Talk about relaxing...
With 2,000 lb-ft of torque comes great responsibility. Would you use it for good, evil, or just turning fuel and tires into noise?
If you ever wanted a graphic demonstration of wicked, terminal understeer—here you go. This is a Volvo V60 Cross Country that my coworker Mike Ballaban was driving last week out in the snow.
When life gives you snow, make snownuts.
Volvo was one of the first out the gate with this whole crossover trend, back when it had the V70 XC in the 1990s, which was just based on a regular wagon. Most crossovers since have gotten more SUV- and van-like, but Volvo’s stayed true to its roots with this, the 2016 Volvo V60 Cross Country. And I kinda like it.
The XC60 has been Volvo’s best selling vehicle by a huge margin, and for a good reason. It’s elegant, safe and offers a slew of powertrain options. What do you need to know before you buy a Volvo XC60? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
Superman is known for his unrivaled strength, x-ray vision, ability to fly, and his indestructibility. It’s that last element of the superhero that Volvo seems to have clued in on with its modern range of vehicles, and the new S90 luxury sedan make should make you feel as indestructible driving it as possible.
Living stateside, you might think that the Volvo S60 is the smallest car that the Swedish company makes. You would be very wrong. Over in Europe, Volvo sells a car called the V40, a slick-looking little hatchback, but it is strictly not sold in the U.S. For the next 40-series car, Volvo plans to change that. Oh, and…
Screens! Gestures! Autonomy! More screens! If there was anything we learned from CES this year, it’s that the insides of cars are changing as fast as the cars themselves are.
It’s not quite the full Michael Knight experience yet, but as long as you keep saying “in my Volvo” to your watch, you’ll never be alone again.
Volvo might be the most sweet, staid, unassuming car company in existence. Little did I know that they used to absolutely dominate the completely manic door-to-door smashing and bashing world of European Rallycross.
The 2016 Volvo XC90 is supposed to be the SUV that gets Volvo back in the garages of the moderately wealthy and abundantly sensible. What do you need to know before you buy an XC90? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
I recently went to the Volvo Museum in Gothenburg, only to find a car called Philip there. If you think it looks just like a 1951 Kaiser, you’re not alone. In fact, that’s why it never made it to America.
Volvo is clearly in the middle of some big changes right now, and during my trip to Gothenberg this week I had a lot on my mind. I wanted to know why the 2016 S90 turned out the way it did, how fast Polestar will go, what Volvo thinks of the Germans, and how it will respond to those who miss a few cylinders from their…
British kids are cuter than American kids, FACT. But to make them truly perfect, you need to give them remote control over a giant dump truck, and then let them run wild. I don’t care that this is an ad for Volvo Trucks, because it is the greatest and best video I’ve seen all day.
Few things in the world of cars suck as much as turbo lag. We want power, and we want it now! Volvo agrees, so with the new diesel 2017 S90 sedan, they’re using an air compressor, a bottle and a valve to let those sweet prancing horses out as quickly as possible. Let’s find out how it works.
This is the new 2017 Volvo S90, packing a 407 horsepower hybrid drivetrain, the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive system upgraded to work at up to 80 mph, the anti-kangaroo tech they call City Safety and a huge tablet in the middle with Apple CarPlay (or Android, if you’re one of those people) and a bunch of…
