Volvo Cars looks forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, which will mark the first public showing of its new V60 premium estate.

Volvo Car UK played a large part in this success, recording its second-highest sales volumes in 25 years, with 46,139 cars sold, and a market share increase from 1.73% to 1.83%.
