ReviewI have previously had a mazda rx7 and a performance-oriented moddified blazer and this "brick" (nickname for volvo's) is turning out to be my favorite out of the three on the street. Its sporty yet street suspension is fun while still comfortable and its turbocharged strait5 has a lot of potential and Ive found it to be quite reliable. I'm currently running 300 horsepower w/ just a chip and ported cylinder heads and haven't had any problems with the stock transmission not to mention the rest of the wonderfully engineered swedish touring car. The heated leather and premium sound are also very nice and so is the wood trim.
Best FeaturesReliable 5cylinder, turbo, great ride, unsuspected power, economy/sport/winter modes, firm transmission shifts, overall confidence in car
Worst FeaturesThey dont make too many 205/50 tires and if you go to 205/55 they scrape the wheel wells when turning sharp. Also theres an amount of torque steer even stock so I gave it a 9 for performance
