2014 Volvo Xc60 D5 R-design Review

I purchased a new XC60 MY 14 D5 R Design in November. I have previously owned top spec Land Cruisers, downsized to a diesel Territory and needed something with an even smaller footprint, but with room in the back for 3 granddaughters. Had a really good look at both the Audi Q3 and BMW X3...

2014 Volvo Xc60 T5 Luxury Review

Say “farväl" to your decades old opinion, because the Ghent built SUV from everyone’s favourite manufacturer is laudable in almost every respect. The 2013 Volvo XC60 T5 Luxury represents as an enormous turning point for the Swedish manufacturer; not only for it’s distinctively handsome, well-resolved exterior shell, but also the XC60’s magical combination of standard inclusions, throbbing 4 cylinder Ecoboost engine and it’s ability to dive into a corner with no less composure than your regular front-drive mid sizer...

2014 Volvo V40 T5 Cross Country Review

My wife bought a White T5 XC in June after 5.5 years of BMW X3 20D ownership. She looked at BMW X1, Audi Q3, Mercedes GLA and the Volvo. Initially fell in love with the looks of the Volvo to be honest. Shortlisted The GLA and Volvo - BMW expensive but cheap feeling, Audi - ugly and expensive. After driving both GLA and Volvo back to back chose Volvo on comfort, equipment and performance...

2012 Volvo Xc70 D5 Review

I bought my XC70 second hand - 18 months old and with the majority of the extended (5 year) warranty left on it. It was immaculate with 25,000km on it. I was in the market for an AWD (for snow and father-in-laws dirt driveway which is 10km long and is a regular mud-bowl), safe (2 kids - 2 and 4 yo), fuel efficient (900km/wk), large wagon (I sometimes sleep in the back so it needed to be 2m length) vehicle...

2013 VOLVO V40 T5 R-DESIGN Review

I've read many reviews/comparisons in the months prior to the purchase of my T5. There doesn't seem to be a lack of those who are keen to provide their opinion but advice is cheap. My review is based after parting with the $ to take car home. Before my purchase I tested the Lexus IS, VW Golf, BMW, Lexus IS and the MB250...

2011 VOLVO S60 T4 Review

Ok. I have rated this car pretty high. But you need to understand I looked for a car to fit my purpose. This one came top. Price: For the base model (T4) which I bought, the value is mind boggling. About the only thing I really wanted that didn't come standard was the navigation. Compared to its competitors, it is unbelievable that this car comes in under $50k...

2011 VOLVO C30 T5 S LIFESTYLE Review

I have owned this car for over 1 year, and found it to be good but not roomy enough. The doors are very heavy, the boot is very small. It handles well, but I would not buy another one even if they still made them, the resale is horrible on these cars. After having many Volvos this has got to be the worst. Don't get me wrong it runs well etc but it's for a certain market...

2011 VOLVO C30 1.6 DRIVE Review

I have owned my c30 Drive for just over a year and have done 28000km so far of faultless zero problem driving. I am very interested in the environmental credentials of cars and know how to drive efficiently. Consequently I have managed to achieve a brilliant AVERAGE economy of 3.8 litres per hundred for the last month of mixed urban and freeway use from a car that many of my friends think is a sports coupe...
