2015 Volvo S60 Polestar Speed Date

I've been driving the Volvo S60 Polestar over the last two days, simply commuting from home to the office — a distance of around 20 kilometres each way. The route is mostly slow moving, with the occasional opportunity to punch it for short bursts.

V8 Supercars and the real world

The end of the 2014 V8 Supercars season is almost upon us, following a cracking (and controversial) Bathurst 1000 that saw Ford win for the second year in a row and Nissan claim its first podium finish in the great race since the Skyline GT-R’s infamous 1992 victory...

2015 Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Review

The Volvo S60 Polestar is back for a third time in Australia. This time though it has a wagon sibling, the V60 Polestar.

Luxury Sedan Comparison Final Round : Mercedes-Benz C-Class v BMW 3 Series v Volvo S60

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class was Australia’s favourite luxury car in 2013. Perhaps a more impressive fact, however, is that Stuttgart’s mid-sized model outsold every mainstream medium car except the Camry and Mazda 6. It’s fair, then, to call this a significant volume car – as is its decades-old arch enemy, the BMW 3 Series, which matched that last feat...

Luxury Sedan Comparison Final Round : Mercedes-Benz C-Class v BMW 3 Series v Volvo S60

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class was Australia’s favourite luxury car in 2013. Perhaps a more impressive fact, however, is that Stuttgart’s mid-sized model outsold every mainstream medium car except the Camry and Mazda 6. It’s fair, then, to call this a significant volume car – as is its decades-old arch enemy, the BMW 3 Series, which matched that last feat...

Luxury Sedan Comparison Round Two : Infiniti Q50 v Lexus IS v Volvo S60

The Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class accounted for three-quarters of their segment’s sales in 2013, though that still meant one in four buyers looking for a mid-sized luxury car priced above $60,000 wanted something non-German. We had this factoid in mind when we decided to do something a bit different with our plan to compare the new-generation C-Class just released...

Audi S4 v Volvo S60 Polestar : Comparison Review

Performance sedans come in various degrees of hardcore, and the Audi S4 and Volvo S60 Polestar aim to play in a middle ground sweet spot. They are more premium than our home-grown FPV and HSV sports sedans, yet aren’t quite as focused as the German trio of BMW M3, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and Audi’s own RS5 Sportback...

The new-generation 2019 Volvo S60 has been revealed today, but an Australian debut for the premium new sedan is still to be confirmed.

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 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...

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...

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...
