Volvo Reviews

New Cars
Good: Good to drive. Packed with safety kit including ‘City Safety’ as standard. Geartronic start/stop. New 2.0 Volvo D4 diesel from 2014 under 100g/km CO2.
Bad: Decent handling comes at the expense of ride at times. CO2 emissions were only average for this class of car until new Volvo diesel arrived in 2014.
Good: Genuine premium feel with a luxury interior. 2.0-litre diesel engine is impressively quiet and smooth. Exellent ride comfort. Good value for money alongside the competition.
Bad: Limited engine range. Boot is deep but the opening not that large.
Good: Very comfortable and refined with excellent ride. Smooth and economical engines. Relaxing to drive.
Bad: Steering could do with more weight. Interior starting to feel dated, especially next to more recent Volvo models.
Good: Clever safety systems. Impressive direct injected petrol engines. Comfortable seats. New 2.0 Volvo D4 diesel from 2014 under 100g/km CO2. AWD gives steering more 'feel'.
Bad: Artificial steering feel. Ride struggles on rough surfaces. Not a load carrier like traditional Volvo estates. Five cylinder engines dropped from late 2013.
Good: Beautifully finished cabin. High level of standard equipment. Extremely impressive safety technology.
Bad: Smaller boot than rivals. Apple CarPlay a cost option.
Good: Good value when compared to similar premium off-road estates, strong performance and impressive refinement from both D4 and D5. Excellent seats are ideal for long distances.
Bad: Standard boot space isn't as big as a Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain.
Good: Comfortable and classy SUV that can be packed with autonomous safety kit. T8 petrol plug-in hybrid will cover 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds.
Bad: Most of the autonomous kit costs extra. No 'feel' at all to the steering. Not as sharp to drive as its rivals. Has one of the smallest boots in its class.
Good: Incredibly refined and quiet on the move. High quality cabin with room for seven. Well equipped as standard. D5 is smooth yet punchy with good economy. T8 has tax advantages.
Bad: Gargantuan size can make parking a challenge. Petrol engine is pricier than the diesel. T8 hybrid only does 35-40mpg in normal driving. Complaints of recurrent software glitches.
