Under the Hood  - 2006 Volvo V50 Review - Reviews - Volvo V50

A 2.4-liter inline-five-cylinder produces 168 horsepower in the base wagon. The high-performance T5 holds a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder that generates 218 hp and 236 pounds-feet of torque. Both models can be equipped with an adaptive Geartronic five-speed-automatic transmission, but a six-speed-manual gearbox is standard on the T5. Haldex all-wheel drive is optional.
