This Volvo definitely has an appealing design both on the outside and the inside. The engine is fun to drive and the car handles well in a sport driving mode due to its compact size. The fuel consumption is a bit more than what I expected for a small engine and the finishing could be better (noise isolation). Overall, this car gives great driving pleasure and has a certain class for a price which remains very affordable compared to other Euro imports in the same category.
* excellent design * solid engine * good handling * Optional 12-speaker surround system! * Euro car luxury feel
* Fuel consumption * Finishing could be improved (door lock notch rattles when driving in the unlocked position)
