All in all, the V50 2.4i is a good, safe, efficient station wagon, although the 168-horsepower engine in this base model seemed inadequate at times to some. The T5 trims are probably better for those who live in areas with steep hills or a lot of two-lane roads where they often need to pass slower drivers. Of course, part of the trade-off is in fuel economy, with the 2.4i holding the advantage of several miles per gallon with its 22 city/30 highway rating.
Air bags, ABS, traction and stability control, and the integrated passenger-safety features are all standard equipment. So are air conditioning, power windows and door locks, and a CD player, but on this trim power seats must be opted for and purchased as part of a package. The same goes for the coveted heated front seats, but they pay for themselves all winter and sometimes on rainy days in other seasons.
Adds to 2.4i:
No additional major features.

The base model, with its smaller stable of horses, fits the needs for many, but others just have to have something more when their right foot goes down. The sporty and versatile V50 T5 delivers, thanks to its 218-hp, turbocharged engine.
Those who prefer a station wagon but don't need the space of the V70 love the V50 for its increased sportiness, both in look and feel. You can get around town with relative efficiency and still pass that logging truck that seems stuck in granny gear on the two-lane approaching the ski area.
We certainly don't recommend getting into it with the logging truck, or even a Yugo, for that matter, but accidents do happen sometimes, and the smart cookies at Volvo know it. They've built their reputation on safety, and that excellent rep is well earned. In addition to all of the protective features in the body and passenger cage, systems such as ABS, stability and traction control, and air bags are all standard equipment.
Drivers of the V50 T5 praised it for its zip and sporty handling. In comparison to the tried-and-true V70 wagons, the more compact size makes this one seem more hip and less like Mom's Taxi. It's especially popular with young parents who need a safe car with a place to stash a stroller, and dog owners of all ages are sold on it, too.

All-wheel drive, a suspension on the stiff side, and a turbocharged, 218-horsepower engine make this a true sports wagon. That may be an oxymoron to some, but let's look at what the John and Jane Q. Driver are looking for these days to carry their 2.1 children and golden retriever.
Yes, there's a serious market for it. Consider the T5 AWD an SUV-alternative to those who have similar needs but prefer a vehicle that's literally more down to earth.
And what's more down to earth than survival? Well, this car, like any Volvo, was built to preserve life. State-of-the-art safety features are considered standard equipment, from the side-impact beams within the doors to the latest in seatbelt technology. ABS and stability and traction control are also included, joining the all-wheel drive in truly rounding out this versatile vehicle.
Cold-climate drivers love this one, especially when it comes with the optional seat-heaters. It's great in snow, and it has enough cargo space to accommodate gear on those ski trips.
