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 launch a volley of new models, and the new

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

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 have to try not to like it too much, because we just received confirmation that it is not, we'r

Volvo drops the full skinny on new V40

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

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

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 take with its all-new V40, but we do know we've see

Say 'goodbye' to these cars and trucks for the new year

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, ther

Volvo recalls four models over potential power seat flaw

Volvo is recalling a number of models due to faulty seat rails that may allow the passenger to slide the seat too far forward. According to the Swedish automaker, the mechanism was manufactured wrong, and if the passenger is seated too close to the dash, an injury may occur during an accident. According to the National Highway Transportation Administration, Volvo dealers will inspect the seat rails

Report: Volvo mulling sub-S40 sedan, BMW X1 rival

Now that Volvo is no longer a part of Ford Motor Company, change is inevitable. The Swedish automaker can no longer rely on Ford to supply low-cost global platforms or new powertrains in the future, so that future may include fewer platforms and better model distinction. AutoWeek reports that Volvo will soon go from three platforms to two by adding some new models and taking away some others. On the choppi

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
