2009 Volvo S60 | new car review

2009 Volvo S60 The S60 is Volvo’s offering to the  midsize segment of the automotive market. Gone are the boxy and chunky body lines of the older Volvo range, and in instead are curves, rolls and easy-edges of the S60. That trademark Volvo front grille begins an exercise in super-smooth…

2009 Volvo S40 | new car review

2009 Volvo S40   There are some rather cunning design features behind the Volvo S40, making it look a whole lot different, and bigger, than the other cars that it shares its basic platform with. Owned by Ford, the Volvo car shares, as a cost-saving exercise, the same chassis as…

2009 Volvo C70 | new car review

2009 Volvo C70   The C70 is one of those rare treats in the hard-top convertible/coupe range of models available today; one that looks just great, be that with the roof up or the roof down. Some convertibles can look the part with the roof down, but then fold it…

2009 Volvo C30 | new car review

2009 Volvo C30   Volvo attempted to take a big step away from their dull, safety-conscious image with the funky little C30, and in a lot of ways they seem to have done the trick. Whilst there is absolutely nothing wrong with having this safety-conscious image, an image that they…

2009 Volkswagen Touareg | new car review

2009 Volkswagen Touareg   The VW Touareg brings together a very useful, practical and luxurious combination of on and off-road capability, interior space and yet another trademark gorgeous VW interior. This most certainly is a luxury sports utility vehicle, but it also has the necessary under-skin mechanicals to tear it…

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan | new car review

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan   The Volkswagen Tiguan was launched into the Middle East market in 2007 and was surely hoping to cash in with some sales success off the back of its big brother, the Touareg’s good reputation and relative success here. It’s a little plainer in the looks department…

2009 Volkswagen Polo | new car review

2009 Volkswagen Polo   The VW Polo has gone through a classy revamp in recent years, evolving from a poor man’s Golf, into a well-respected contender in the small hatchback market, with its own distinct identity. It is possible to regard the Polo as shrink-to-fit version of the world-popular Golf,…

2009 Volkswagen Scirocco | new car review

2009 Volkswagen Scirocco   Fresh for the end of 2008 came the revived VW Scirocco, and for many who could remember the original car from back in the 1970s, this was a welcome return of what, back then, was quite an iconic car. The original Scirocco offered a little bit…

2009 Volkswagen Phaeton | new car review

2009 Volkswagen Phaeton   The Phaeton is a limousine from VW that sets very high standards in comfort and luxury, aimed directly to take on the big, long and luxurious cars from the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi. Unfortunately for VW it kind of missed the mark and as…

2009 Volkswagen Passat CC | new car review

When is a Volkswagen Passat not a Passat? When it’s a Passat CC, of course. Despite a highly confusing name, the Passat CC is neither a variant of the Passat seen on the previous page, or a coupe-convertible. Quite why Volkswagen decided to name it as such is a mystery.…
