BMW M340i v Audi S4 v AMG E53 v Volvo S60 Polestar: DRAG RACE petrol v diesel v hybrid

It's time for another carwow drag race! Mat's sat in the fastest Volvo production car - the S60 Polestar Engineered! It lines up with a turbo & supercharged 2.0-litre engine and electric motor, producing a combined 405hp! But does it stand a chance against the diesel (😱) S4 with its 3.0-litre V6? How about either the M340i or AMG-E53 with their respective 3.0-litre straight-six turbos? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

    Polestar specs are trash. For a supercharger and a turbo charger it sounds like a cow struggling to breathe. Audi sounds like a bull which can't make sounds for too long. BMW sounds like the ultimate driving machine. Mercedes sounds like it is trying to sing.

    I knew right from the start that the BMW would've been the overall winner, but I wouldn't have expected the 400hp Volvo to lose against the Audi. What a disappointment, just another evidence that downsizing is making things worse by any means: efficiency AND performance. Oh, and the Volvo is pathetic even when it comes to "sound". A job well done, I guess.

    Ce test est biaisé et même malhonnête ! Comment peut-on faire des "tests" de performances avec la puissance électrique d'un véhicule "hybride" absente ??? De même, avec le mode "Comfort" et non "Sport/(Polestar Engineered)"...?? Pas sérieux et totalement biaisé ! Et je ne parle même pas de la "fiabilité" quant aux mesures des performances...!!

    I honestly don’t understand why anyone buys a Volvo. The interior is NOT high quality, if anything they’re super cheap inside. The leather they use ages terribly. It cracks and absorbs stains like a sponge. I also can’t believe anyone thinks their infotainment system is very easy to use or logically thought out. Their digital gauge cluster sucks too. It’s not configurable at all and low resolution. Their engines are also weak.
