03 OTHER OPTIONS YOU MAY CONSIDER

-

An old 335i offers the executive experience along with boosted inline-six power. It won’t feel anywhere near as special as the bespoke Volvo, or quite as fast. There are a lot more available asking a lot less money, though.

2. THE UNEXPECTED: MERCEDES-BENZ E55 AMG

After a muscular sports sedan? It’s hard to go past the W211 E55 AMG sedan. With a 5.5-litre supercharg­ed V8 under the bonnet, it outguns the Polestar by almost 100kW. At this price point, however, mileages will be very high.

3. THE ODDBALL: HOLDEN COMMODORE VF SS V

Sports sedan, you say? How could we forget our homegrown heroes? The dollar travels less and less in the Australian sector these days, but you can still slide into a V8 Commodore for between $50 and $60k if you look hard enough.
