Exterior  - 2006 Volvo V50 Review - Reviews - Volvo V50

Some V50 design characteristics were borrowed from early Volvo wagons. Still, styling hasn't veered dramatically away from the V40. Volvo notes that "from above, the body resembles the shape of a sleek speedboat, with a rounded prow, a broad mid-ship section and a narrowing stern."

Designed with softly rounded lines overall, the V50 has a short hood and a cab-forward profile, led by a protruding upright eggcrate grille with a diagonal cross-member. Outside mirrors contain turn-signal repeaters.

Built on a 103.9-inch wheelbase, the V50 is 177.7 inches long overall — 1.8 inches longer than the S40 sedan. Several aluminum wheel styles are offered. A Dynamic Trim Package for the T5 adds 17-inch aluminum wheels and front, rear and side spoilers.
