I'd rather not repeat the comments made by that little hobbit Hammond about Volvos, but Top Gear placed the V70 (R-Design) as cooler than cool. In fact it was placed as Sub-Zero on the cool wall.

The explanation of why it is such a cool car was a bit wierd (something about Volvo being a non-brand), but it was nice to see Volvo up there with Aston Martins etc.

Forgive the ignorant, but is Sub-Zero good or super bad?

In my engineering mind it is latter.

Re: (Token)

True, they did.

I'm still not sure why though. They were saying a whole lot of nothing.

BTW, that makes BOTH the cars I drive either Sub-Zero or Cool on the Cool wall.

Hammond was an ass. Because I own a Volvo wagon yet have no trouble stopping when I pee...

They had a great time making fun of the S60R, but loved the V70R just because it was a great wagon.
Jeremy Clarkson has an XC90 in the stable next to his CLK63 Black Series. There definitely is a little love for Volvo on Top Gear, just not from a performance standpoint.
