We could say that Volvo keeps making the same cars for years, but we'd be hiding the fact that we actually love this one quite a bit. It's an update for the V60 mid-size estate for the 2015 model year and has made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show today, Swedish number plates, R-Design kit and new engine included.
The 2015 V60 has everything you'd ever want in a car now. It comes with the City Safety system, Park Assist Pilot, Lane Keeping Aid, pedestrian and cyclist detection and more.

The V60 R-Design features a unique face with a redesigned, dynamic, expressive nose. We also love the all-new 19-inch wheels on this car and the twin tailpipes round the back.

But by far the coolest features is the all-new T6 engine. While Mercedes's GLK 350 requires a 3.5-liter V6 to give you about 300 hp, Volvo has something much better: a twin-charged 2-liter engine.

Both a supercharger and a turbocharger have been fitted for optimal forced induction. "Using the supercharger to fill in the bottom end gives the engine a big, naturally aspirated feel. The mechanically linked compressor starts to function immediately at low revs, while the turbocharger kicks in when the airflow builds up. Fuel consumption with new 8-speed automatic is 6.7 l/100 km (157 g/km) in the V60," Volvo says.

We say: Good job Volvo, just what you guys needed!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
