  • 2019 Volvo XC40 T5 AWD R-Design

    Care by Volvo jumped off the starting line with a hiccup, but the subscription program has become more popular than executives first expected. Automotive News (subscription required) reported Monday that within four months of the program's launch, Volvo ran out of the entire number of subscriptions it anticipated for the first year.

  • 2019 Volvo XC40

    Say you’re away on vacation and someone you trust, perhaps a close friend or family member, needs to borrow your car.

(Keys are so yesterday, don’t you know?) And you'll be able to keep tabs on the time the car is used and the miles racked up through the app. There’s no option to accept payment for use of the car just...
