Volvo has always done things a little differently than BMW and Mercedes. Rather than hold back updates and release them all in “mid-cycle refreshes,” Volvo prefers to let the changes dribble out slowly year after year.
As a result of this process a car can change significantly over time but it happens so incrementally that to the casual observer it’s still the same car that launched four years ago. Such is the case for the 2015 Volvo S60. Verses the S60 launched just four short years ago this S60 has new bumpers, hood, grille, seats, dashboard, infotainment system, gauge cluster, headlamps, new and revised safety systems, all-new engines, and a new 8-speed transmission. The question before us today is: are these changes enough to keep the S60 fresh and competitive while we wait for the complete model-line makeover we’re all expecting in the next few years? Have a look at the video and decide for yourself…
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is one of the fastest and most luxurious sedans on the market. German host Sarah Sauer decided to take one for a spin and spend a day living in the lap of luxury. The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is powered by a 6.0 liter twin-turbo V12 engine making 621-hp and 732 kb-ft of torque. 0 to 60 mph comes in at 4.2 seconds! Now that’s some serious asphalt-grinding power. 🙂 A fun automobile, or unnecessary overkill? We’ll let you be the judge. Check out the video review below:
Let’s talk about your suspension. You know, the system that connects your wheels to the vehicle, controls your handling and delivers a good ride. Your suspension is critical for proper steering, stopping and stability. It’s a rough world out there, and every time you hit a pothole, a bump or an object in the road, your suspension system has to absorb that impact and maintain control. As you can imagine, your suspension has a lot of joints and pivot points, which allow your wheels to move up and down over bumps and to turn as you steer.
