Driving Impressions  - 2006 Volvo V50 Review - Reviews - Volvo V50

Volvo's smallest wagon is just as refined and tightly built as the bigger V70, if a bit snug inside. Performance is a strong point with the turbocharged model, but the T5's ride can get rough on harsher surfaces and a little jittery even when rolling through moderate imperfections. The T5's manual gearbox operates easily, and Volvo's automatic operates smoothly. An all-wheel-drive V50 behaved admirably on snow and ice.
