    Volvo

    Oh wow! So before Volvo goes all electric!

    There is one more series of S4O and now an XC40.

    I might have to wait on my next purchase to check these out as a commuter.

    The S40 almost looks like the modern Camaro.

    The XC40 reminds me of the Jeep Renegade but much nicer.

    I think they are super thin and flip 90 degrees on power up.

    I hope those are the stock tires? Should be fun to watch people drive in a typical I70 Sunday blizzard on those.

    Reminds me of a slightly toned-down BMW i3.

    "Mostly" Chinese owned. Still Swedish design.

    I can't believe the seats in the Mazda would be as plush.

    The XC 60 sedan is such a stupid fucking car. "Hey, let's jack up this sedan!"

    Given how well small SUV / crossover things sell here, we are getting at least the xc.

    I still see lots of those around the northeast. They sold really well and people sure do seem to love them.

    Here it is. Iím kinda meh, but might check it out, depending on price point.

    Honestly, it does look like a great commuter if it has traditional Volvo leather. The suv suspension is almost a necessity on the streets of DC these days.

    I do have to say the air vents look like they came out of an Oldsmobile. But hey! They have subwoofers in them. Far out man!
