    It’s an old school Friday at Winding Road, and Multimedia Editor Amos put together a video of a classic hot sedan from… Volvo?

    LA 2012: Volvo S60 Polestar Concept

    Volvo, that company of safety minded Swedes and maker of cars for your professor, clergyman, and other banal and humdrum people in your life has gone absolutely mad. Why, you ask? Because Polestar, Volvo’s tuning division, has taken the comfortable and stylish S60 and stuffed 508 horsepower...

    Quick Drive: 2012 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD

    The Volvo is a good vehicle. It’s got plenty of power from its turbocharged six-cylinder engine, packing 300 ponies and 325 pound-feet of torque. There’s some turbo lag on tip-in, but by and large the engine spools rather quickly and dumps the torque across the middle of the rev range. It feels...

    Driven: 2013 Volvo S80 T6 AWD

    We enjoyed our rather short drive experience in the big Volvo, though far more when we were crushing highway miles than on the few occasions that we dove into the smaller, curvier Utah roads. That’s not because the S80 felt unstable, or lacked for grip on tight corners, but rather because the...

    Driven: 2013 Volvo S60 T5 AWD

    From our perspective, the new S60 configuration offers nearly everything that we loved about the original car, but without some of the power that was frankly, a little superfluous. Of course there’s nothing wrong with “extra” horsepower, but the S60 T6 always struck us as a vehicle whose engine...

    Quick Drive: 2012 Volvo C70 Inscription

    If you are looking for a stylish, comfortable, reasonably priced, four-person convertible, you could do much worse than the Volvo C70 Inscription. If you are looking for a fun-to-drive, fast, sharp droptop, then you’ll probably want to look elsewhere.

    Does this prove or at least indicate that the Volvo XC60 is safer then the Audi Q5? If you look at the above link they both offer "substantially better" personal injury protection But if you compare the numbers it seems you are 50% more likely to be injured in the Audi (the Audi's number...

    Third Look: Turning The Corner With The Volvo S60

    Frankly, we like the 2011 Volvo S60. It’s easily powerful, with its 300 horsepower and 325 pound feet of torque supplying ample amount of remarkably smooth thrust. We like the design, and the car’s interior is a particularly comfortable and aesthetically pleasing space for the driver and...
