Try parallel parking at night when there is no outdoor lighting and it might change your mind about your purchase of this model without buying the Bliss feature. Tinted and extra small rear windows make it hard to see at night. Volvo does not make an adequate dog gate for this model and the one you may have from your wagon will not fit.
Car is very comfortable and smooth driving.
The tinted rear view mirror is a real problem when backing into a parallel parking space when there is no outdoor lighting. It is almost impossible to see anything so BLISS is a must. There is a large blind spot behind the oversized side mirrors. Rear cargo area much smaller than previous wagon.
