I think it is indeed a blind-spot detector.

I'm undecided. Is it great or it isn't?

It's great because it's a Volvo wagon you don't have to make an excuse for.

It's not because it's not really a Volvo wagon. Wheres the load lugging ability?

I don't like the saggy nose, but that's about all I don't approve of. I don't mind that it's somewhat compact, as long as there's a V70 to be the load lugger wagon. What I really want is a return to proper R models, but then.. I would want that.

I think they're canceling wagon sales to the States, or something equally inadvisable.
What is Volvo without wagons?

A Chinese owned company (good for PR) that can't compete with the Germans.

They discontinued the V70 in the States. Because from the point that they introduced the V70 XC next to the V70 it has always sold much better.

With that in mind I think the V60 might do better in the States.
No I don't understand that either. Pulling the V70 back because the Americans rather have the XC model, and at the same time introducing a new V-model.

That's what Subaru did, as well.

It's all about Europe. Also, this isn't a conventional Volvo estate car.

That's ridiculous. I always prefer wagons to SUVs, and besides, what makes them think that a crossover/SUV would sell better than a wagon when Cadillac is introducing a CTS wagon, and Acura the TSX wagon? It's the next craze, I tell you! (I'm hoping.)

Yeah, I still haven't forgiven them for discontinuing the Legacy wagon and only giving us the Outback.

It probably won't, but it gives you euro-snobiness appeal. Which is important when trying to sell an expensive car.

The first images is a leaked brochure for dealers in the US and Canada.
Which states that the V70 will be pulled out in favour for a FWD XC70.

Whats not to like?

You forgot the confused looks on peoples' faces when you tell them it's a five. Always a winzip.
