Today, most wagons are luxury-brand wagons. By our count, there’s just one non-luxury, non-crossover wagon available for sale in the U.S., and that’s the Volkswagen Jetta.

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.

2017 Volvo XC90 Excellence

2016 new York Auto ShowIt seems manufacturers just can’t find the price ceiling on high-end SUVs. Yet they dutifully continue to try.

Introduced at the New York Auto Show was Volvo’s attempt at finding that ceiling: the XC90 Excellence, which reaches to the lofty price height of … $104,900. And we’re not even sure that includes destination.

198? Volkswagen Scirocco

Apart from being the home of Consumer Guide Automotive, Lincolnwood, Illinois is a rather ordinary municipality. Adjacent to Chicago’s Northwest Side, Lincolnwood is a middle-income community of 12,000 citizens, most of whom appear to be in their seventies. I intend to retire someplace with less traffic, but I digress.
