Driven: Volvo V60 T6 AWD R-Design Polestar meets Shelsley Walsh

There was a time when owning a Volvo was considered cool – the year was 1994 and Volvo had teamed up with Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) to contest the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).

To help raise the brand’s profile, Volvo originally chose the 850 Estate, which they reasoned would generate the most media exposure.

I bet you didn’t see this coming. Volvo, all safe and sensible hooking up with the UK’s hottest boy band. But then times have changed at Volvo – the cars are still at the top-end in terms of active and passive road safety, but they’re also great fun to drive, especially the latest V60/S60 models.
