BMW 3 Series vs. Volvo S60

Talking Cars #207

Main theme: BMW 3 Series vs. Volvo S60


We learned a lot about these sedans through an intense battery of tests and by also living with them. Our panel discusses how these two match up and which one they would buy with their own money.


Audience questions:


  • Is the 2019 Toyota RAV4 interior smaller than in the previous generation?
  • Would all-weather tires be a good choice for a Southern Californian who also likes to drive where it snows?
  • Will Volkswagen diesels ever be forced off American roads?
  • And much more.
