The standard, 28-mpg, T5 turbocharged 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine, produces 250 horsepower with 266 pound-feet of torque, with 0 to 60 mph in under seven seconds. A smooth, six-speed automatic with sport mode transfers power to the wheels.
Volvo does not shortcut the interior and it never has. Standard leather seats are particularly notable for their comfort. The 160 watt, 8-speaker audio system will impress every audiophile. Other standard features include hands-free BlueTooth, a multi-function sport steering wheel, dual-zone electronic climate control, power eight-way adjustable driver seat and Volvo’s infotainment system, Sensus Connect, comes with an integrated seven-inch color display in the dashboard.
Options include speed sensitive steering, rear-seat entertainment, a blind spot system with parking assist, sport pedals and an upgraded climate package that includes heated front and rear seats. Optional 19-inch wheels enhance ride comfort and wheel protection against road hazards like potholes.
The standard package is perfectly comfortable, with plenty of technology and safety features for any driver. If one does live in areas of long, rough weather or unpaved roads, pair the climate package for heated seats and the larger wheel/tire option to improve handling and all-weather ride comfort.
