I like what Volvo is doing. After a long period of curious choices and mostly uninspired cars, Volvo has made a few nods towards vehicles that are simultaneously competitive and unique (as opposed to neither). The Volvo S60 R-Design may be the best example of this.
Ok, so the US won't get the wagon (just yet). You can wait until you do, or go for the S60 or the XC60 R-Design with the T6 turbo with 329 horsepower and 328 foot-pounds of torque. R-Design Volvos are good looking cars.
The 2011 Volvo S60 and V60 Sportswagon get the R-Design treatment — not to be confused with the regular "R treatment" or anything that adds substantial performance. Their Chinese overlords are happy enough with suspension tweaks and aesthetic unimprovements.
