2009 Volvo V50 T5 R-Design 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
V50 R, is my 4th Volvo (still have XC90 and C30, recently traded xc70) First impression is the V5o isn't up t the high standard of the others. I really got the feeling that I was in a rebadged Focus. Funny thing is though this car can grow you on. The comforts are subtle. Performance is great, handling is top notch( unless you hit bumps then you feel the sport suspension) For city driving with the kids it is perfect, neither too small( C30, nor too big XC90) Volvo has switched to this clunky menu/ enter / select / exit audio and phone control system which stinks. Huge distraction which ought not be tried while driving. Odd development for a car that promotes safety. The previous was better
Favorite Features
Turbo, sweet pull off, no noticeable lag. The dash notifies you when the kids put on seatbelts.... nice touch.
Suggested Improvements
thin out the front pillars- they obstructed front end vision too much. Get rid of audio / phone menus, bring back the old system. Parking sensors wouldn't hurt. Add home link
