What’s more, to get any sort of volume in the US the S90 would actually have to sell at least as well as its V70/XC70 sibling, which seems unlikely given that those models represent the concentrated essence of Volvo in the US. But, time will tell – we’ll be giving you updates throughout 2016.… Continue Reading …
