With help from parent company Geely, Volvo is ready to fight Mercedes-Benz , BMW , and Audi with a lineup of luxury vehicles that look spectacular and still offer the safety technology consumers expect of the brand. Volvo’s lineup not only includes great sedans and wagons, but also SUVs and the S60 and V60 performance cars.

Least Expensive : The Volvo S60 is the Swedish manufacturer’s entry-level luxury sports sedan. With all the safety and security Volvo is known for, the S60 starts under $35,000.

Sportiest : An upgraded suspension, forged wheels, a brilliant all-wheel drive system, and around 350 horsepower all provide the Volvo S60 Polestar and V60 Polestar with more sporting credentials than your average Volvo.

18-inch alloy wheels and heated front seats are now standard on the 2016 Volvo XC70 . The 300-hp turbo I-6 has been discontinued while the 3.2 AWD trim has been replaced by the T5 AWD variant.

Essentially a raised wagon, the 2016 Volvo XC70 is a two-row crossover available in front- and all-wheel-drive configurations. A replacement, rumored to be called the V90, will be revealed sometime in late 2015 and early 2016 alongside the successor to the S80 midsize luxury sedan, which is the car that the XC70 is based on.

Front drive XC70s are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 rated at 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque while all-wheel-drive-equipped variants utilize a 2.5-liter turbocharged I-5 with 250 hp and 266 lb-ft. An eight-speed automatic is the only gearbox available on front-drive XC70s while all-wheel-drive models are equipped with a six-speed unit. Fuel economy is class competitive, with front drive models achieving up to 23/31 mpg city/highway. Opting for the all-wheel-drive XC70 drops those numbers down to 19/26 mpg.

Don't get high before your shift at the BMW factory. That's the message missed by two employees at the company's Munich... READ STORY

Ferrari has teamed up with Hublot to celebrate its 70th birthday with a limited-edition watch. Penned with input from the Prancing Horse's design studio, it's limited to just 210 examples. Pricing hasn't been announced.    http://bit.ly/2ogeEUd

The next generation of the Audi RS 6 Avant could be sold in the United States, according to <em>Car & Driver</em>. The wagon segment is small, but the company is trying to make a business case for it. If it's approved, it won't arrive before 2019.    http://bit.ly/2ofSEcr

Volvo ’s big reveal at the Geneva Motor Show  is an all-new, second-generation XC60 SUV  – a new five-seat 4x4 which sits underneath the large XC90 in the firm’s SUV line-up. It shares its platform and much of its styling with its bigger sibling, but Volvo has also worked in some individual character into the XC60 , and is keen to pitch it as more than just an XC90  on a smaller scale.

It's part of an SUV blitz by the Swedish marque. Following the release of the XC60, an even smaller XC40 is set to follow which will be based heavily on Volvo's 40.1 Concept . 

At the recent Geneva Motor Show Volvo’s vice-president of design, Thomas Ingenlath, told us, “I am relaxed coming out with the XC60, because it isn’t such a revolution [as the XC90 was]. But it is a big step and improvement with the new platform. I’m tempted to ask: ‘What could go wrong?’”

If a new model looks like fun—and this sparky little Volvo bobtail surely does—then its maker is figured to be shining up to the Hip, Hop, 'n' Kickin' generation, those active lifestylers still 20 years short of their first wrinkle. And as it happens, Volvo admits to wistful longings for the 28-to-38 crowd— "They don't call, they never drop by!"

But take it from us, there's nothing about this perky C30 that'll turn off the Modern Maturity set, starting with the base price of $23,445. A Volvo in sportswear is still a Volvo.

And this one is definitely a Volvo, an S40 sedan made over with a butt tuck (goodbye to about 200 pounds and 8.5 inches behind the rear wheels) and all-new clothes. Well, new except for the hood and windshield. Chopping off the tail has the visual effect of exaggerating the front overhang, amplifying the wedge shape created by the beltline rising as it sweeps toward the tail. Under the skin, the hearty T5 turbo 2.5-liter five-cylinder powering the front wheels is the only engine, backed by a six-speed manual or, for $1250, a five-speed automatic.
