Volvo Car USA just reported sales figures for September, and the brand is up more than 10 percent from the same month last year. That continues the annual growth that has sales up nearly a third from this time in 2017.

"In a challenging market, Volvo’s sales remained strong," said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO, Volvo Car USA.

That means sales of 8,715 vehicles in September, up 10.3 percent from September 2017. For the year that's 73,929 vehicles sold. Up an impressive 29,8 percent from the first nine months of 2017.

Driving those sales were the XC60 crossover. That model sold 3,406. Next up was the bigger crossover, the XC90, hitting 2,484.

Though those crossovers did well, not every model saw growth. The S60 sedan, for example, is down 47 percent from the same month last year. And the S90 dropped by 39 percent to just 529 units sold. Even the XC90 was down almost 500 cars. But growth from the wagons and the new XC60, plus 1,104 sales for the new XC40, made up the shortfall and then some.
