Just read in the new Automobile mag that the new wagon version of the "R" will be called the V60R but everyone else, Car and Driver, Motor Trend, is calling it the V70R. Who is right here?<p>Does Volvo have any plans on changing the wagon name from V70 to V60 in the future?<p>Thanks,<p>Ron

It's going to be V70R. All Saloons will have an even number with wagons having odd numbers (ie. S40, S60, S80, V50, V70)

You mean all wagons and SUVs will have odd numbers, ie XC90.<p>Wasn't sure if Automobile had the type or if everyone else did.<p>Thanks,<p>Ron

That's funny that Autobild printed them already, but I guess they're not going to get in any trouble being who they are. The V70R I have is ugly green also, and while I haven't been over to Volvospy yet, I'd bet it's the same car. <p>Regardless, we're lower on the food chain than Autobild. I don't want to compromise my position with Volvo. They're kind enough to get us the pics early for production purposes so that I can have them the moment we're allowed. So.... Thursday it is. <p>BTW, looks like the brake calipers have the R logo on them. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> There's a teaser for you...not much of a teaser...but a teaser.

Re: V70R or V60R? (GrecianVolvo)

Info and pics are now live on the front page. I have a few more updates to make to the site this week, but that'll have to do until tomorrow as it is wayyyy too late to bother finishing it now.
