“Fantastic combination of performance (it's the T5 version) and practicality.”

Mr Graham Allan - Hants

“Typical good Volvo build quality. My car has a tendency to steer itself only partly cured by fitting a different brand of tyre. This and the poor turning circle are the main reasons for not buying this model again.”

Mr Ian Quinney - Burntisland

“Cracking car, still looks the part after a wash and 100,000 miles. The leather interior holds up well and the seats are as comfortable as people say.”

Mr Jim Sweetman - Suffolk

“Great practicality and comfort. Way overpriced and too expensive for parts and running costs. Best seats ever.”

Mr Matthew Slack - Rossendale

In fairness, these are all fair wear and tear for a car with 105,000 miles on the clock. The stering lock could be better, but overall it is extremely comfortable and returns 44+ mpg.”

Mr Alisdair Tweddle - Hampshire
