Ch-Ch-Changes: 2011 Volvo Lineup

2011 Volvo S60
For 2011, Volvo’s lineup gets a little more streamlined, losing and simplifying its wagon options and dropping some base trims, engines and drivetrains. As you can see below, these changes mostly increase the value of each Volvo model and trim. 

Interesting notes: While Volvo has discontinued the slow-selling V70 wagon for 2011, it has drastically changed the pricing and packaging of the more popular XC70, making the model several thousand dollars cheaper; the high-end S80 is now a less-expensive entry than the all-new S60, which is odd considering the S80 is supposedly the flagship. You can learn more about the all-new S60 here. For more information about the lineup, continue reading after the jump.

2011 Volvo S40

"All-wheel drive and manual transmission options have been discontinued"


The S40 just lost all of it's appeal.

Wow.. Its really an interesting news to know that Volvo have improved its quality in every sphere for 2011 models.
I'm thankful to this post which contained detailed description of coming Volvo.

The XC60 T6 really hasn't changed in price - the moonroof is now included as a standard option.

Volvo XC70 is everything, both bad and good. It has flawless safety yet some of its unique features seem like overkill. It’s cheaper compared to other luxury sedan models yet it has looks and performance that is conservative as its safety.
