The Volvo S40-T5 is a compact family car with the driving charactistics of a sports car. The adjustability of drivers seat and steering column make it even for a tail person like myself possible to be confortable in the S40- T5. Acceleration is impressive but will not set track records. The car is very sturdy built and the excellent reputation that Volvo has regarding safety was one of the factors why I bought the S40-T5. If you are like me and keep your vehicles for a long time (8-10 years)A Volvo is the car to consider.
Exterior design and sporty looks, interior; seats confort and adjustability, Dashboard lay-out. Handling.
rear view mirrors should be a little larger. some more interior storage like bigger door pockets would be nice.
