Care by Volvo Comes to Canada With the Promise of Winter Tires Care by Volvo Comes to Canada With the Promise of Winter Tires

Care by Volvo, Volvo’s subscription program that was off to a rocky start here in the U.S., has expanded to Canada as of this week. The setup there is slightly different than what we have here, but it includes winter tires. Sounds pretty ace to me.

The 2019 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered Has 416 HP but the R-Design Feels Like the Real Sports Sedan The 2019 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered Has 416 HP but the R-Design Feels Like the Real Sports Sedan

The Volvo S60 has always been kind of an oddball choice for a midsize luxury sedan. It’s nice, it’s comfortable, it does things differently than your average BMW or Audi, but it also doesn’t really stand out in a major way. But the 2019 Volvo S60 is all-new, and now it aims to be more of a true sport sedan than ever.

We’ve been talking about Lynk & Co, the new Geely/Volvo venture to sell cars and SUVs and crossovers by not really selling them at all, for a couple of years now.

Quick Question: Why Can't I Stop Thinking About Volvo Rebadging a Camaro in the 1970s? Quick Question: Why Can't I Stop Thinking About Volvo Rebadging a Camaro in the 1970s?

Like many people, there’s a part of my brain that unconsciously stores visually similar things. That’s why we can see faces in bathroom sinks and also why I’ve always thought that the 1969-1975 Volvo 164 looks strangely similar to the 1972 Chevrolet Camaro. I kept thinking about it this morning, so instead of taking…

After inventing the first production three-point seatbelt in 1959, Volvo’s focus on safety only intensified, especially since just having the seatbelt there was no guarantee that anyone would use it. The company also anticipated many safety features that are standard today, most fantastically this backup camera on its…

Self-driving autonomous concepts are all the rage these days, with Volvo introducing its 360c concept last week and Mercedes unveiling its own yesterday, while GM came out with their own phoned in version earlier this year.

Here's How Volvo's 'Special Safety Blanket' Would Work Here's How Volvo's 'Special Safety Blanket' Would Work

Yesterday (or two days ago, or two lifetimes ago, it’s hard for me to tell since I’m in Europe and still jet-lagged) Volvo introduced an autonomous, electric concept car called the 360c that included “a special safety blanket” for when you were horizontal and sleeping. Come again?

Volvo wants to have an autonomous car that you can “eat, sleep, do whatever” in by 2021, an aggressive target but one illustrative of the company’s desire to skip over Level 3 altogether and go straight to full autonomy. Today, it showed off a concept car called the 360c that reveals a bit more about how it plans to…

Volvo Wants to Make Its Non-RWD Cars Feel More Like RWD Cars Volvo Wants to Make Its Non-RWD Cars Feel More Like RWD Cars

Volvo’s Polestar performance division came up with a new software update to give its all-wheel-drive cars a rear bias, by increasing torque distribution to the rear wheels. Another, perhaps less complicated, way to increase rear bias would have been to make rear-wheel-drive trim options, but this is fine too.

Kyle Long’s 1966 Volvo 122S wagon would be cool enough on its own, given that he swapped in the more modern five-cylinder engine from a 1995 Volvo 850. The week after finishing it, he took his freshly swapped wagon on a 7,000-mile cross-country road trip, where he’s well on his way to legendary status after already…
