The show’s corny humor and rapid-fire one-liners reminded me of Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In , which I watched regularly as a kid. And I knew the lyrics to all the show’s songs; I heard ’em a million times on my car radio back in the day, and let’s just say that this was the music that eventually converted me into a confirmed public-radio listener.
Well, it’s hard for us to encourage anyone to consider the plug-in hybrid 7-series, as we prefer more efficient models. The previous generation (740e xDrive) sold just 1,112 units over 29 months in the U.S. (at an average of 38 per month).
The soft top does have one downside compared to a hardtop, and that’s the noise that protrudes into the cabin at higher speeds. With the roof up, there will be plenty of it muffling anything else inside the cabin. Fold the roof and you’ll get wind noise, so you’re not really enjoying quietness in any given situation, except maybe when cruising at under 80 km/h (50 mph). That’s something you need to know when buying a convertible though and that’s one of the reasons why I always recommend people buying such a car to go for the top tier sound system, in this case, Harman/Kardon. If you want to hear some music, in a drop top, you need some serious power. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to test out at what speed the wind becomes too much inside the cabin, forcing you to raise the roof, but I know that won’t be a problem as it takes just 10 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph).

How low-key bitchin’ is that? No matter what trim you get, you’re gonna get it with the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine capable of producing 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. And with 31 mpg and Eco mode you’ll be living up to your environmentally friendly responsibilities. Also standard is the enormous 12.3 inches diagonal screen which works pretty much exactly like a phone. Also also, all the tech features you could ever want in a car, Apple Car Play, lane assist, the works. Volvos are nothing if not incredibly safe gadgets disguised as cars.

At some point during the spring of 2014, Kaltschmidt learned Oilfield Warriors had spent roughly $175,000 in two months but had not cleaned a single rig or piece of equipment, the lawsuit states. It further alleges that unbeknownst to Kaltschmidt, Shannon established JD Services and Hire America’s Finest at or about the same time as the formation of Oilfield Warriors, both companies that competed actively with Oilfield Warriors.
Even in Eco and Normal driving modes (more so in Sport), the RAV4 is slow to respond to accelerator inputs. Apply throttle pressure, and it takes a second for the engine to get the car moving. Apply more pressure, and the RAV lurches forward unnaturally. In spite of its naturally aspirated engine, the RAV’s throttle lag will fool some into thinking it’s engine sports a slow-to-spool turbo. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder produces just 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Otherwise, the eight-speed automatic and four-cylinder engine work together cohesively.
