2014 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design Polestar - WR TV POV Test Drive
Today we set our sights on this Swedish sports sedan from a brand that's
perhaps been best known for its focus on safety in the past, but now looks
to be making a run at nabbing some sales away from the performance
divisions of automakers like Mercedes Benz and BMW.
Slotted between the standard S60 T6 and the hot-blooded, limited production
S60 Polestar, the S60 T6 R-Design sports a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder motor that
outputs 325 horsepower and 354lb-ft of
torque, which routes the power to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic
transmission. This combination gets the S60 T6 R-Design to 60mph from a
standstill in five seconds flat.
The S60 T6 R-Design also gets uprated suspension bits including stiffer
bushings, beefier sway bars and monotube dampers, and it rides half an inch
lower than the standard S60. Inside, special R-Design sport seats, aluminum
inlays and sport pedals round out the package.

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?
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

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
IM, Email, and Social Networks in one easy to use application!
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.
All-New 2015 Volvo XC90 - CRASH TEST
The all-new XC90 offers the most comprehensive and technologically
sophisticated standard safety package available in the automotive industry.
It includes two world first safety technologies: a run-off road protection
package and auto brake at intersection capability.
In a run-off road scenario, the all-new Volvo XC90 detects what is
happening and the front safety belts are tightened to keep the occupants in
position. To help prevent spine injuries, energy-absorbing functionality
between the seat and seat frame cushions the vertical forces that can arise
when the car encounters a hard landing in the terrain.
The XC90 is the first car in the world with technology that features
automatic braking if the driver turns in front of an oncoming car. This is
a common scenario at busy city crossings as well as on highways, where the
speed limits are higher.
City Safety becomes the umbrella name for all of Volvo Cars’ auto brake
functions, which are standard equipment in the all-new XC90. It now covers
vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in front of the car, day and night.
