    For decades, boxy Volvo wagons carried families and their golden retrievers to canoeing trips and East Coast colleges. Over the years, safety remained a defining pillar for the brand, but Volvo culled wagons from its U. Now the V60 brings the Volvo wagon back to America. All three cars are sized more for small families or couples hauling around outdoorsy gear, rather than being sedan-based moving vans.
