Having previously owned a V6 Camry, this Volvo seems slightly under powered. But one gets use to the power curve very quickly. The Volvo seems to corner very well and I think the seats have something to do with the cornering feel. Gas mileage stays aroung 22mpg city and 28+ highway. There are many small features that once you become familiar with, help to make this model a pleasure to own & drive.......
Front seats, without a doubt.
More power on the non turbo version motor would improve the acceleration greatly. Tighter steering at speeds above 60mph would also help.
