    Best one-liner about the Volvo V50

    • From the driver's seat, it's easy to forget you're in a station wagon.

      - Car and Driver
    • The automatic transmission, a five-speed Geartronic, exhibits few of the annoying traits typical of both manumatics and overly protective mothers.

      - Car and Driver
    • Just when you thought the typical car dashboard couldn't be improved upon, Volvo comes up with the coolest-looking center stack this side of Stockholm.
