Snowdrift: Volvo S60 Polestar (with a bit of C63 AMG). And a drag race. - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
They drive a car from Sweden to the UK to avoid the snow. And it snows in the UK. We got to play in it though, and that cool air probably made it good for at least 508hp. It's a small-volume concept for now, but we had a C63 on display to add some perspective (actually, just because it was hilarious in the snow)





2015 Volvo S60 T6 FWD Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF Volvo has always done things a little differently than BMW and Mercedes. Rather than hold back updates and release them all in "mid-cycle refreshes," Volvo prefers to let the changes dribble out slowly year after year. As a result of this process a car can change significantly over time but it happens so incrementally that to the casual observer it's still the same car that launched four years ago. Such is the case for the 2015 Volvo S60. Vurses the S60 launched just four short years ago (US launch was three years ago in 2011), this S60 has new bumpers, hood, grille, seats, dashboard, infotainment system, gauge cluster, headlamps, new and revised safety systems, all-new engines, and a new 8-speed transmission. The question before us today is: are these changes enough to keep the S60 fresh and competitive while we wait for the complete model-line makeover we're all expecting in the next few years?





2015 Volvo V60 Sport Wagon Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF There was a time when wagons roamed the interstates ferrying families from one National Lampoon vacation to another. With the rise of the crossover, those looking for the original "looks practical but handles like a sedan" mode of transport have few options and most of them live in the luxury segment. Let's count them before we go too far. We have the soon-to-be-cancelled TSX, the last-generation Cadillac CTS (the new wagon may arrive next year) Jetta, E-Class, 3-Series and Prius V. Even if you expand things to include "off-road wagons"the list only grows by three (Allroad, Outback and XC70.) Despite the shrinking market, Volvo's brand has long been associated with practical wagons that it's almost hard to believe it has been three full years since Volvo sold one in America. That's about to change with the 2015 V60. Back in 2010 Volvo was selling two wagons in America. The V50 was based on the compact S40 sedan and the V70 shared its soul with Volvo's 5-series competitor the S80. Although the V70 is still sold in Europe and the V40 (the replacement for the V50) splashed down in 2013, Americans will have to settle for Volvo's middle child: the V60 wagon. Based on Volvo's S60 sedan, the V60 competes internationally with wagon variants of the 3-Series, C-Class, Audi A4 and many others. But this is America and Volvo's only direct competitor is the BWM 328i xDrive wagon. More on that later. Despite ditching the boxy form years ago, Volvo's style remains the automotive Birkenstock to BMW's Prada. The entire Volvo lineup in America (except for the XC90) received a 2014 face lift with a more aggressive grille and more creases in the hood. Volvo has finally tucked their radar cruise control module behind a plastic panel that blends into the grille rather than sticking out like a gray sore thumb. Out back we get bumper cover integrates Exhausts, a large black surround on the rear glass that made me wish it was separately hinged, and a continuation of those oh-so-sexy Swedish hips. Volvo's engineers kept the V60's roofline fairly high at the rear, but even the Swedes have given in to modern "coupé" styling cues, most notable in the greenhouse shape. The raked rear glass which looks sexier but takes a toll on cargo space. Birkenstocks are comfy. Prada? Hit and miss. (Or so I'm told.) And so it is with Volvo and BMW interiors. The S60 on which the V60 is based is now 5 years old. Aside from massaging color and trim options, the only substantive changes to the interior since it was launched is Volvo's LCD disco dash, a new steering wheel with shift paddles (optional) and a new gear shift knob. Despite its age, the Scandinavian chic cabin has what it takes to complete with BMW, especially now that the 3-Series has gone slightly down-market with more hard plastics in this generation. My only major gripe is the small 7-inch infotainment display that is clearly outclassed by BMW's ginormous iDrive screen. The V60 has been priced aggressively for 2015 starting at $35,300 that's an $800 upsell over then S60 and $6,150 less than a base 3-series wagon. Adjusting for feature content, the base V60 is still $5,000 less. If bargain wagons with premium badges are your thing, the TSX is king at $31,985 starting but the delta shrinks to less than two grand when you adjust for the V60's feature set. The $36,800 might be the more appropriate competitor for the AWD-only 3-wagon, but a more interesting match up is the $44,300 V60 T6 AWD. Configuring a 3 or the CTS wagon with the same equipment you find on the Volvo will set you back at least $2,000 more. In addition to the value factor, the Volvo brings 35% more power to the fight. The extra power and AWD go a long way in compensating for the better weight balance in the BMW or the Caddy. Since GM hasn't refreshed their wagon yet the 3.0 and 3.6 liter V6 engined are outclassed in every metric by the Swede. Option your V60 with every conceivable option and you end up at $54,480. As a former Volvo wagon owner I'm probably biased, but all the reasons I opted for a Swedish cargo hauler in 2006 apply to the V60. Aside from the fact that "value" strikes a fire in my loins, the Volvo is the clear performance option in this segment. Want more shove than the $44,300 Volvo? Pony up $64,900 for the CTS-V wagon or $102,370 for an E63 AMG wagon. I'll reserve my final judgement until I can get my hands on one for a more thorough evaluation, but in the mean time the V60 is quite simply the best performance and value option in this phone booth sized segment.





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?"

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.
