Volvo Spy Shots

Volvo is a Swedish brand of luxury vehicles founded in 1927 in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was owned by Ford Motor Company until being sold to Chinese automaker Geely in 2010. Volvo made a name for itself in the US with its trademark boxy vehicle designs, bulletproof reliability and industry-leading safety.

    Spy Shots: Volvo XC90 prototype spied for the first time ever
    1391464800

    Despite its advanced age, the Volvo XC90 remains a highly competent luxury SUV. The design has aged nicely, and it's clear from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety naming the big Volvo a Top Safety Pick + that the safety-minded Swedes behind it knew what they were doing. Still, even the finest cars need replacing, especially after nearly 12 years on ...

    Send us photos of a new wagon out testing, and you've got our attention. Send us photos of a fast wagon lapping the Nürburgring and, well, we're just as giddy as can be. Our spy shooters just blessed our inbox with some fresh shots of Volvo's new V60 wagon out testing in Polestar guise, sporting the same Rebel Blue paint job as the ...

    Spy Shots: 2015 Volvo XC90 mule spotted testing in the snow
    1363872420

    The Volvo XC90 was a big step for the Swedish automaker in 2003, but the midsize crossover has changed very little since its introduction. All that's about to change as Volvo starts its initial development on the 2015 XC90, which we see for the first time in these spy shots showing a cobbled-together XC70. Like the current XC90, the next-generation model ...

    Spy Shots: Volvo S60, XC60 caught testing with freshened faces
    1359052140

    Neither the Volvo S60 nor the Volvo XC60 are that old, but the Swedish automaker is wasting no time ensuring that two of its most popular products don't get stagnant on the market, a fate that has befallen some of the other products it offers. Even though these two models helped usher in a new styling direction for Volvo not too long ago, the modest ...

    Spy Shots: Volvo S80 nip/tuck spotted in China
    1355691780

    An early look at the new face of the Volvo S80 has made its way to the web. The Chinese site Auto Sina spotted a revised version of the country's S80L out in public and in plain view. Not too long ago, Doug Speck, the global head of marketing and sales for Volvo, said designers were working on a mild facelift for the S60 and S80, and while it is possible ...

    Spy Shots: Volvo XC40 caught testing
    1338926400

    After being spotted in Arizona last month, a completely camo'ed Volvo XC40 has been spotted testing in Southern Europe, getting ready for what everyone expects is a Paris Motor Show debut this September. The five-door hatch was caught completely naked on a closed Norwegian road during a photo shoot, and from the single photo we've seen, it's a looker ...

    Spy Shots: M3-fighting Volvo S60 Polestar spotted testing
    1337980440

    If news of a more powerful Volvo S60 sounds familiar, it's because we just reported on this subject earlier in the week. Now, though, a reader of the same Swedish site that initially broke the news has fired back with a set of spy photos, and we can clearly see that Volvo is indeed making improvements to the S60. As for what exactly those improvements ...

    Spy Shots: Volvo XC40 spotted testing in Arizona

    A keen-eyed reader managed to snag a few photos of what looks to be the upcoming Volvo XC40 ahead of the vehicle's debut at the Paris Motor Show. Like most manufacturers, Volvo is keen to offer buyers the small crossovers they demand. With a taller ride height, more ground clearance and a more aggressive front fascia than the V40, the XC40 should do just ...

    Breaking: Striking Viking: Volvo V40 slips out on Facebook ahead of Geneva
    1329926160

    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 ...

    Spy Shots: More images of Volvo V40 surface ahead of Geneva debut
    1329415140

    When the curtains rise on the Geneva Motor Show in a couple of weeks, so will Volvo lift the veil on a vital new product: the V40. Replacing the C30, S40 and V50, the new V40 is the Swedish automaker's assault on the Audi A3, BMW 1 Series, et al. We've had our glimpses at what to expect with a series of spy shots, a couple of teasers and a solitary rear ...

    Are these the patent filings for Volvo's S-Class-fighting S100 flagship?
    1328655660

    There are luxury automakers, there are mainstream automakers, and then there are those in between. Volvo, we'd argue, is one of those marques that doesn't quite compete in the same market as, say, Mercedes-Benz or Lexus, but that looks as if it's about to change. The Swedish automaker has been toying for years with the idea of building a new flagship to ...

    Don't let this test vehicle's proportions deceive you – there's stretched Volvo C30 architecture under all of that cladding. Yes, Volvo is working on expanding its C30 range with the addition of this, the upcoming V30, set to rival the Audi A3 and recently redone BMW 1 Series hatchback in Europe. There's also a high-riding crossover variant, ...

    We've just seen the 2011 Volvo S60 in all its production glory, and hot on the heels of that, we've got some snaps of the wagon version undergoing winter testing. Volvo's array of offerings have always included wagons. Safe, stolid Swedish Estates are a big part of what built the brand, and that's why the V50, V70 and XC70 are rockin' the two-box in ...

    Spy Shots: Next-gen Volvo S60 caught completely uncovered
    1252508220

    The gestation period for a new Volvo model has always been rather languid. Back in the 1950s, when tailfins were making annual progress toward low earth orbit, Volvo was cranking out PV444 and 544s. Those cars spent a good part of a decade looking like 1940s Fords, and so it's gone with Volvo's models. The iconic 200 series was in production for nearly 20 ...

    Spy Shots: Volvo XC60 out playin' in the snow

    Volvo is working hard to finish development on the production version of its XC60 CUV before it goes on sale later in 2008. We'll see the official unveiling in Geneva most likley, and the concept has certainly whetted our appetite. Aimed at the smaller end of the premium CUV market, the XC60 will take on comers like the BMW X3 and the upcoming Mercedes ...

    Volvo's adding some truckish cues to the XC70's exterior in celebration of its move to the EUCD platform. The shiny accents around the fog lamps, along the rockers, and in the rear fascia recall some ambulance conversions we've seen. The Tupperware theme of the current XC is carried over to the new wagon: we wish they'd stop. It looks okay when the car's ...

    Spy Shots: Volvo's next XC70
    1160675580

    It appears as if a couple more spy shots taken via a shaky camera phone have leaked out of a Volvo factory/warehouse from an undisclosed location. First were shots of the V70 wagon, and now we have the XC70 in our sights, as well. These new shots are actually very telling compared with previous spy shots of the XC70 showing a test mule completely shrouded ...
