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...

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...

2009 Volvo V70 T6 review

Back in 2012 I specifically ordered an XC70 D5 after having had an XC90 D5 for 5 years. For me, the XC70 has just been a real marvel of a travel companion – I cover quite vast distances at times as I live in Tasmania but have a lot of rural clients all across our great country...
