The all-new Volvo XC60 has a touch act to follow. Remarkably, the old Volvo XC60 sold in greater numbers in 2016 than in any previous year, despite being a nine year old design and facing competition from the likes of the new Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC, plus the Land Rover Discovery Sport and BMW X3.

But here is that all-new XC60, looking obviously new and yet reassuringly familiar at the same time. Beneath the skin it sits on the same platform as the XC90 and S and V90, so has a range of four-cylinder, 2-litre petrol and diesel engines. 

This is the 232bhp D5, which comes as standard with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Find out what our tester Matt Prior thinks of Volvo's new 4x4 in the video above.

It looks even worse moving than in photographs. A bit like a sinkhole. Which, if there were any justice, would more frequently open under jeeps. Volvo should stick to making cars, they produce such fine estates which are far superior to this crappy jeep.

I don't need to put my name here, it's on the left

    Sixth-generation Mustang gets a leaner face, revised suspension, improved safety equipment and a more power V8. We see how it fares on southern French roads

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.

    Super saloon deploys four-wheel drive to improve every facet of its driving experience. Faster and more capable than any, and more exciting than most, of its celebrated predecessors

    More power and an intoxicating soundtrack have breathed new life into our love affair with the biggest, baddest Range Rover Sport variant

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
