Owned v50 for over a year. Styling is excellent. After a year, still like looking at the car. The interior is unequaled in this class,
high-end minimalism, nothing annoying visually.
Power is not one horsepower more or less than 'average'. Wish it had 5 more horses at least, but not bad. Disappointing mileage--18-19 city, and maybe 22 highway. Should be better! The handling is so-so. The suspension takes bumps fairly hard, and feels 'rough' on dips and larger bumps or road imperfections. Just stable enough. Feels European, in a good, but not great way. Good utility. Good space. Visibility is compromised by FAT pillars. Overall, recommend this car. But... don't love it really.
MPG! Car should take bumps better. Improve visibilty--pillars are too wide.
