cars and the adventures on which they take us



Volvo has just made the perfect car.

The world needs new shooting brakes.

Both standard height as cars, and raised-height as 3-door slick CUVs.

With AWD… on both variants, if you like.

Although, Volvo is calling this the Concept Estate… Estate wagons are synonymous with Station wagons… cars and previously horse-drawn wagons with more passenger capacity from a second row of seats. With cars like station wagons, or estate wagons, that usually means a second row of side doors…  

Shooting brake is the term for sporting vehicles that meld a coupe’s looks, and longer singular side doors, with a long roof and a rear gate.
