Volvo S60 T5 AWD Review and Road Test

Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF When Volvo introduced the S60 in 2011, the Swedes advertised their mid-sized sedan as the naughtiest Volvo ever thanks to a 300HP turbocharged engine. While I'm sure former "R owners" would disagree, the S60 has met with sales success with over 18,000 units sold so far this year, a 14% increase over last year. In 2012 Volvo added a less powerful FWD model to the mix to cut the price of entry. For 2013 Volvo has further expanded the S60 line by adding a torque vectoring AWD system to the lightest S60. Volvo also tells us they have completely refreshed their T5 engine for 2013 and tweaked the transmission for the naughty Volvo's first retouch ahead of the rumored 2014 refresh. Huh? Yep, Volvo's gettin' down with the yearly refresh. Does that make the T5 AWD the naughtiest Volvo ever? We should get one thing straight right up front: no matter how many wheels get the power, little is going to make up for having 3/5ths of your weight on the front axle. While many reviews complain about the fact that the Audi A4′s engine is completely in-front of the front axle, it still has a better (54/46) weight balance than the S60 with the engine completely above the front axle. That being said, the S60′s chassis is well composed on all road surfaces and is perhaps one of the best FWD platforms currently on offer in America. Checking that AWD option box however turns the S60 into a different animal on the road delivering [literally] 96% of the performance of the S60 T6 for $6,700 less. In addition, putting the S60 on an engine diet means the T5 AWD weighs 200lbs less than the T6 AWD. When the road bends, the S60 T5 surprises with more handling prowess than its front heavy numbers would indicate. The primary reasons are the 235-width tires and Volvo's ABS system based torque vectoring software. Rather than using a limited slip differential, the Volvo system uses the ABS system to brake the inside wheels in corners to send power to the outside wheel. While the system is not as effective as the more expensive mechanical active diffs, it allows more rear end rotation than you would expect. The result is a car with extremely confident road manners in all driving situations. While the A4 can be more fun as it has a RWD bias, the A4 was less predictable and less composed on the back-country roads I frequent. Digsby IM, Email, and Social Networks in one easy to use application! http://digsby.com With a starting price of $33,750, the S60 T5 AWD is the bargain choice in this segment undercutting the A4 Quattro by $850 and the 328xi by $4,750. Adjusting for feature content, the S60 comes out further ahead at around $1,300 less than the Audi and between $4,200 and $5,800 less than the BMW (depending on content). Despite being the segment's value choice, I'd call the S60 T5 AWD my second choice in this segment behind the 328i and ahead of the A4 Quattro. The BMW's larger dimensions, sportier aspirations and impressive list of "techogadgetry" justify the 14% price jump in my mind. Audi's rough and underpowered engine combined with their complicated MMI infotainment system help push the king of AWD one notch down below the confidant smooth S60. If value factors into your decision-making, then the S60 is about two paddle shifters and a 5% better weight balance away from perfection. Until then the 328i reins supreme in this segment, but the T5 AWD is an excellent option if you're cheap like me.

Top 5 mid-sized sedans reviewed, driven and tested
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best mid-sized sedan that you can buy today? We at The fast Lane car are lucky to drive a different car every week so we've had the chance to review, test and drive many (if not most) the best mid-sized sedans on the market. Here are the top 5 mid-sized cars that we've reviewed, tested and driven in 2011.





2013 Infiniti G37 vs Audi S5 vs Volvo S60 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Infiniti G37x, the Audi S5 Quattro and the Volvo S60 T5 AWD all have just thing in common; they are all-wheel-drive cars. But perhaps more importantly these three car represent three very different ways to achieve power. The new Infiniti G37x is normally aspirated, while the Volvo S60 T5 is turbocharged and the Audi S5 Quattro is supercharged. So of course we were curious which of these three cars is faster to 60 MPH @ 1 mile above sea level. In the process of testing all three cars from 0-60 MPH we also wanted to find out just how much a driver can really influence a cars performance so Roman and Nathan decided to have a small contest to see who's faster. Is it Roman or Nathan or perhaps Andre the Russian mechanic. Find in another fun TFLcar Mashup Review.





2013 Audi S4 AWD vs 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design! - Head 2 Head Ep. 34
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman pits the 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design against returning contender, the 2013 Audi S4. Before hitting the road, the engine placements of both competing sedans are compared against segment contemporaries such the Cadillac ATS & BMW's 335i. Why? Because while both competitors are AWD, they start life as FWD. As a result, both vehicles have unusual engine placements. A mix of limit testing & canyon carving follows as Jonny provides insight on both cars, examining everything from driving impressions to interior ergonomics. Does Volvo's beefed up S60 have what it takes to dethrone Audi's "sleeper sedan?"
