The wagon’s heyday has come and gone, along with vinyl records, “Saturday Night Live,” and Prince. Yet these former industry royals refuse to disappear despite the powerful forces of time edging them to the fringes of relevancy. Volvo knows that crossovers and SUVs such as its new XC90 are the way of the future, but it went ahead and introduced the 2015 Volvo V60 wagon anyway. The Swedish brand’s nostalgic stubbornness proved to be to our advantage—we spent 23,354 miles living the wagon life, and we’re pleased to report that it lived up to the reputation Volvo built back in the glory days of rear-facing seats. But the best news is that with the V60’s next-generation powertrain and fresh-faced looks, kickin’ it old school doesn’t mean living in the past.
