I went from an XC70 AWD to this car because I wanted a more spirited car. I got what I wanted. It is terrific to drive, comfortable and gets good mileage. This is a great car if you find yourself commuting alone.
Tight feel on the road. Good accelleration. Excellent seats with good support. A lot of space to carry stuff. It is about 300 lbs lighter than the full sized wagon and has a more robust engine. I am delighted with my choice.
