The overall fit and finish of this car is sexy. I've
had nothing but stares and compliments since
purchasing this vehicle. Many are amazed to find
that it's a Volvo. The commute is smooth and
quiet. I can't say too much about acceleration,
however, because I've been breaking the car in
slowly - but I read that the car reacts quickly and
examines your driving style (aggressive/passive)
and adjusts to accomodate accordingly.
I love both the outside and inside. Volvo has gotten
it right this time around. I like the 12 speaker
sound system, slim console design, auto up/down
for all windows, audio controls on the steering
wheel, and appoach/homesafe lighting (simply
beautiful at night).
Move the audio controls to the lefthand side of the
steering wheel, and the cruise buttons to the right.
I think people will use the audio buttons more than
the cruise buttons, and the audio buttons are more
easily accessible on the lefthand side, especially if
you're driving a manual.
