Honouring its commitment to offering an electrified version of every model in its range, the Volvo XC90 has been updated for 2020 with a new B5 mild-hybrid powertrain that sees the familiar 2.0-litre twin-turbodiesel joined by a 10kW electric motor powered by a 48V battery. Read our review to see if the XC90 B5 makes for a worthy update.
The Volvo XC40 Recharge is the Swedish firm's first fully-electric car, and it kickstarts a process of introducing a Recharge option for every model in the Volvo range.
The new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of Volvo's well-received XC40 SUV is available to order now, with prices starting from £40,905.
The new Volvo S60 ushers in not just a new take on the premium executive saloon, but also a couple of brand firsts: it's the first Volvo to be produced in a new facility in South Carolina, but is also the first new Volvo to be launched without the option of a diesel engine, part of the company's drive towards electrification.
The Volvo XC40, already our favourite compact SUV, has received a number of equipment and powertrain upgrades.
I have a dream. A fairly modest dream, admittedly. It's that one day, we'll all stop buying SUVs. I modestly suggest that we might turn to the humble estate car instead, and if you're one of those who genuinely need all-wheel-drive, Volvo's new V60 Cross Country could be all the car you'll ever need.
The Volvo XC90 has been refreshed for the 2020 model year. The bigger news, however, is the arrival of a series of mild-hybrid engine options wearing a new 'B' badge.

I guess you could say the Volvo V60 is the company's spiritual heartland; the premium family wagon. The thing is, there's a reason we all used to buy estate cars, one we hope people remember before too long - they offer all the practicalities of an SUV, but with none of the downsides.
Building on its long-running expertise in rugged, off-road capable family estate cars, Volvo has unveiled the latest addition to the line-up, the new V60 Cross Country.
Reflecting the continuing fall in popularity of diesel, Volvo has made its T5 petrol engine available in its S90 saloon, V90 estate and XC90 SUV ranges.
I'm a fan of the Volvo XC60, the new XC40's bigger brother. Trouble is, it's a little pricey. Not surprising, then, that my interest was well and truly piqued when the XC40 slotted in well below it. So, I ordered one. And then so did about 80,000 other people. Here's why.
