Volvo’s renaissance in the US joins complete swing.
The once-hobbled Swedish Automobile firm now has actually a brand-brand-new SUV in the XC90 that went when it come to sale in 2012 — and a brand-new luxury sedan in the S90 that will certainly strike dealers this fall.
But Volvo, arguably, is finest known with regard to its wagons.
We enjoyed the launching of the V90 wagon last week. It’s a sizable family hauler reminiscent of Volvo’s very early prime — a time when, as Company Insider’s Matt DeBord put it — the “back seats were adorned along with aged wool blankets, pet dog hair, lacrosse sticks, and thermoses of homemade hot chocolate.”
Now, it appears as however Volvo prefers to recapture a few of that magic that Volvo loyalists like by bringing to the US an additional wagon — the compact V40.

There are existing V40s tooling about overseas, and they’ve been updated along with Volvo’s latest make language, featuring the now-famous “Thor’s Hammer”-design daytime operating lights. The redesigned V40 that’s destined with regard to the US is anticipated to sit when it come to Volvo’s Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), which is a variant of the automaker’s scalable platforms that were adopted along with its brand-new generation of vehicles.
The V40 will certainly most likely contend along with various other European 4-door hatchbacks in this segment, featuring the Audi A3 Sportback and the MINI Cooper 4-door.
