    Featured: Volvo aligning model range into three families
    Product Plan Includes Cross Country Models, But No Coupes 1409257800

    Things have been slow in Gothenburg the past few years, but they're picking up speed. The only new model Volvo has released in the past four years since it was taken over by Geely – that being the V40 introduced in 2012 – started its development when the company was still under Ford's umbrella. But now the Swedish automaker is preparing to ...

    1335461400

    The No. 1 car purchased by men was the Porsche 911, while the car with the highest percentage of women buyers was the Volvo S40. Some stereotypes are true. Men like V8s. Women like I4s. According to the third annual demographic study by TrueCar.com on the car buying habits of the sexes, men continue to fixate on size while women care about ...

    Study: These are the 10 new cars with the highest percentage of female ownership
    1332876600

    If you hear the pejorative "chick car," what comes to mind? Mazda MX-5 Miata? Volvo C70? Would you believe neither made Inside Line's list of 2011 models with the highest percentage of female ownership? No. 1, with 57.9-percent female ownership was the Volvo S40.

    Confirmed: Volvo not bringing new V40 to these United States [w/poll]
    1330475400

    There are some cars we enjoy writing about more than others. Those tend to be the ones with the big horsepower numbers and seldom more than two doors, but the new Volvo V40 that was officially released today stands as an exception, because while it is hardly what you'd call exotic, it did pique our interest more than a workaday hatchback should. But we'll ...

    Official: Volvo drops the full skinny on new V40
    1330450320

    Few vehicles have received the kind of gradual, bit by bit roll-out that – intentionally or otherwise – the new Volvo V40 has. The Swedish premium hatchback has been the subject of teasers, spy shots and leaks aplenty – including two video clips and a batch of sixteen images that surfaced just yesterday – but they've all lead up to ...

    Some automakers try their damnedest to keep their new products under wraps until they're good and ready to show it to the world. (And of those, some succeed more than others.) Others, meanwhile, steadily leak out photos and details – through official channels or back ones – to keep us hooked. We're not quite sure which approach Volvo meant to ...

    Teased: Volvo confirms new V40 on the way with shadowy look
    1329235260

    Volvo's V50 wagon may have been discontinued following lackluster sales in the United States (it was phased out after the 2011 model year), but it's an important player in the Swedish brand's global portfolio, where small five-doors remain big business in other markets. To that end, Volvo has just teased its forthcoming V40 ahead of next month's ...

    1324575000

    As we prepare to flip our calendars from 2011 to 2012, it's time to say goodbye to a handful of vehicles that are being sent to the Great Parking Lot In The Sky before the 2012 model year completely takes hold. And while we're not exactly upset about having to bid farewell to things like the Mitsubishi Endeavor, Mazda Tribute or Chevrolet HHR, there are a ...

    Now that Volvo is no longer a part of Ford Motor Company, change is inevitable.

    Volvo's 1.6-liter diesel-powered S40, V50 join sub-100 g/km CO2 club

    In the automotive industry, dropping below the 100 g/km CO2 emissions benchmark is no easy task. Aside from a few vehicles like the TwinAir two-cylinder Fiat 500 and the 1.0-liter Hyundai i10, seldom do we see gasoline- or diesel-powered autos venture into the rarified ranks of the sub-100 g/km CO2 club. Now, Volvo aims to change that with the ...
