The first Volvo car rolled off the line in Göteborg, Sweden in 1927 and the first truck followed the next year.

Volvo Car Co. was sold to Ford Motor Company in 1999 for a reported $6.45 billion.
Volvo Sedan Reviews
Volvo's S60 R-Design looks great, it’s sleek and luxurious inside, handles like a true sports sedan and… it’s from Sweden?
Volvo has finally built a genuine competitor to its German rivals and has even managed to keep the brand’s distinct identity intact. The only issue will be attracting buyers to this more engaging Volvo considering the automaker’s decades-old reputation for building solid and safe, and therefore dull, automobiles.
Often overlooked, the turbocharged five-cylinder R-Design Volvo S40 delivers most of what you’d expect from a European sports sedan and while there is no rear-drive option, an excellent AWD setup makes it both surefooted and fun.
Volvo Crossover Reviews

Volvo SUV Reviews

Volvo Luxury Car Reviews
Safety, speed and stunning looks highlight this Swedish sport-sedan, which isn’t far from the sweet spot in a segment dominated by German rivals.
Volvo Coupe Reviews
A solid offering in standard trim, luxury options elevate the S60 from being cross-shopped with a mid-size sedan to challenging some luxury rivals.
Volvo Convertible Reviews
With so many luxury convertibles on the market, Ken Glassman outlines the many reasons to consider the Volvo C70… last.
