Overall reliability

Nice looking, reliable, but small

I used to own a V70, which I liked a lot, and when it expired moved over to a v50. While it is nice to look at, and has a pretty timeless look (so even though it is 10, still looks modern). It has the same economy as my previous v70 although it is a smaller car. Seems reliable enough, have done 20k in a year without any problems. Not hugely sporty considering it's 220bhp. Nice enough to drive, but a bit bland and the gearbox is a bit notchy.
