Volvo is known for building unique cars, and now, after years of decline, sales are on the rise in America. Since day one, the new Geely-Volvo plan has been consistent for five years: to launch new engines, new technical solutions and brand new models.

In the U.S. sales are up nearly 20 percent over (October) 2014, and the first new car of the new model program — the all-new Volvo XC90 — first became the 2016 Motor Trend SUV of the Year in November, then on January 11 it was picked as the 2016 North American Truck/Utility of the Year at the Auto Show in Detroit.
