2019 Volvo V60 Review By TestDriveNow Auto Critic Steve Hammes.
Joining the impressive flagship V90 is this all-new V60; a smaller, sportier take on what Volvo does best.
Several years back it appeared as though Volvo had all but given up on their wagon endeavors. But then the all-new V90 arrived to restore the faith and now the rebirth of one of Volvo’s oldest cars, the V60, keeps the line moving. The new 60 Series models mirror everything the Swedes have been up to since the current generation XC90 debuted 3 years ago. The harder edged exterior styling is a resounding success across the board. But Volvo’s Scandinavian-styled, beautiful yet simplistic cabins are all so similar to one another that it’s difficult to tell them apart, making it easy for the Volvo faithful to transition from one model to another but inducing a serious case of Deja vu for the rest of us. At least here in this entry-level Momentum trim you can specify these fashionable City Weave Textile seats which provide some distinction and always start a conversation. Personally, I love them. And these seats don’t just look cool; they’re super comfortable with a perfect blend of softness and support.

2019 Nissan LEAF e+ First Look By Auto Critic Steve Hammes. The new 2019 Nissan LEAF e+ has a 62 kWh battery pack and an EPA-estimated range of up to 226 miles. Sales in the U.S. are expected to begin in spring 2019. While the regular LEAF will take you 150 miles on a full charge, this one tacks on another 75 miles thanks to a battery with 55% more capacity and a motor delivering 45% more power. That translates into an increased 250 pound-feet of instantaneous torque adding more passing prowess at highway speeds while raising the top speed.
This is an SUV that eagerly wants to be your friend by doing all of the chores, allowing you to enjoy every trip.
