      The VW Golf SportWagon, 3 series and Merc's E series are all selling well in the U.S: Volvo already have the V60 and now the V90. Even if that report may well highlight a U.S
      resistance there's...

      I think a new S60 will still make good sales though despite AMT as standard. It all depends on how Volvo design the car, hopefully with a lot more space than before.

      U.S might be the number 1 market for Volvo but Europe have yet to see the point of small sedans; young professions are going for hatchbacks, either 3 or 5 door. Like VW's Golf, Audi A3,
      SEAT Leon,...

      I think Volvo have done a brilliant job!I like the hatchback design; it reiterates the old 300 series and 400 series.
      Volvo wouldn't need to do an S40 given the S60 size being too near.

      Volvo cars had considered a sub-brand before. I remember reading about it years ago before Ford took over. They played about with the idea of "Viking" as a sub-brand, so the "L" meaning "Larson" ...

      I don't know. I like the S40 and I liked the last one. The absence of the V40 in the U.S allowed Mazda to recoup more 323/3 sales with the Ford Focus platform as well as Ford's own
