    Official: Volvo rolling in to LA with C70 Inscription edition
    1320778800

The joint venture with Pininfarina that produced the C70 is shutting down and we've yet to receive any word on a potential new production site.

    Frankfurt: Volvo Concept You is a giant blue Wallace looking for Gromit [w/video]
    1316017920

    Volvo's Concept You is long, low and wide, three of our favorite flavors when it comes to sedans.

    Volvo has ambitious plans to double its current volume by 2020, and a big component of that plan is to penetrate the Chinese auto market.

    Performance Volvos have long been the sleepers of all sleepers. That is to say, quiet aggression with a hidden punch. Swedish tuning house Heico Sportiv is a big part of that formula, its tuned Volvos shaming sportscar drivers who just never know what hit 'em.

    We recently drove the 2011 Volvo S60 in the wilds of Oregon and came away rather impressed with both its performance and in-person aesthetics.
