RPM TV Ep 379: New Volvo S90 D5. Facelifted Mazda BT50. Mercedes-Benz S500e. Mini Clubman update.
Our second show of the new season kicks off with a drive of the sleek and innovative Volvo S90 sedan. The Swedish saloon is also stylish and safe, with an XC90-inspired cabin – which is a very good thing. We test the turbodiesel-powered S90 Inscription.
The Mazda BT-50 is a close relative of the hugely popular Ford Ranger. Even so, it has not been able to emulate the Ford’s success. A package of exterior and interior updates has created a much more pleasing machine.
The Mercedes-Benz S 500e combines the space and luxury of one of the world’s top large, luxury sedans with cutting-edge hybrid technology. But does the combination convince in pure, ‘green’ motoring terms?
Finally, we have an update on our long-term Mini Cooper Clubman, which will soon be heading off for a service at a local dealership. Meanwhile our news coverage includes items on the just launched Audi Q2, and the BMW 760Li xDrive.
