    I see Volvo is really thinking about how to benefit the mechanics out there by making a car with *every drivetrain configuration* in it

    It won't beat the 1999 V70 in quality, problaby the best Volvo ever built, i went to the scrapyard and they only have 2!, which means they're still rolling.

    Hello Land Rover window and mirror switches from 2005!
    Doug must have been using different Volvo’s than I have. Every new Volvo I’ve been in including my aunt’s XC60 is slow, laggy and extremely confusing to operate.
    Also, did anyone else notice the complete skip over the obviously missing power closing trunk button?? Highlighting a lock button on the trunk. Really.

    Nobody with any self respect should own anything referred to as a "Polestar".

    I don’t think the gear selector is really that big of a problem, means you really don’t have to look all the way down to see what gear your in just look at your gauge cluster.

    18:55 How does that make sense? It's not like the engine cover is the first thing someone will hit in a collsion. You still have the hood. Seems like a rather useless concept.

    • Blubbis
      Blubbis 7 days ago

      The hood is easily dented and will buckle under the preassure of a head on collision, so i can see how it would make a difference to have an inch or so of more forgiving material than cast iron under there

    "more than $60k for a Volvo is a lot" (2:20) ... couldn't agree more, as a continuous Volvo owner since 1985... Their infotainment system is crap and their funky drivetrains (complicated by superchargers and electric motors to only one axle, gas engine powering the other axle) with extremely limited all-electric range in their PHEVs make them not worth over $50k, seriously. Plus, their instrument panel is one of the more spartan and poorly designed I've seen (with no tachometer in the PHEVs to let you know what RPMs your engine is doing and no engine-temperature gauge). Yeah, the seats are comfortable. But their reliability is not great, and the long-term prospects for these PHEVs outside of warranty is bleak.

    Dougs' obsession with blank switches in this instance causes mistaking an obvious memory card slot for a blank button.

    That Tablet display is worthless using while driving. Some company should make an aftermarket solution to it with fysical buttons in combination with a large display.

    I suspect the thinking with the shifter is that your attention is supposed to be outside the car anyway. Looking down at the shifter is a longer distraction than looking at the instrument cluster. Also of course there's the excuse that it's just something you'd get used to. :)

    long-term reliability, worried ? i know that volvo isn't what it was decades ago but Doug, Volvo IMO can still out do any other brand if it comes to reliability and long term usage.

    5:48 - It's not just awkward it's also dangerous! This kind of gear lever is what killed 'Star Trek' star Anton Yelchin. He forgot that the car was in neutral instead in parking, and who can blame him it's not obvious. So his car was on a slope in front of the garage door. He got out in fornt of the car to open the garage door, and the car moved and crushed him against the door. This kind of lever should be prohibited by law!!! It's f***ing idiotic.

    21:07 I think Volvo has been sporty for quite some time now, Doug, you need to review the 2008 Volvo S80 V8, or a 2004 S80 T6, the sporty Volvo's started with the 850 T5 back in 1992!
    You make it sound Volvo made only 130 hp 940's and now all of a sudden an S60 Polestar.

    The orange / yellow seat belts are so ugly. They remind me of test cars which BMW uses. The seat belts have to be bright in order to be easy identifiable and easy to cut in case of accidents.

    It shows GPH when standing still, hence if you're not moving, there would be zero MPG. It will show MPG when you start moving.
