About Volvo

Founded in 1927, Volvo is an automaker based in Gothenburg, Sweden. While the brand had relatively humble beginnings, Volvo has claimed its stake as a luxury brand in recent years. Volvo currently offers a wide range of sedans, hatchbacks, crossovers, and SUVs for sale in the North American market, with popular models including the S60 sedan, the C70 convertible, and the XC90 SUV.

The Volvo S60 is a luxury sedan that offers spacious seating for up to five people; in its 2018 model year, its base T5 Dynamic trim is offered with standard equipment such as a turbocharged 2.0L engine at 240 hp, a sunroof, forward-collision warning/mitigation, and even Wi-Fi capability. The 2018 S60 is also available with optional all-wheel drive, though front-wheel drive is standard on most trims.

Those with a need for more space would do well to check out the Volvo XC90, a midsize crossover SUV that is available for sale in both two- and three-row configurations to seat anywhere from five to seven passengers. Standard equipment on the 2017 XC90 includes a turbocharged 2.0L engine at 250 hp, a panoramic sunroof, premium vinyl upholstery, 10-speaker sound system, and roof rails. As with many Volvo models, all-wheel drive is optional and front-wheel drive is standard on most trims.

The 2017 Volvo XC90 also comes in a plug-in hybrid version, which boasts a supercharged 2.0L engine at 316 hp and an electric motor for a combined output of 400 hp; it gets an EPA-estimated 54 MPGe combined.1

From its modest beginnings in the 1920s to the powerhouse it has become today, Volvo has come a long way over the years. There's no doubt that today's Volvo cars are synonymous with luxury, power, and style.
