  • Driving it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Very good on the motorway, plenty of pulling power once it is up to speed. However the engine can at times feels underpowered, the 170 or a V6 diesel would be better. So-so away from main roads, it's no BMW (or even a Ford).

    What's it like to park?

    Not a problem if you're used to big cars, can feel quite long though. Would be better with sensors.

  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing at all, completely faultless reliability. However, for a family with 3 young children nothing like as good a family car as our previous Volvo V70.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Plenty of leg room, good size boot.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Good inbuilt sat nav, the interior still felt bulletproof when we sold it at 80k miles.
