This car is sporty and I have the added
assurance of safety. Acceleration is
excellent; cornering is acceptable (not
exceptional). A wind-noise problem was
solved with some extra insulation at
the mirror. Definitely purchase
Michelin when you have to replace the
tires because it rides much quieter and
handles much better with the Michelin
Sports Vs. the Pirelli tires. Interior
design could be improved to allow more
accessibility. The upgraded stereo
features are not necessary, and I
actually prefer the ‘normal’ settings.
This car is an excellent choice if you
prefer sporty styling and appreciate
the quality of Volvo.
