    There's nothing else like it on the road today. As if to mark the occasion, one of its originators — Volvo — has moved back into the niche. But as tested here, the car bounces over pavement imperfections and feels just a bit too stiff in a lot of daily-use situations. Roadshow Newsletter Love cars?

It only takes a few seconds. We drove the refreshed model last year. While we were impressed, compared to the competition, the car was expensive and dated.

    Still, the limited-production model was never going to be a runaway success and a diehard Volvo enthusiast was never going to look for anything else. It is the only wagon in the class, too. The V60 Polestar is powered by a "twincharged" — supercharged and turbocharged — 2. That powertrain replaced the turbo inline-six and six-speed auto from the original Polestar V Polestar models come with inch wheels and summer tires, though this one was wearing winter rubber.

    Inside, the V60 Polestar comes with heated sport seats with black leather and blue stitching. The same color combo can be found on the shift boot, center console and steering wheel. There's matte carbon-fiber trim on the center stack that matches the carbon front splitter and mirror caps.

    As a kid, I remember poking around in the garage to get a look at his Volvo ES. Along the way he also owned Volvo , and Series wagons. My mother owned a Volvo V70 R that regularly blew the doors off Camaros and Mustangs at stoplight drags. I learned to drive in that car. In fact, the only vehicle that had more of an impact on me growing up was probably the Chevy Corvette.

    My dad has owned I'm convinced nearly every product Volvo has ever produced has been timeless. Even several years on, the outgoing V60's design holds up. The Polestar blue and carbon-fiber accents help, but the car is still fantastic in white, black and silver. No one does clean wagon designs like the Swedes. It drives great, too. The twincharged engine is smooth and powerful.

    The supercharger does a great job of filling in power until the turbo spools up. It provides some nice whine, too. It's just loud enough to not be obnoxious. The eight-speed pops off upshifts with crisp confidence. The steering is quick and reasonably responsive. I'm sure something other than winter tires would help. This was the first time I've had a chance to drive a Polestar-tuned Volvo. In our review, we said that the V60 Polestar was a car for Volvo enthusiasts. I am that enthusiast.

    The Audi S4 that's currently in the Autoblog garage is a perfect example. Compared to the Volvo, the Audi is quicker, more comfortable, more refined and features a thoroughly modern interior.
