2006 Volvo V50 T5 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I love this car. It's the smallest of the three Volvos I've owned (previous cars: 245DL wagon and an 850 sedan), but by far the most fun. I wanted a car with sports car-like handling and acceleration, but I also wanted space in the back to accommodate, for instance, a couple of bales of peat moss. I got it all. The car flies--merging onto the highway is really fun now--and its power is evident at low RPMs, too. I have the brushed aluminum interior and it's very cool. Cons: There's not a great deal of storage space up front, and the back seats are a little tight for normal-sized adults, but we have an SUV for long trips. A great driver's car.

Best Features

Power, handling, safety, interior design, rear space.

Worst Features

More storage space up front. How about a hybrid version?
