This up-tick should continue with the introduction of such products as the XC60 two-row sport utility vehicle for 2016.
