    Nice Attempt, But ... — I tested this car before buying the 330i. You really gotta go for the T6 or, better: the 8-cyl engine, coz the rest sucks, especially the D5 diesel.

    Pros: Good looking SUV

    Cons: Real engines cost an arm & a leg

    Safety, Size, Equipemnt, Flexibility And Power If Only The Fwd Had Some Grip !! — Volvo are renowned for their safety and as far as i can tell the car delivers, big thick doors, DSTC aka traction control/dynamic stability and a few more in there anti rolling etc and the thing doesn't cut in to early or to late and is unobtrusive same goes with the EBD ABS it will let the wheels chirp just abit before either ABS or traction control cut in to save the day, airbags EVERYWHERE (and volvo's SIPS, side impact protection system) it is the only car in it's class to have airbags that cover the rearmost seats) and power a plenty (in the 5 cylinder turbo (intercooled) model) and the V8 is quicker again so no drama overtaking, the 5 speed gear box shifts nicely does though have a tendency to hunt for gears and with the turbo cutting in and out can make for some clunky gear changes and the manual mode gears are the wrong way around (push up/forwards for + and down/back for -), but it copes well enough. The engine sounds nice (5 cylinder is odd) however it isn't fantastic on fuel (I average around 16mpg however it is all city driving in LA traffic) and it has a small tank, meaning a small range, which means your always filling it up. It also has a rather large and oddly placed blind spot that take some getting use to , it is very well equipped auto headlights, auto wipers, dual zone climate control, sunroof, leather and rear parking sensors* option there are also alot of clever features such as heated side mirrors the outside glass is also coated with a film that repels water the recirculate (air in cabin) can be put on a timer, and the 7 seats can moved into any position imaginable great family car!
