Polestar to Develop Electrified Performance Cars for Volvo
When EVs first started to come about, my biggest fear was that the race towards electrification would mean the end of performance cars.

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Review: Best Wagon Ever?

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Review: Best Wagon Ever?

Say what you may, but we’re pretty pumped about Volvo’s overhaul of the XC60 crossover. While the current version represents about 30% of Volvo’s total global sales, it has gotten quite long in the tooth, and is nowhere near as sharp as its larger, XC90 sibling.

Review 2017 Volvo XC60 T6 Dynamic
Before I get into this review, I want to state that I generally am not a fan of Scandinavian things. ABBA makes me beg for silence. IKEA means an all-day battle with allen wrenches, missing parts and impossible directions.
