Why Volvo’s Auto-Braking System Might Have Kept The Self-Driving Uber Crash From Being Fatal Why Volvo’s Auto-Braking System Might Have Kept The Self-Driving Uber Crash From Being Fatal

The reason an Uber self-driving car fatally struck a pedestrian in March is coming into sharper focus, thanks to the release of a preliminary report on Thursday from the National Transportation Safety Board. But the agency’s findings raise a notable question: If the car—a Volvo XC90 outfitted with Uber’s own…

These Crazy Volvo Fans Built The AWD Polestar C30 We Always Deserved These Crazy Volvo Fans Built The AWD Polestar C30 We Always Deserved

The C30 Polestar concept was everything Volvo’s little fun-hatch should have been, with all-wheel-drive and 405 horsepower. But the car buying public only ever got the front-wheel-drive C30, even when Polestar tuned it up. That is, unless you took matters into your own hands and Frankenstein’d an all-wheel-drive C30…

Oh god, it’s Tuesday! One of the worst days! Luckily a relaxing commute in your Volvo 780 Bertone Coupe will make everything better.

Praise High, For Google Maps Is Coming To Volvos Praise High, For Google Maps Is Coming To Volvos

While Volvo’s overall infotainment systems are widely hailed as some of the best out there, its navigation system, specifically, is known to be crap. But Volvo wants to remedy that. So now, if you can get one, your next Volvo will have Google Maps instead.

Care By Volvo Is Off To A Messy Start Care By Volvo Is Off To A Messy Start

The Care by Volvo subscription service sounded like a hell of a deal. Pay $600 a month and you’d get not only a brand-new Volvo XC40, but everything from insurance to basic maintenance thrown in with it. No down payments, no extra fees. And it should be a deal—but multiple would-be subscribers say their promised cars…

The 2018 Volvo S90 Is The Thoughtful Luxury Sedan The 2018 Volvo S90 Is The Thoughtful Luxury Sedan

The 2018 Volvo S90 will make you feel fancier just by sitting in it. Between its clean Swedish lines and ornamental buttons, you may leave this car wondering why any other luxury car exists. If it’s not as fancy as the Volvo, just take it away. It is unworthy of carrying you.

The Polestar 1 is shaping up to be a 600 horsepower hybrid monster that’s kinda-sorta from Volvo. Since most people will just assume it’s a Volvo, how much do you think even the best Volvo would cost? $85,000? $90,000? No. It’ll cost $155,000. And that’s just to start.

I Can't See, Hear Or Smell Any Of The Poors Thanks To Volvo's New S90 Ambience Concept I Can't See, Hear Or Smell Any Of The Poors Thanks To Volvo's New S90 Ambience Concept

As I have laid out to you before, I hate using public roadways. Not only is the plebish threat of traffic a very real thing, I am also forced to look at the common folk—an event that leaves me with migraines and mild indigestion for hours afterwards. Which is why I was so thrilled when I heard about Volvo’s new S90…

Suddenly You Want An Old Volvo

If you want a practical old sports sedan, preferably with rear-wheel drive, your car search will take you first to BMW and then probably no where else because you have already gone ahead and bought an E30. But now, take a look at this brick of a Volvo and tell me you don’t feel a pang of doubt.

The Volvo XC90 Hasn't Killed Anyone In Britain In 14 Years The Volvo XC90 Hasn't Killed Anyone In Britain In 14 Years

The current generation of the XC90 might be the safest car of all time, or at least the safest model that doesn’t come with a roll cage, five-point harness, and racing seats. And according to new research, the XC90 hasn’t killed anyone after 14 years on British roads.

Cut A Volvo In Half, Weld It To A Shopping Cart And Prepare To Puke

The goofballs at Hoonigan turned an old Volvo V60 (RIP) into what is basically a full-sized Crazy Cart and proceeded to do the tightest donuts physically possible. Or maybe it’s more like a portable Disneyland teacup ride... deathtrap. Looks fun.

Uber's Autonomous Test Cars Had Volvo's Safety Systems Disabled Uber's Autonomous Test Cars Had Volvo's Safety Systems Disabled

Ever since Uber’s autonomous Volvo XC90 test car fatally struck a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona last week, many people familiar with modern car technology have asked this: why didn’t Volvo’s own automatic braking or crash avoidance systems kick in? Now we know. According to one supplier, Volvo’s standard systems were…

Lynk & Co Unveiled A New Crossover And Still Thinks You Should 'Subscribe' To It Lynk & Co Unveiled A New Crossover And Still Thinks You Should 'Subscribe' To It

After a characteristically bizarre press unveiling in Amsterdam involving some spoon-feeding and a lot of conceptual dancing, Lynk & Co. debuted a new small crossover. But what’s more interesting is how Lynk & Co. wants people to buy it. Or, well, not.

These Nuts Are Building A Caster-Wheeled Drift Cart Out Of A Volvo V70 Chopped In Half

The mad scientists at Hoonigan are big fans of caster-wheeled Crazy Carts—the cool little toys made for drifting—but Crazy Carts just don’t have enough power. So, they’re taking a front-wheel-drive Volvo V70, hacking it in half and making their own giant Crazy Cart for lunatic grown-ups.

This Volvo Wagon May Become The World's Biggest Crazy Cart

Crazy Carts aren’t too complicated. They’re just a driven wheel up front, with casters making everything slide. It follows that theoretically you could make a crazy cart out of any front-wheel-drive vehicle. At least, that’s what Hoonigan is trying at the moment.
