Do you really need to take out a second mortgage to afford a super sedan? If you’re looking for a muscle car without the brash looks, a super sedan without the GT price tag, Volvo -- with Polestar's help -- has the answer.
I hated school. All I learned was that the meek shall inherit the earth, great things come in small packages and Volvo's are boxy and boring. Oh, and pie-ar-squared is 3.14.That stuff is either wrong or useless! Especially the bit about the Volvo, though in the case of the S60 T4, perhaps the small-engined version is something great in a small package.
Volvo is developing a safety system that can alert and automatically brake for animals in the road. Due to launch a the next few years, the technology will use the same radar and camera detection technology used for Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake, available in the Volvo S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80.
Volvo have always been innovators; think back to the three-point safety belt in 1958, padded dashboard in 1956, first central high-mounted rear stop light in 1986, side airbags in 1995, and trust me, the list of safety innovations from the Swedish born marque is exhaustive and far too long to list in this news piece. Nothing seems to have changed, despite being owned by the Chinese Gheely Corporation.
By now, collision avoidance systems that automatically apply the brakes to a speeding car have become pretty common. But while cars will suddenly slow if they detect an accident is about to happen, automakers have been hesitant to bring them to a sudden and full emergency stop.
The Emirates Western Force will head into their week one Investec Bank Super 14 clash against the Brumbies with winning form after a 31-12 victory in their third and final trial at ME Bank Stadium in Perth tonight.
Volvo Cars has further developed its C30 battery-powered electric vehicle prototype presented earlier this year, which it will launch at the Detroit motor show in January along with plans for a test fleet.
