We love this vehicle. It is an outstanding vehicle for people who want complete versatility, luxury, and european driving qualities without having to climb up into a high SUV. It has absolutely the best seats in the industry. We haul children's families, grandchildren, greatgrandmothers (who cannot climb into a higher vehicle), and friends. We haul construction materials for projects on a home in vermont- all with the confidence of Volvo safety, reliability and very good mileage. With the rooftop carrier we have as much capacity as a large SUV.
