The 2015 Volvo V60 wagon wouldn't normally be such a big deal, except that it's the first "real" Volvo wagon to be sold in the U.S. in a few years, after the Swedish automaker canceled its last conventional wagon and went all-in on crossover utility vehicles.

Jeep will use the Geneva Motor Show in March to launch the latest addition to its Cherokee range--the Cherokee Diesel. Hurrah!
