2019 Volvo V60 first drive: The wagon’s time has come

America may love SUVs and crossovers but, if Volvo has its way, at least a small portion of those sales will be carved out by the 2019 Volvo V60.

2019 Volvo S60 first drive: A Swedish revelation

2019 Volvo S60 first drive: A Swedish revelation

The 2019 Volvo S60 has a lot to live up to. Following a series of award-winning new models like the XC90, S90, and XC40, it's the third-generation of an enduringly-popular sedan known for being safe, even if not sporty. That omission is something Volvo really wants to change with its 2019 S60 T8 Polestar Engineered, too. It's also the first vehicle off the line at Volvo's new $1.1bn Ridgeville, SC facility, the automaker's first US production line.

Air travel is dire, autonomous car development is split into poorly-communicating silos, and the goal of cutting road fatalities and making better use of infrastructure simply isn't the priority it ought to be. That, at least, is how Volvo sees the state of play in the self-driving world, and while the striking new 360c concept car may be a very visible expression of its focus on autonomy, arguably it's its ambitions for co-development and exploring new businesses that are more dramatic.

Six Volvo 360c features we really need in production cars

Concept cars are typically a designer's flight of fancy, but that doesn't mean the Volvo 360c doesn't have some very good ideas for real-life. The autonomous EV, with its highly flexible cabin and communicative light strips, is a rich vein of clever details, some more production-ready than others.

Volvo 360c concept gives autonomous cars a purpose and a voice

Volvo 360c concept gives autonomous cars a purpose and a voice

Volvo has revealed its new driverless concept car, but the Volvo 360c is more about how autonomy could change your day-to-day life than the usual auto industry obsessions of speed and horsepower. The striking prototype is more about the interior and what you'll do in it, in fact, whether that be sleeping, entertaining, or working. With that, Volvo argues, could come reduced congestion in cities, less of a pressure to live in dense urban environments, and even potentially lucrative alternatives to air travel and more.
