A Volvo Compact Crossover May Soon Cruise Michigan Avenue

It's no secret the compact crossover segment of the automobile market is steadily growing. According to Automotive News, Volvo's CEO has announced plans to introduce a compact crossover to the U.S. market within the next three years. Under its new Chinese ownership, Volvo has seen quite a turn-around in sales, and they've recently returned to profitability.

Much of this newfound success is attributed to the XC90, the automakers newest 7-passenger crossover. In February of 2016, the XC90 was the best-selling Volvo in the United States. It has been the driving growth factor in all global regions. Volvo has already promised a V90 wagon and a S90 full-size luxury sedan to follow in the XC90's footsteps in the near future. The future just keeps getting brighter for Volvo.

The secrets behind Volvo's amazing lineup are premium design, quality, unique features and exclusive architecture. They are able to produce a great selection of vehicles with a variety of powertrains on just two platforms. The upcoming V90 and S90 will be built on the same platform as the XC90, and will be available with either a conventional gasoline engine or as a plug-in hybrid.

The automaker's smaller Compact Modular Architecture is what they use to build the entire 40 series lineup that includes a sedan, crossover and wagon. The V40 sedan, V40 wagon and XC40 crossover have also been slated for sale in the U.S. All three will be available in gasoline or plug-in hybrid models. Volvo says they are expecting to release several all-electric models in 2019 as part of their electrification strategy, but they haven't yet announced which vehicles will be going all-electric.
