Padtoets: Volvo V90 Cross Country T6 Inscription

Om te streef na perfeksie

Nie te lank terug nie was Volvos gekenmerk as bokserige en oud-modiese voertuie. Iets wat nie werklik aanloklik is vir elke motoris nie. Wel, met die nuwe V90 reeks is hierdie seining beslis op sy kop gekeer. Nie net lok dit almal se oë op die pad nie, maar kom die kar in geheel baie naby aan perfeksie.

Tested: Volkswagen Caravelle

Family adventure for your next holiday? We tested the perfect car for the trip…

Purpose. I’ve uttered this before but it’s one of my fascinations with modern vehicles – do they fulfil the role they were made for? When “Volkswagen” and “Caravelle” popped up on my calendar I knew exactly what to do… organize an epic family road trip into the middle of nowhere.

Volvo’s new flagship sedans impress

I’m starting to feel like a broken record but am happy to repeat this joyful tale as often as necessary… Volvo went from a bleak future to new ownership (Geely) and superb products. After the 40 and 60 Series, the Swedes tackled their XC90 and reinvented a whole range – this new S90 sedan is part of that.

The exciting stuff

Volvo isn’t really known for red-hot performance cars although brand aficionados and the odd GTi pilot will attest to the rapidity of older Swedish metal sporting “T5” or “T6” badges. In more recent times, there’s been a new sticker adorning sporty Volvos – a cyan blue square with the word “Polestar”.

Launch Report: Volkswagen T6

The legendary status

Talk about a trip down memory lane. When Volkswagen invited us to attend the launch of their new, sixth generation T6 models, the manufacturer hauled out plenty of dusty memories and a few shiny examples of previous models. They even gave it an ad slogan which rightly claims that “legendary status comes standard”.

Padtoets: Volvo S60 T6

Anatomie van ‘n supermotor

Wat gee jy vir die man wat reeds alles het? ‘n Volvo S60 T6. Hoekom? Sy BMW 3-reeks en sy Audi A4 en sy Mercedes C-klas is almal al gekaap. Die kanse dat sy Volvo gekaap gaan word, is heelwat minder. Maar die mindere kans beteken nie dat dit ‘n mindere motor is nie; inteendeel, die Sweed hang saam met die bestes uit wat kwaliteit, toerusting, verrigting en prys betref. Saamgevat, waarde vir geld.

One new car, lots of information in random paragraphs.

Available with your choice of four engines, two gearboxes, four trim levels, front- or intelligent all-wheel-drive (certain models only), this stylish Swede easily matches its competitors for variety.

The crazy love

People. That’s who Volvo alleges their cars are made for. Until dogs or potted plants learn to drive, it may be a painfully obvious statement but, together with their hashphrase #MadeForYou, it does evoke warm fuzziness that this isn’t just another cold-hearted maker of mass transport.
