Volvo's naming system is not really confusing.
S is for sedan, V is for Wagon, XC is for Crossovers
40 is small car, 60 is medium size, 80 is large
50 and 70 are wagons.
Seems pretty simple to me.
Don't forget C for coupe.
I guess maybe the only confusing thing is the v50 is just a wagon s40.. maybe v40 would be less confusing?
