Purchased this month with 33,400 miles. 2.4L base engine.
I am returning to Volvo after Mercedes and Acura and purchased this car because of the seat comfort, overall safety and solid highway ride.
I spend 22,00 miles a year on the highway so comfort is a priority.
The seat is sublime, by far the best of any car I have owned, including past Volvo's. Speed sensitive steering makes it easy around town, heavy on the highway.
Love the classic styling.
No anxiety on I-95 in the rain, between trucks. The 2.4L base engine is underpowered, no C240 or TSX for sure.
With premium fuel acceleration is acceptable. Frankly, I can see having this car for 300,000 miles.
The seat. Excellent visibility. Powerful brakes. Quiet highway ride. Crash worthiness.
Interior ergonomics: simple and straightforward. Elegant, timeless styling.
Less brake dust! (Yikes!)
