2018 Volvo XC60 D5 R-Design review

See the full article here I want one. That’s the overwhelming thought that has stuck in my mind after driving the 2018 Volvo XC60 D5 R-Design. It’s a big call for the new-generation Volvo XC60, considering what else is available in this market space. There are plenty of accomplished names, like the Mercedes GLC, BMW X3 and Audi Q5...

2018 Volvo XC60 review

Read the full article here. It’s hard to understate the importance of this new-generation 2018 Volvo XC60. It’s the car that replaces the best-seller in the brand’s range, which had its best year of sales in the last year of its production. It is vital, then, that this thing be not only good, but good enough to help boost those sales even further...

2017 Volvo XC90 Excellence review

The 2017 Volvo XC90 Excellence is the most expensive and exclusive Volvo ever made – but is the best XC90 actually the best XC90? James takes a look at the 4-seat, 300kW, hybrid limo.  ...

2018 BMW X3 xDrive30i v Volvo XC60 T6 R Design comparison

You’ve got about $80,000 to spend on a mid-sized luxury SUV, but is it best to go the traditional German route or take the alternative Swedish path?

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...

Luxury diesel sedan comparison: Audi A6 v Mercedes-Benz E220d v Volvo S90

The new-all Volvo S90 and next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class take on Audi's A6 to see which is the king of European plus-sized diesel sedan. It turns out that there's much more to play for in this segment beyond big legroom and low fuel bills...

Volvo to skip 2019 Geneva motor show

Volvo Cars has joined a growing list of manufacturers pushing away from motor shows, instead focusing on more closely-tailored events showcasing its new products. The first casualty is the 2019 Geneva motor show, with no word on whether it'll appear at the 2018 Paris motor show this October...

Volvo expects a third of its cars to be autonomous by 2025

Volvo has laid out “operational ambitions" for electrification, self-driving and subscription services, which it hopes to achieve by 2025. As previously announced, the Chinese-owned automaker hopes to generate half its annual sales from pure-electric vehicles (EV) by 2025.

2011 Volvo S60 T5 review

It is totally a coincidence when buying this 2011 Volvo S60 T5 that I used to own an entry-level 2009 Volvo S40 diesel, which came with a leather but uncomfortable seat and Bluetooth only for phone calls. So, when I was looking for a larger car, Volvo wasn’t really on my option list...

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...
