Stop thinking of Volvo as the maker of clunky old brown station wagons. The Volvo V90 Cross Country is stunning.
If you’re anything like me, you think SUVs are purpose-built to define drivers as kid-ferrying lemmings. Why can’t you have the ability to haul kids, but the practicality of style and occasional off-road ability. That’s what the people at Volvo and Mercedes-Benz thought when they created the Volvo V90 Cross Country and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class […]

We got things dirty in the 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country, had some high-speed fun in the 2017 Bugatti Chiron, and learned that 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350 owners are suing Ford.

Americans have made it clear. We don't like wagons anymore and haven't for quite some time. That makes it hard for automakers to justify building them despite enthusiasts screaming and running with pitchforks. This, of course, presents a problem for an automaker like Volvo, whose history is tied to the wagon. It's also why the Cross Country series...
