A crossover to cover all bases.

Volvo has always created versatile vehicles. From the early days of the sporty-yet-practical PV444/544 models through the surprisingly fleet-footed 240 Turbo sedans and station wagons, there’s never been a shortage of practicality, or athleticism, from Göteborg. The 2012 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD could be the poster child for practical versatility – the ultimate 21st century crossover vehicle.

Let’s Trade Keys
Equity, high residual values and a $1,000 Loyalty Bonus make this a great time to trade


If you've made investments in the stock market or in real estate over the last three or four years, you're probably questioning your own logic. But many drivers of Volvos less than five years old don't realize that they may have a significantly higher equity position in their cars than they might think.

The Volvo Saved my Life Club
Another story from someone fortunate to be alive – and have their Volvo to thank.

Photo: The Volvo Saved my Life Club
This past February, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that an estimated 24,050 fatalities occurred as a result of motor vehicles traffic crashes during the first nine months of 2011.
