What do you think of when you picture Volvo? Think towing a caravan on the A303 with a tailback longer than the Seine? Think accident-prone old biddy drivers with brown leather driving gloves? Think again..
During the last few months we’ve immersed ourselves in several of Volvo’s most dynamic new models, to learn about how the marque is positioned in 2012 and why you might chose to buy one rather than its more prolific German competitors.
Our time spent recently with Volvo’s V60 T6 Polestar got me thinking – is there a better all-round model in Volvo’s range? The T6 Polestar ticks plenty of boxes, but after driving around in a diesel for the past 4-years the T6’s mid-20s fuel consumption came as something of a shock.
Due to be officially unveiled on 28th February, Volvo’s new compact family hatchback has been outed in these leaked images revealed today.
The Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid is the world’s first diesel plug-in hybrid and is Volvo Car Corporation’s most technically advanced model ever – an electric car, hybrid car and muscle-car all rolled into one.
If it’s been a while since you looked at Volvo’s range of cars, then it may surprise you to know that the sensible Swedish car maker has recently begun engineering its cars to compete dynamically on a par with more recognisable sporting brands such as BMW and Mercedes.
