I absolutely love this car. I bought it for less than $33K with premium package and metallic paint, which is several thousand less than the closest contender, Audi Q5. I like its style and handling better. Interior may not look as flashy but is made of equal grade materials. Seats and ride are super comfortable. 3.2L engine provides plenty of power yet manages to give you 27 MPG on highway which is excellent in this class. The exterior styling is awesome, powerful and slightly aggressive, especially if you look from close distance. 5 year warranty and free maintenance are unbeatable, and you probably heard about the safety features. This is my first Volvo and I am thoroughly impressed!
Remote-controlled LED illumination at night - looks way cool; huge sunroof that is not completely opaque even when closed; very comfortable seats and overall ride; exterior look
Braking is actually very good but the feeling is slightly mushy; maybe I will try putting on ceramic brake pads when this set gets worn out
