Totally enjoyable "compromise" between a functional car and a sports car. Passengers are universally compelled to comment that this is not what they expect from Volvo. They are very impressed. It looks great in a quiet way. Lots of fun.
computer assisted handling and suspension with the awd makes the car a pure joy to drive on the road, esp two lane country ways in the rain!
the interior could be upgraded with less plastic and a little more attention to creature comforts such as storage and drink holders. Hardly a serious problem.
