Maybe more than any other automaker, Volvo is synonymous with wagons. We’re talking European-style wagons, mind you, not the massive Country Squires that once roamed America’s highways. Volvo wagons from the 1980s symbolized Euro sophistication, a certain aspirational price, and the automaker’s obsession with innovative safety features. Today, Volvo offers three wagon models in the U.S., including the 2023 Volvo V60 Recharge. The others, the V60 Cross Country and larger V90 Cross Country, have a taller ride height and a different all-wheel-drive system that give them modest off-road ability.
