Volvo V90 Wagon : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Read the article here. The new 2017 Volvo V90 wagon has been unveiled ahead of its official debut at the Geneva motor show in a few weeks time. Today’s reveal puts an end to the near constant trickle of leaks, which stretches back as far as October 2015 when photos of scale models of the car popped up in China...

2016 Volvo XC90 D5 Momentum Review

Read the article here. The outgoing Volvo XC90 was the biggest selling model for the Swedish brand in most crucial markets and this all-new model is the first to be wholly released under the ownership of new Chinese owner Geely. Add to that the fact that the architecture on which the XC90 is based will drive future model development across the range, and it's fair to say the XC90 is a pretty important vehicle for Volvo...

Audi Q7 3.0TDI v Volvo XC90 D5 Inscription : Comparison review

Two giant releases on the large-SUV radar this year, the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90, seem intent on reshaping the seven-seater landscape with aligned vision and purpose. Surprising, perhaps, given how differently the Swedish and German brands have been traditionally perceived, but also how different this Big Boy pair are by all appearances viewed from 50 paces...

Luxury SUV Comparison: Audi Q5 v BMW X3 v Lexus NX v Volvo XC60

Considering luxury SUVs are big business, the Lexus NX can’t be accused of being rushed to market. It’s more than a decade since Toyota’s luxury division introduced its last new SUV, the GX that is a spruced-up Prado and never sold in Australia. You then have to go back into the 1990s for the (LandCruiser-based) LX and (Highlander-based) RX...

The mid-sized Volvo S60 sedan and V60 wagon will have to make do on their current level of charm and good looks, as there will be no more significant updates until a whole new car arrives.

Safety no longer an option with Volvo

When the all-new second-generation Volvo XC90 launched in 2015, many were surprised to see some of the much-touted safety technology available only as an optional fitment. IntelliSafe Assist, comprising adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assistance, lane departure mitigation and a forward collision warning, was previously available as a $2600 option or as part of a $4000 driver assistance package...

The much anticipated next-generation 2018 Volvo XC60 SUV is expected to arrive on local shores late next year, the company's Australian arm has confirmed with CarAdvice.

Its global debut occurred at the 2008 Geneva motor show, and Australian buyers got their first up-close look during the Sydney motor show (RIP) later that year...

2012 Volvo Xc70 D5 Review

After 118,000km's I am making way for a different kind of car for the family now, but figure it's worth a write up on the car finally. In order of the scores this site gets you to list; Performance and Economy I drove around 30,000kms per year, with about 90% of that at between 80 - 110km/h. It averaged around 7.2L/km (6.9L/km freeway and 7...

2013 Volvo S60 T5 Luxury Review

Reliable, safe and good low down torque when pushed. Spacious and fuel economy on highway is 5.9 litres per 100 The interior quality is second to none no squeaks or rattles and servicing costs are very reasonable now having completed 35,000km of trouble free motoring. The noticeable thing is slight wind noise from the side mirrors at speed...

2016 Volvo Xc90 D5 2.0 Inscription Review

Two months in and it has been an amazing car so far. Unbelievably quiet and performs very well around town and on the highway. Plenty of grip and we have just come back from 400km in the country, much of gravel roads which it stuck to like glue. The systems are easy to work and access though you need to remember to keep your eyes on the road and not get to wrapped up in them...

2015 Volvo S60 Polestar Review

Having owned a Mazda MPS 6 for 10 years, I reluctantly decided it was time for an upgrade. I say reluctantly because the MPS 6 was a brilliant car, a real drivers car with superb performance and quality. This is my first Volvo and so far i'm very impressed. The finish and build quality is excellent, as is the long list of standard features and inclusions...
