2018-19 Volvo XC60 recalled

Volvo Car Australia has issued a recall for the 2018 and 2019 model-year XC60 SUV over concerns the optional power tailgate mightn't operate as intended in cold weather conditions. The manufacturer reports the tailgate lifting arms may freeze "under certain conditions in cold climates", which could also lead to an unusual noise, loss of function, or even the complete separation of the tailgate lifting arms.

2019 Volvo S60 teased ahead of June 20 reveal

Volvo Cars has teased the all-new S60, which will be revealed next week as part of inauguration proceedings for the company's new US factory. In a new video posted to the company's Facebook page, the brief teaser shows a quick top-down shot, then reveals the new S60's face – complete with a Polestar Engineered badge on the grille. The looks are no surprise, because it has a face to match the wagon-bodied V60 and bears a strong resemblance to the related XC60 SUV.

2018 Volvo XC60 to hit Australia late next year: All-new medium SUV on the way

The much anticipated next-generation 2018 Volvo XC60 SUV is expected to arrive on local shores late next year, the company's Australian arm has confirmed with CarAdvice. The XC60 badge hit local showrooms in 2009, after first appearing as a concept in 2007. Its global debut occurred at the 2008 Geneva motor show, and Australian buyers got their first up-close look during the Sydney motor show (RIP) later that year.
