Best Engine + Future Models

This is for those who may be still unaware of the Drive-E engine winning Ward's 10 Best Engines for 2 years out of three which is quite remarkable -



Also there is a good update on Volvo's forthcoming new models -


I'm personally hoping the V40 will get a version of the T6 motor.

MY15 Cross Country T5 Lux Chrystal White Pearl,
Polestar, Centre Court Console, Park Assist, Seat Heat

MY15 S60 Polestar - Sapphire Black with REAL dipstick and NO start/stop.

Judging from this additional news item from Caradvice, you may get your wish.

The Volvo spokesman clearly indicates the T8 plug-in will be available across the next generation 60 series and the new XC40. While not explicitly mentioning the next generation V40 this would seem to indicate the T6 twin-charged engine (which is the petrol engine used in the T8 hybrid) may find its way into the V40, probably as a range-topping Polestar model.

As for the "awards" from Wards Best Engine - despite being a Volvo tragic I really would not get too excited. The Wards Best Engine Awards are fairly meaningless. Being US-based they only apply to engines available in the US market (which eliminates almost all diesels) and have to have been released in that particular year. And there is a total of 10 engines "awarded" each year. I really don't think there's that many new engines released each year. The awards are purely based on technological innovation and don't take into account any measure of reliability or real-life fuel economy. Fairly meaningless in my eyes.
