    Official: Volvo confirms unnamed US model reveal for NY show
    1363878060

    Tucked into the press release for the "display debut" of the Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid at the New York Auto Show, Volvo snuck in a single line announcing that it will also be introducing a new model for the North American market. As much as we'd love to see the svelte V40 on American roads, we're pretty sure the automaker is looking to fill its US station ...

Volvo has taken a big swing for the 2014 model year in that regard, and has brought along a full product portfolio of new cars. In the main, this means that the Swedish brand has fast-tracked facelifts for its already-attractive ...

    Paris: 2013 Volvo V40 R-Design leaves us feeling blue in Paris
    1348867260

    We were more than a little bummed when Volvo proclaimed it didn't intend to bless the United States with its V40 hatchback/wagon. We're even more bummed now that there's this newly debuted R Design model at the Paris Motor Show. Even though the most powerful engine remains the same 254-horsepower turbo five cylinder (a 115-horsepower diesel engine is ...

    With the S40 gone and the C30 on its way out the door, Volvo has a few holes in its line that Audi and BMW are happy to fill with the all-new A3 and 1 Series, respectively. Enter the V40, a five-door hatch that's one of the most attractive designs from Sweden since the Ikea Skürg. It's a svelte bit of kit, with an organic fascia bleeding into a ...

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 ...

    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 ...
