Pros Fast Quality interior Lots of safety features Cons Expensive subscription service Not much fun to drive Feels derivative The Volvo C40 Recharge is the brand’s first model to be sold as an electric car only. While that might sound like a big step, in reality the vast majority of the car is derived from the existing Volvo XC40. The XC40 is a car we really like at Carbuyer but we had hoped the C40 would feel more distinct, given it’s a new model for the brand.

The verdict: The 2022 Volvo V90 Cross Country stands out in the sea of luxury SUVs as a sleek, sophisticated alternative, but some aspects of its driving experience and touchscreen system aren’t up to luxury standards.

Volvo announced plans to put the next-generation XC90 into production at its new U.S. plant in 2022 and now the company has disclosed some preliminary details about the large SUV. Volvo’s Senior Vice President, Henrik Green, revealed the third generation of the premium SUV will be smart enough to offer level 4 autonomous driving technology to haul “sleeping passengers” from point A to point B on some roadways, in an interview with The Car Connection. On the standard model that won’t be possible, as you will need to tick the box called -Highway Assist- and doing so is going to set you back - four figures. To be implemented in future production models, Volvo has been testing more advanced self-driving…
