Really? Mine certainly isn’t, in fact it is easily on par if not superior to both BMW’s and Audi I have owned during the last few years. A fantastic car all round. Forget the stigma Volvo’s may have had, they are on a roll for sure. Time for some folk to open their eyes and take another look...

That doesn't mean there is a diesel crash starting. In fact they are often cleaner than the so called eco petrols (1.0-1.4t petrols which need thrashing to get any power out of them) and manufacturers are going to great strides to make them viable again. Audi have released the S4 and S6 in diesel only flavours with a Mild hybrid function. Merc do a diesel hybrid too.

I have driven 220 miles today in my 190bhp 2.0TDI and got 64.4mpg. I wouldn't get anywhere near that in a hybrid and where I have driven to has no charging points anywhere around so I would be driving a heavy petrol. Same with electric, nowhere here to charge so would have had to go to a service station and watch a film on my laptop or something! Until they break 300+range with 30 min charging available everywhere and the car at a decent price then there won't be any sort of crash is fossil fueled cars.

In my last job I had a BMW 330e and it averaged 49mpg over the time I had it, that cost £37k. The car I got 64.4mpg in today is a 2014 Octavia VRS with 70k on the clock that I paid £10k for 18 months ago. Costs £30 a year to tax too. Usually average 55mpg on my normal (non covid) commutes.

And no pipe and slippers. Volvo, never ever again.

Great deal, but are you really going to drive a 30mpg (if you are lucky) gas guzzler in this day and age?

Don't get too excited. This is essentially the same deal as last week, it's just a few hundred cheaper because there's no metallic paint included.

I went from a 16 plate 340i to a 19 plate S90, the Volvo is no noticeably worse in the quality stakes and significantly better in the technology stakes.
I should add, my next car is an S60 T5 I have been that impressed with the Volvo

Handling, gearbox and infotainment wise, BMW beats it hands down. I'm not a big fan of the gargantuan screen myself, seats are unparalleled on Volvo's for comfort. Good price, but I'd prefer metallic paint.

Handling I can agree on but the gearbox was terrible on the 340i and actually the reason I wanted shot of it in the first place. You would go over a speed bump at a slowed pace and look to start accelerating normally and you would have this jerk light someone who didn't know how to use clutch control. Also, accelerating into a gap on a roundabout, you would gently press the accelerator trying to get it moving as if you were moving off the biting point, and all you would get was no movement, no movement, then wheelspin, it was horrible!

The Volvo by comparison just goes smoothly as you would expect. The speed of change on the box I am sure is not is good, but it is a far more enjoyable experience.

As for infotainment, it was behind the times as always on BMW's, not that it is bad, just maybe a year behind everyone else. The wheel thing is probably the only better thing as touch only controls on a car is a bad idea.
Don't get me wrong, that was my 3rd BMW for a reason, the engine in a BMW is unparalleled, but I have had my head turned by the "nice place to be" nature of the Volvo. There are definitely shortcomings BMW could improve upon (same with the Volvo) but at this price for a comparable 5 series, you are getting a 3 year old car and that is not manufacturer approved. That is also up to 30,000 miles, so higher mileage as well. The BMW just isn't that much better for me
I have a V90 Cross Country T5 on lease, wonderful car, interior is fantastic, engine is pretty powerful for the size, specs are really good, I especially love Pilot Assist on highways. One downside is the entertainment system, horrible piece of junk, navigation is not great and making Apple play optional is appalling on these specs.

I can only go off what i saw/felt. The screen quality looked worse. the vents seemed flimsier. too much hard plastic. The gearbox was nowhere near my ZF 8 speed. I'm not saying at this price it's not a good car, but was a drop down from mine.

I'm a fan of tourqy diesels and tested the T4 engine, although the same power, didn't provide that urgency to overtake i was used too.

My eyes are open, hence the test drive but suspect the T5 might be better suited

Oh i agree the tech on the BMs is far below what we should expect and most others apart from the "big 3" come with far far more tech.
futura11/06/2020 23:04

Sounds like you've been reading too many car magazines!



Or sounds like i test drove it and then comparded it to my car?
Have a V90 Inscription (18 plate), has one of these as a hire car whilst they did a damage repair for a couple of weeks. Wife has a 3 series M sport (19 plate).

Definitely comparable, if not superior, to the 3 series in the comfort and conveniences/tech stakes. It isn't as responsive to drive, but these models are all the same with different trim, no fundamental differences between R Design and the others. Far better safety options, space and practicality than the 3 series and the A4 avant (2017, which they haven;t changed much in the current facelift model) I had before the Volvo.

Good value, high quality car. But you do need to be a fan of the minimalist interior, big screen and practicality over driving experience. Not to say it's a slouch or not fun to drive, just not on a par with the BMW or Audi.

Mrs has a 1.4TSI (150BHP) VW and try as we might can't get it above 45mpg. Avg is around 39-41mpg.

Those look like Audi dials to me? ......and a hybrid judging by ready and off on rev counter.

Shame on the spec though - no adaptive cruise control, no parking cameras, Apple Car play is extra - for a car like S60, you would expect these things as standard.

That's a pretty good average for a petrol depending on your mileage and you have to consider with the average that includes parking, idling etc. It's an A4 1.4tfsi no hybrid, I was shocked when I first got the car too. I came from a Skoda superb 2.0tdi and it's pretty much the same on fuel, I average usually a tad under 55mpg. The engines have a lot of torque for the displacement but I prefer to use a little more revs as I don't want to lug the engine too much.
loofer12/06/2020 14:54

What car/engine is that in and is it an exceptional case?


A4 1.4tfsi it's a really efficient car if you drive smoothly. As soon as you accelerate hard the fuel economy goes down a bit as the fuel air ratio increases to cool the cylinders.
Seems such a good deal judging by the secondhand market. I guess the only thing holding it back for a lot of people is the need to be a cash buyer.
Nice deal but feel these might get cheaper. Almost bit for a v90 this week brand new not pre reg for less than 25k from a main dealer. That was until I found out the list price was £115 more than£40k meaning an extra 300 odd road tax for five years. I just don't get why they would not try to keep it that 115 below the 40k. Oh that's right to suit the PCP deals by overinflating their prices. I am hoping for a momentum v90 for c22k then I'm there.
I always liked volvo, amazing cars, but in the last years Geely started to stick their nose to much in volvo and initial Geely was the owner and Volvo had the freedom to do what they done best, now they want to take complete control over it. Personal opinion , but i will not touch a car from a company that makes clones of any car on the market

Beemers are widely considered to have industry leading 'auto' boxes, manuals on the other hand I found to be notchy but still precise and controlled enough for daily driving. Mind you, these were in lower powered versions.

I have one - it's a beautiful thing. Absolutely love it.

And to the guy who talked about the interior, here's what Clarkson had to say about it...

"Then you step inside and, frankly, you’re going to get straight back out again and sign on the dotted line. Because this side of a Rolls-Royce Phantom you will find no finer car interior... "
