THE VOLVO TURBO AS MOST COMMONLY VIEWED FROM A BMW 318i
The posterior of a Volvo Turbo may not be its most attractive feature, but it's the one BMW 318i owners will be seeing a lot of.
In an independent test* of 0 to 60 acceleration, the intercooled Turbo from Volvo beat the 318i by almost two seconds.
Results like this have prompted Car and Driver to call the Volvo Turbo "a missile."
And Road & Track describes its handling and performance as "Exemplary."
So before you run out and buy the ultimate driving machine, test drive the intercooled Turbo from Volvo.
It could prevent you from becoming one of those BMW owners with 20/20 hindsight.
*Tests of acceleration conducted by Car and Driver.
