You can't beat European car-makers when it comes to making good-looking cars. We saw Hyundai's cars at the SEMA show and now take a look at Volvo.

Wowowowow

Now i really need to give Volvo's tuning division a look everytime they launch a car. Seriously, can't believe they are volvo's. Low slung, mean and totally cool.

That V40 Sedan probably is gonna be one car to watch out for. It really might shake things out in Europe if it does go into production. And maybe the heads at M and AMG division are gonna roll if this car does come out.

Watch this space.

The red car, XC90 is it? Supposedly makes 650bhp from a twin turbocharged V8. Don't have much information about the others, but they are definitely head turners. Just look at those DTM wheels.
But take a proper look at the yellow sticker on the XC90, Prancing Moose!

Ford - PAG - Jaguar - Aston - Land Rover - Volvo. Get the connection?
Besides, Volvo is the only profit making division of the PAG. So why not try out something new?

personally I would prefer a volvo over a mercedes. Its more comfortable and more safe.

Lookswise they need to improve though.

I've always loved swedish cars.... volvo and saabs..... I guess they are part of the eilte group of european cars... such as mercs, audi, volkswagen, etc. ..... They are very reliable similar to the japanese manufacturers and being reputed european company..... we can trust them on good looks and good handling...

SUV looks tough... the car is simply sexy

introduced the 3 point seat belts... and lot of other saftey equipment
