REVIEW: 2019 Volvo XC60 Polestar Engineered

The Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered is the top of the tree in the Volvo XC60 range. It blends luxury with performance and aims to offer buyers an extremely efficient plug-in hybrid system that doubles as a sporty SUV. Timecodes: One minute wrap: 0:53 Exterior: 2:15 Bonnet: 2:37 On the road: 3:39 Interior: 8:06...

Range Review: Volvo XC40, XC60, XC90

No Russian-doll design approach here – or ‘bricks’; just three SUVs sharing obvious design DNA while also forging their own distinct styling paths. Bringing these three Volvos together simply reinforces our views from both individual tests and comparisons: this is a formidable line-up with impressive consistency of quality, whether you’re looking at design, materials, safety, or engineering...

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...

Range Review: 2019 Volvo XC40, XC60, XC90

Volvo Cars registered record sales in 2018, making it Australia’s fastest-growing luxury brand. That was with a showroom comprising 10 vehicles, yet the Swedish brand expects to sell more models in 2019 with just four vehicles after a major culling process. Gone from local (though not most overseas) showrooms are the S90 large sedan, V40 hatchback and its higher-riding twin, the V40 Cross Country...

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?

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...

2021 Volvo Xc60 T8 Phev Polestar (AWD) review

There is no getting away from the fact that a Volvo XC60 Polestar is not a cheap car. However, having made the decision to spend the money it is hard to think of many other vehicles on the Australian market that offer the same level and balance of performance, comfort and economy in the real world...

2010 Volvo XC60 D5 review

Decisions, decisions, what to buy? I have my little Italian sports car and it goes great. I have owned many brands of cars over about 40 years, but I keep coming back to Alfa's. There is something magic about them. It's like they are a part of the family, and not just a form of transport. But I digress. This is about a Volvo...

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...

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...
