The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 BMW M3 is a track-ready sports sedan with an unblemished pedigree that announces to the world: "Ask me what DTM means." The 2017 Volvo V60 wagon is practical and spacious, with some of the best seats in the business. Trust us—no really, trust us—this is just as capable as an SUV. The 2017 Volvo XC60 is a near-luxury contender at near-luxury prices. Its safety might be its biggest strong suit, which it rightly deserves.
