C30.  The Volvo C30 is a near-luxury car coupe designed by the Volvo division of Ford's Premier Automotive Group. Volvo  C30 is a three-door, four-seat hatchback, powered by I4 and I5 engines. Despite the name, the car is the hatchback / coupe version of the S40/V50/C70 luxury vehicle range and C30 uses the same Ford C1 platform as its siblings.

S40. This S40 sedan will be Volvo's first real attempt to compete with German entry level luxury sedans. This S40 rides on the Volvo P24 (Ford EUCD) platform. A Volvo manager stated that the next generation of S40 will replace both the current S40 and the S60 sedan and will grow in size (over 4.5 m).

V50. The Volvo V50 is the station wagon / estate version of the Volvo S40 small family car, produced by the Swedish automaker Volvo Cars and based on the Volvo P1 platform. Volvo Cars Special Vehicle produced a concept car as well, based on the V50, the V50 SV, whose engine produces 340 hp (179 kW), and debuted in 2004.

S60Volvo S60 is a compact executive car built by Volvo. It was first introduced in 2000, superseding the Volvo S70, using the Volvo P2 platform, which is shared with the Volvo V70 (until MY 08), Volvo S80 (until MY 07) and Volvo XC90. It was one of the first "curvy Volvos" designed by Peter Horbury and appropriately used the line "Revolvolution" in the advertising campaign. The model was refreshed in 2004 and the S60 currently comes in a variety of trim lines, from the relatively austere 2.5T to the limited edition S60R. A new generation of S60 will arrive for the 2009 or 2010 model year.

C70. The Volvo C70 is a luxury cabriolet, available in convertible and coupé versions with a choice of manual or automatic transmission. The new C70 model was launched on 13 April 2006, on the Ford C1 plaform used also in the S40. This C70 vehicle, designed by John Kinsey and built by Pininfarina, is a coupé convertible with a three piece retractable metal hardtop that can raise or lower in less than 30 seconds. The new C70 replaces both the current cabriolet/convertible and the coupé absent from Volvo's lineup since 2003 and for the first time, the C70 will feature a normally-aspirated gasoline engine, as well as diesel engines with variable geometry turbocharger and common-rail direct injection.

V70. The third generation V70 was officially unveiled by Volvo on 2 February 2007.  Developed to be a slightly more up-market car than the previous model, it remains the same size, though the rear-seat legroom is increased by two centimetres and a revised tailgate design increases the load area volume by 55 litres.

XC70.  The offroad vehicle of the V70 lineup is the XC70. It's a V70 with a slight ground clearance lift  along with sturdy plastic body cladding in the front, on the sides, and on the back of the vehicle. The highest-performance version of the Volvo V70 model lineup is the V70R, it has a turbocharged 300 hp engine and a rear spoiler.

S80. In January, 2006, Volvo unveiled the second generation S80 with generally all substantially upgraded  features of the car. The new S80 features a new 3.2 L straight-6 or 4.4 L V8 engine in combination with available four-wheel drive. The 2nd-generation of S80 is the first Volvo sedan model to become available with Volvo's compact, transversely fitted V8 with a  315 horsepower output(234.8 kw) and 440 nm of torque.

XC90. The Volvo XC90 is a mid-size luxury crossover SUV produced by Swedish automaker Volvo Cars since 2003. XC90 is based on the Volvo P2 platform, shared with the Volvo S80 and other larger Volvo cars. It is Volvo's top-selling vehicle in the US accounting for roughly 25% of the company's sales and worldwide with 85,994 cars sold in 2005.
