Mercedes-Benz E220d All Terrain v Volvo V90 Cross Country comparison

If you're anything like me, you think SUVs are purpose-built to define drivers as kid-ferrying lemmings. Why can't you have the ability to haul kids, but the practicality of style and occasional off-road ability. That's what the people at Volvo and Mercedes-Benz thought when they created the Volvo V90 Cross Country and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain...

VIDEO: 2019 Volvo V60 teased, full reveal on Feb 21

Volvo has teased its latest load-lugging wagon, the V60, in a video highlighting its long history of creating practical family cars.

2019 Volvo V60 leaked ahead of Feb 21 debut

Two images published on AutoMotoSvijet – an automotive site in Bosnia and Herzegovina – show the new mid-size wagon from its rear three-quarter and profile views.

2013 Volvo XC60 T6 R-Design review

I’ve never been a big fan of SUVs so they were never on my shopping list but my wife’s constant lobbying to replace her Golf GTI with something bigger and more family-friendly forced me to take a closer look. I (and my wife) prefer our cars to have a bit of go, so any slow and wheezy naturally aspirated petrol or turbo-diesel four cylinder SUV just wasn’t going to cut it...

2007 Volvo S80 V8 AWD review

One day, while driving past my local Volvo dealer (in my brother's long-term-loan V70), I spotted a black sedan in the forecourt. “That's an S80, you don't see many of them,” and “that's pretty cheap ($25K)," I thought to myself. The next time I went to the dealer for a service, I had a good look at the black sedan...

2015 Volvo XC60 T5 Luxury review

This is a follow up to my first review of the 2015 Volvo XC60 T5, published in late 2015 when I had owned the car for just 10 days. This model is actually an MY15.5. If anything, I like the car even better. After almost 33,000km, nothing has gone wrong. I change oil every 7500km, which is a bit pricey. Fuel consumption is okay...

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 R-Design Hybrid review

Let me start by getting my bias out on the table. I love Volvos. I grew up on Sydney's North Shore where Volvos are the family car of choice. I also learnt to drive in a 2002 Volvo V70XC and have since owned three Volvos before this one. This Volvo however, is different. Very different. It's the first of the new direction for Volvo as a genuine rival to the German luxury brands...
