2016 Volvo V60 Polestar: The Hottest Wagon of Them All? - Ignition Ep. 146
Volvo has a history of making high-performance station wagons, and this one is the fastest yet. In fact, it’s the third-quickest wagon Motor Trend has ever tested, thanks to all-wheel drive and a 345-hp turbocharged straight-six: 0-60 happens in just 5.0 seconds. It comes outfitted from the factory with Öhlins dampers, 6-piston Brembo brakes, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, and enough cargo capacity to empty out your local supermarket. We love wagons because they lose almost nothing in performance compared to the sedans they’re based on — and they’re often even better-looking. This Volvo is easily the prettiest wagon around (especially with the Thule roof rack we put on it), and it sounds as great as it looks. On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Motor Trend Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa takes to the mountains to show us just how great Sweden’s winter hot-rod does in the snow. Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend Youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & https://www.facebook.com/mt.ignition Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/mt_ignition Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/p...

2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack vs 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus! - Head 2 Head Episode 33
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Carlos Lago pits the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack against the 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus. Performance wise, both these all-wheel drive monsters represent the cream of the crop from their respective manufacturers. Nissan's GT-R comes out of the gate swinging with it's track pack, but the R8 packs a twin-clutch transmission as well as more power than previous R8's. In between some dynamic testing & canyon carving, Randy Pobst weighs in with his two cents as he joins Carlos at the Streets of Willow racetrack. Does Audi's V-10 goliath have what it takes to topple the legendary "Godzilla"?

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.
