    24 September 2008 by Anthony ffrench-Constant

    Now, what was that movie wherein Dudley Moore played the advertising man whose copy simply told the truth? Can’t remember… But having promoted an airline on the sole basis that it ‘crashed less often...

  • Volvo XC90 D5 R- Design Geartronic (2008) review

    Price:  £39,045

    18 August 2008 by Peter Burgess

    My word, how excited we all were back in 2002 when Volvo launched its first SUV, the XC90. The initial production sold out almost on the spot, or so the message was from Volvo. Certainly there were...

  • Volvo S80 2.0 SE (2008) review

    Price:  £23,495

    18 August 2008 by Peter Burgess

    The Volvo S80. There’s a name to conjure with, to roll around your tongue and to savour the depths like a complex Bordeaux. Who are we kidding? The S80 is one of that small clique of large cars that...

    10 June 2008 by Colin Overland

    Volvo has joined the twin-clutch brigade with the arrival of this, the S40 2.0D with the Powershift transmission option. Powershift is Ford and Volvo’s take on the DSG idea that came to the fore with...

  • Volvo C70 2.0D SE (2008) review

    Price:  £27,995

    04 January 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Volvo launched the C70 with a USP: it was the world’s first four-seat premium convertible with a retractable steel roof. It’s a questionable claim. Is a Volvo that shares much of its underpinnings...

    Price:  £31,035

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    You can't beat a big Volvo estate... Yes, Volvo’s current line-up may run from funky sports hatchback to chunky off-roader, but its core model is the still the V70 big family estate. Since it...

  • Volvo XC60 concept (2007) review

    09 October 2007 by James Foxall

    Volvo already has a couple of off-roaders. What does it need another one for? The Swedes claim that people who want to do off-roady things like driving down dirt tracks and towing horseboxes will go...

  • Volvo V70 D5 (2007) review

    Price:  £32,095

    25 June 2007 by Peter Burgess

    Another Volvo Estate. Didn’t the Swedes invent this sector of the market? Listen to Volvo and you’d believe that its estate car stands alongside Coca Cola and Levi jeans as one of the world’s leading...
