Volvo Cars and Reviews
Volvo currently offers six different models for the 2015 model year, including two wagons that are brand-new to the U.S. market, as well as the all-new 2016 XC90 SUV, which introduces an all-new design for the brand as well as many new technologies. For 2015, Volvo is introducing American drivers to the V60, a midsize wagon, and the V60 Cross Country, a variant that sits higher than the V60 and behaves more like a crossover SUV. Returning models have been updated with new mechanical features, including new engines and transmissions (only for front-wheel-drive models), engine start/stop technology, and enhanced safety and communications features. Many of these changes will happen midway through the model year, so they'll show up only on vehicles made in the latter half of 2015. The XC60 luxury crossover, for example, is slated to receive a new 5-cylinder turbocharged engine midway through the year, and Volvo says it will add pep and pop to the vehicle's performance.
