2018 Volvo V60 Polestar Drivers’ Notes Review

Just in time for the reveal of the new 2019 Volvo V60, the outgoing 2018 Volvo V60 Polestar arrived at Autoblog HQ. We drove the refreshed model last year.

2018 Range Rover Velar

We love Range Rovers. No, really, we do. The combination of top-tier luxury and Wrangler-like capability elicits such a deep emotional reaction that we’re able to easily block out any negative insult that might be hurled toward our ears.
