One is a ground-up sports car while the other is ground-up sedan/coupe with 4/5 seats and a cavernous trunk. One is better at being a sports car (strange, huh?) while the other beats the...

Who doesn't? I drool over new Volvo V90, but without proper engine, I am NOT paying that price for it. Any price, actually. Yes, I did try that wunderkind of an engine in XC90 T6 and it was...

328d is a four cylinder diesel, 2.0 liter displacement. It is still more agile than a 6. Inside the grand coupe and with ZF 8 speed AT it was phenomenal. For my seat of the pants, way more fun than...
