Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered
Fast Volvos are an acquired taste, but if you love Scandinavian thrillers, you’ll love this. It’s unassuming with a dash of menace, thanks to 400 horsepower and top-shelf Öhlins suspension components.

Mercedes-AMG C43 Wagon
If you’re looking for a fun daily driver that no one else in your neighbourhood will have, get this. It’s not the full-fat AMG 63 model, but still plenty quick with 385 horsepower from a twin-turbo V6.
