I also have a V40. I love the V50T. It drives great, gets good gas mileage. We are retirees, but we enjoy the spunk, reputation, and durability of the vehicle. The style is outstanding. We have a lot of people come up and admire the car.
They include: driving, style, get up and go, gas mileage, colors.The transmission is great. Visibility is good. It is a fun car to drive!
More storage. The V40 had plenty of storage. They did away with half of it in the V50. Do away with the new space fabric for seats. Make leather on all cars. My velco flap covers on my back pockets fuzzed the fabric.
