2017 Volvo S90

The all-new S90 replaces the S80 as Volvo’s flagship sedan for 2017. Behind its “Thor’s Hammer” (Volvo’s term) LED headlights resides a choice of turbocharged or turbocharged/supercharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines putting out 250 and 316 horsepower, respectively. The midsize S90 is going on sale now at prices starting around $48,000.

Scion iMPerhaps it says something about the near-invisibility of your current entry when market-share aspirations for its redesigned replacement are … five percent. But that’s the rather modest goal Volvo has established for the 2017 S90, which replaces the aged S80 as the company’s flagship sedan.

In which states are you most likely to see this in your rearview mirror? Read on.

1957 Buick Caballero

by Frank Peiler

Station wagons are really getting hot in the old car hobby, probably because most of the collectible hardtops and convertibles have already been taken. Sure, there are still plenty of two- and four-door sedans from the 50s and 60s, but these cars are just too dull for most folks in the hobby. Station wagons, on the other hand, can still be found here and there, but most have lived hard lives and usually need complete and costly restorations.
