2018 Volvo XC60 review, road test

    Luxuriously appointed, smart-looking and relaxing to drive, the new XC60 is a serious contender in its segment.

    Volvo has really put a lot of focus on equipment, selling the XC60 only in the fully loaded D5 Inscription trim. The equipment on offer is extensive, some not seen in rivals too. Being a Volvo, let’s talk about the safety kit. There’s Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-keeping Aid that nudges the wheel should you stray, Pilot Assist that autonomously drives the car in its lane (you do have to keep your hands on the wheel though), and Volvo’s City Safe that can detect cars, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals and give you a warning or even automatically bring the car to a halt. Then there’s Cross Traffic Alert that warns you of crossing traffic while you are reversing, Blind Spot Information that alerts you to traffic on your flanks, Distance Warning that lets you know if you’re driving too close to the vehicle ahead, and Road Sign Information in the heads-up as well as instrument panel display. Needless to say, it offers kit like a 360-degree camera, automatic parking, ABS, ESP, Hill start and descent control, and six airbags.

    Other notable equipment is the all-round air suspension, a stunning Bowers & Wilkins sound system, a four-zone climate control with an air quality sensor, active bending LED headlights, heated steering wheel, headlight cleaning, driver’s heads-up display, a 9.0-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, a powered tailgate, and what a luxury car in India is incomplete without – a large panoramic sunroof.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
