Volvo used the gathering in New York to confirm that it would add a new face to its crowd for the coming season in the form of the 2014 Volvo V60 Sports Wagon. Already a popular choice with European buyers, it was presented for the first time globally in its new R-Design guise.

Based on the S60 Sedan and due to arrive here sometime in early 2014, Volvo says the V60 will offer the same kind of sophisticated character and handling dynamics while providing significantly greater flexibility and versatility that will include a flat-folding 40/20/40 rear seat.

While the automaker was not ready to announce pricing or specifications for the 2014 V60 Sports Wagon, it's expected this newcomer will offer the same engine/transmission choices and front-/all-wheel drive configurations as the S60, as well as similar packaging on the various trim levels. It wasn't that long ago that Volvo was one of the key players in the U.S. wagon market. However the withdrawal of its V50 and V70 models late in the last decade effectively put the firm on the sidelines in this country. Based on our first look, it appears that Volvo is serious about wanting to get back in the game.
