  • 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country

    The sun bathes Lulea, Sweden with light for less than eight hours during the middle of the winter. It rises over the Gulf of Bothnia and its small, frigid islands and sets behind the charming and colorful town scattered with red, yellow and white buildings. As pretty as this small city near the Arctic Circle is during the daylight, it’s the 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country that I can’t keep my eyes from. The small wagon on stilts tugs on my automotive enthusiast heartstrings—long roof, capacious interior, gorgeous exterior, safe interior—even if it won’t tug at many...

    BMW's redesigned 3-Series sedan will spawn its wagon body style early next year but the longroof will not make it to the United States. When asked about the arrival of the new 3-Series Sports Wagon in the U.S. by CarBuzz in an interview published Sunday, a BMW spokesman replied, “BMW of North America has no plans to bring the next-generation 3-Series Sports Wagon to the U.S. market.” No reason was mentioned but it likely has to do with buyers here preferring crossovers to wagons. Recall, BMW has just added an X2 crossover that's priced only slightly lower than a 3-Series. And...

    Mercedes-Benz last week presented its third-quarter financials, and tucked away in a lengthy document detailing the results was a slide providing a product roadmap for the coming year. First noticed by Motor1, the roadmap provides us with details that were already largely known but there are a couple of nuggets of good info. It reveals that a redesigned V-Class van will be launched in early 2019, which we should see here as a new Metris. The model is expected to be a major update of the current V-Class as opposed to a true redesign. A redesigned CLA coupe-like sedan currently out testing will...

    Volvo has a redesigned V60 wagon on sale soon, and just like its predecessor the handsome load lugger has spawned a more rugged V60 Cross Country variant.

  • 2019 Volvo V60 R-Design

    Volvo's newest V60 wagon is one handsome load lugger. It's a great alternative to the XC60 if you loathe the idea of driving a crossover SUV but still want the added cargo space, and now it can look downright sporty thanks to the addition of an R-Design package. Buyers in some markets will also be able to add extra features with a new R-Design Pro pack. Volvo's R-Design packs aren't designed to offer serious performance upgrades but they do sharpen the look of the vehicles, in addition to some mild tuning tweaks. For the V60, the R-Design pack adds cool touches like gloss black accents to the...

    Sharper look for 2019 Audi A4

    It seems like the current A4 only arrived yesterday but Audi already has an updated version of its popular small sedan.
