I used to drive a 240 GLE  almost 18 years ago. It was a very tough car but crude. The engine noise reminded me of a 1 ton truck but it was reliable. Most of the control buttons were as big as apple pies ;D which I really hate.

S60 polestar version. that's another sexy sport sedan. too bad it's not available for SEA market.
It's special for Australia market only, but with tuned down version.

The concept S60 Polestar with 508hp, the australian market S60 polestar with 350hp only but with massive 500nm torque which is not too bad.

Hi Gigi, not sure yet...
For Volvo, based on my sis S80, it doesn't cost much for it's maintenance. The cost should be around the same as my VW GTI.
since this is facelift model and packed with some goodies from Volvo, so, me and my sis decided to order one each.
Mine is Crystal Pearl white, she chose Ice White, same as her S80 T5.
Both XC60 loaded exactly the same option, only the color is different.

XC60 T6 R-Design
20' Ixion Rim
booster seat
premium sound
auto tailgate
sun roof

Will share more pics once i get it next week.

I used to drive an S70 and loved it to bits. Didn't have much problems with the car. Solid as solid can be. But I had to let it go...sadly, as I didn't drive it around as much as I would like to living in Hong Kong. Taking public transportation here is so much more convenient. Not many Volvo lovers here in HK as well...
