2.5 TDI, engine is the Audi sourced variant, bullet proff reliability, 50 mpg. Interior is a bit boring, but if you are looking for a cheap no nonsense workhorse its highly recommended. In my 2 years of drinving it, covering 80,000 miles I had no real issues, save for a Toyota Avensis, that wrote itself off after driving into the Volvos front driverside quater panel. Damage to the Volvo, 1 headlamp lens, and 1 wing. Drove home, Avensis, dragged away on a truck. 1 - 0 to the Volvo. Through a timing belt at 120,000 miles, no damage to the engine. replaced belt, started engine, drove home.
Beautiful exhaust note, better built and finished than bigger S80, the best seats in any car you can find, let down by horrific resale value
excellent interior design
drivers seat could be more supportive and comfortable
