After repeated denials that it would do so, some as recently as last week, Volvo today announced it would in fact be bringing the V60 sports wagon to the U.S.
The company didn't reveal many details about the car American buyers will be offered but did say the car will go on sale in early 2014.
The Volvo V60 R-Design trim level is on display at the 2013 New York International Auto Show through April 7 and gives consumers a look at the more aggressively styled version of the wagon. Volvo says the rear seats fold in a 40/20/40 split but otherwise didn't provide much information about the product that is currently on sale in Europe.
We expect powertrains to be similar to what is offered in the popular S60 sedan.
More photos of the V60 are below.
