Driving Impressions  - 2008 Volvo V50 Review - Reviews - Volvo V50

Even when equipped with the automatic transmission, the V50 2.4i accelerates with spirit, though the engine growls when pushed. Despite a taut suspension, ride comfort is generally satisfactory, but the sedan can hit some bumps rather hard. We have yet to drive the newly upgraded T5.

Stable on the road, the V50 maneuvers easily and delivers appealing control. Curves produce only modest body lean, and it's easy to forget that you're piloting a wagon as opposed to a sedan. Occupants tend to sit on top of the seats rather than in them, but they still prove supportive and comfortable during long drives.
