Estate sales in decline? Nobody told the Volvo V90

5 November 2018

Sometimes, if you continue to evolve a product you've long been famous for, ignore those claiming that people have moved on to different things, you can not only stay successful but become even more so. Worldwide demand for the Volvo V90 is up so far this year - proof that big wagons are far from dead.


Another good Volvo arrives at platform SPA

18 July 2018

There was a noticeable air of excitement amongst Volvo Car UK people at the redesigned V60's press launch in Yorkshire this week.

Lexus LC 500 - the anti-hybrid?

7 June 2018

With sales well below 50,000 per annum (16,276 for the year to the end of April), Lexus is a minor make in Europe, smaller even than Jaguar and about the same size as DS. Unceasingly advertising itself as the hybrid brand in the days when few buyers knew anything about petrol-electrics is the reason why. It's ironic then that just as its hybrids are rising in popularity, Toyota is also selling the stunning LC coupe with a proper old-school V8.


Volvo's engine and platform independence progress

25 November 2015

Engines are expensive items for an automaker to develop and, after sharing some powertrains with former owner Ford, Volvo, under new Chinese owner Geely, developed its own Drive-E engine range. The engines, which are all built with a maximum capacity of two litres and four cylinders, offer lower weight, size and complexity, all resulting in lower emissions, lower fuel consumption and greater driveability.
