Great Little Wagon

Worth a look if you need a flexible vehicle for a small family. Power is solid even with auto although doesn't "feel" as quick as I expected. Seats are super comfortable. New cloth/suede material is very nice and seems to be more durable than old Volvo cloth/vinyl interiors. Gas tank is a little small compared to other Volvos but we average 27 mpg in mixed driving, best was 30. We already have snow on the ground and the DTSC keeps it sure footed even without AWD--I'm not convinced it is worth the extra plus you loss mpg.
Seats and material. Center stack and controls. Turbo.
Door storage almost useless. Key is cool looking but bulkier than normal.
