2008 Volvo V50 Review Ratings
2008 Volvo V50 2.4i Review
Styling, handling, comfort, touch and feel, friendly and elegant approach
Fuel consumption, road noise in the rear seat
My Volvo V50 — My Volvo V50 is a smart sporty wagon with great comfort and nice styling, on the exterior as well as in the interior. It's very nimble on the road and turns into corners with precision and brio. The petrol five-cylinder has a nice character and runs smoothly and sounds great during acceleration. My only dislikes are high fuel consumption and NVH in the rear seat (but the later should have been improved since the update). There's also a great sounding audio system (Volvo's High Performance).
2008 Volvo V50 T5 AWD Review
It has a smooth drive unlike any car i have been in.
I dont know why anyone would avoid it.
For Its Drive I Would Give It A 10/10 — Its acceleration is not urgent and as it goes around corners it glides rather then jurkes u in the derection and for £25000 its money well spent for it is a very fun car to drive and keep and i would say it is the best family car i own.

Solid, Safe, Stylish
We needed something bigger than our 4-door golf for our family of 4. And I had no interest in a minivan. We looked at Mercedes E-class (too big), C-class (too unreliable), and Subaru - great car, alm... Read More
Most Fun Wagon I Ever Owned.
Volvo still makes a good car but sometimes it seems that style is the last thing they think about. The V50 Sportwagon breaks that stereotype. The car is well designed with sufficient room and yet it... Read More
What A Volvo
It goes 0-100 km/t in 7,2 sec, 235 km/t on top. 220 bhp. It is just nice to drive. Very nice comfort, lovely design, good quality. It´s maybe not a sportscar, but it makes a good compromice Read More
Performance with 220 horsepower is very adequate. Handling is ok. The car itself has not so much faults but the local service is a real joke. I like the overall appearance and interior decoration. Thi... Read More
