Volvo S60 vs Audi A4 vs BMW 3 Series review - Auto Express
The new Volvo faces some tough competition. The BMW 3-Series is our current
class champ, combining engaging driving dynamics with top-notch quality,
low running costs and a line-up of efficient engines.
Joining it is the Audi A4, which sets the standard with its classy looks,
fantastic cabin and composed chassis. So, will the usual suspects overwhelm
the S60 -- or can the new kid on the block cause a major upset?

2013 Audi S4 AWD vs 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design! - Head 2 Head Ep. 34
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman pits the 2013
Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design against returning contender, the 2013 Audi S4.
Before hitting the road, the engine placements of both competing sedans are
compared against segment contemporaries such the Cadillac ATS & BMW's 335i.
Why? Because while both competitors are AWD, they start life as FWD. As a
result, both vehicles have unusual engine placements. A mix of limit
testing & canyon carving follows as Jonny provides insight on both cars,
examining everything from driving impressions to interior ergonomics. Does
Volvo's beefed up S60 have what it takes to dethrone Audi's "sleeper

2013 Volvo Car Group starts production of the new engine family VEA
Volvo Car Group starts production of a new engine family
Volvo Car Group is now starting production of the first engine variants in
the new, high-efficiency four-cylinder engine family. The development and
production take place in-house at Volvo Car Group and form a vital part of
the company's strategy for independence.
The strategy of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines and driveline
electrification is the path that Volvo Cars has chosen for the future. With
total control over the development and production of engines and drivelines
and by reducing the number of engine variants, the result is increased
flexibility and greater ability to influence quality.
"This marks a milestone in Volvo Cars' history. With our new engine family
we are focusing on two additional vital properties - driving pleasure and
fuel efficiency," says Derek Crabb, Vice President Powertrain Engineering.
Modern production plant with efficient assembly
In Volvo Car Group's engine plant in Skövde, preparations for the
production start of the new Volvo Engine Architecture (VEA) engines have
been under way for about two years. One of the highlights is a brand-new,
state-of-the-art addition to the plant for assembly of the new engines. All
the engine versions are built on the same line, which runs through the new
part of the plant and makes for very efficient production.
"One of the biggest challenges was the remodelling of the line for cylinder
block processing. 30 machining cells were replaced or converted at a cost
of about half a billion kronor," says Oskar Falk, Vice President Global
Billions invested in a competitive engine family
Development and investment in the new engine family is part of a
comprehensive expansion plan at Volvo Cars. About two billion kronor was
invested in the Skövde plant. This secures operations there and a large
number of jobs for a long time to come. The investment is the most
important in the engine plant's history.
Developed at Volvo Cars
The new VEA engines were developed by a Swedish team of engineers. The new,
smaller engines are optimised and deliver higher performance than today's
six-cylinder units, while offering lower fuel consumption than the current
generation of four-cylinder units.
"During the development of VEA the starting point was our customers and
what we wanted to offer them in regard to good fuel economy, low
environmental impact and immense driving pleasure at an attractive price.
At the same time, however, it's also about the fact that Volvo Cars gets a
sound basis for developing future-generation technologies featuring fuel
economy of absolute world class," says Derek Crabb.
Launched this autumn
VEA consists of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Together with
driveline electrification, VEA replaces the previous eight engine
architectures on three different platforms. The new engines will be
introduced between 2013 and 2015. Almost 20,000 engines will be produced in
2013, and by the end of the year the production pace will be 2000 units a
week. The first variants will be fitted to the Volvo S60, V60, XC60, V70,
XC70 and S80 in autumn 2013.
