Volvo XC60 D4 AWD Geartronic SE Lux Nav road test report review

WHEN a group of friends started to plan their next skiing trip and the decision to drive across Europe in winter was made, for me, this All Wheel Drive Volvo XC60 was the weapon of choice.

THE new Mazda3 is excellent – it’s as simple as that. I said so when I attended the launch in Scotland and I still say so now, having spent a week at the helm of the Fastback model, or saloon to you and me. The Kodo design of the new Mazda3, which means Soul of Motion, follows the lead set by the Mazda6 and CX-5, which is proving very popular with customers. The concept works well in the Mazda3 too, giving the car considerable road presence and stand-out appeal. It looks good from all angles.
