New Volvos Intense Driving Tests
Hällered, a fenced-in 7 million m² area an hour away from Gothenburg,
Sweden, is Volvo Cars main testing facility. The track stretches 26 km,
consisting of 15 different test tracks designed to simulate every type of
road surface and weather condition a car can be subjected to during its
long life time, including a fully-equipped public highway within the area.
The tests are carefully planned and computer monitored. In just a few
months, cars are aged as much as during the entire anticipated lifetime of
the vehicles in normal traffic, thanks to test drivers working around the
clock. The car's active safety system is also tested at the facility. A
special rig has been developed just to test the Pedestrian Detection system
that should detect pedestrians and apply the brakes if the driver does not
react in time.
Volvo S60 vs Audi A4 vs BMW 3 Series review - Auto Express
The new Volvo faces some tough competition. The BMW 3-Series is our current
class champ, combining engaging driving dynamics with top-notch quality,
low running costs and a line-up of efficient engines.
Joining it is the Audi A4, which sets the standard with its classy looks,
fantastic cabin and composed chassis. So, will the usual suspects overwhelm
the S60 -- or can the new kid on the block cause a major upset?
