When Chinese automaker Geely bought up Volvo, they were quick to divest the Swedish automaker from any remaining ties with former owner Ford. This included offing popular models like the Volvo V60 station wagon, a staple of Volvo’s fleet for decades. But the Volvo wagon is back in a big, beautiful way, with both a sporty R-version and a super-efficient plug-in hybrid model on its way to U.S. shores.

On display at the New York Auto Show is the new Volvo V60 wagon and its variants, including the turbocharged, fun-to-drive R-version and the diesel-powered plug-in hybrid, which was nominated, but did not win, the 2013 World Green Car award (more on that later).
