the dash is so well built, and easily matches or even betters the quality of some its German counterparts

The entry Volvo may not have any of that fancy open pore wood treatment which graces their flagship S90 executive sedan. There is plenty of plastic going around, but the dash is so well built, and easily matches or even betters the quality of some its German counterparts.

The key highlight, being the “floating” centre console is very pretty, with buttons which do have a wonderful tactile feel to them. Unfortunately, the very same system, while it would have been an excellent feature to have in a car back in the early 2000s, comes across as rather dated, and it does lack the modern-day intuitiveness and definitely not the best for those who suffer a serious case of Koumpounophobia (the fear of buttons). Thankfully, there is a USB port, sited within the storage box for charging and USB-‘driving’ purposes.

Behind the wheel, our R-Design trim model benefits from a fancily-designed fully digitised instrument panel, with speed readings cleverly displayed large and clear in the centre of the rev-counter.

The full leather upholstery from Scottish cows is a wonderful touch, and the driver’s side is equipped with electric adjusters, with three memory settings. There are large door pockets all around, with passengers at the rear benefitting from their own personal container, nestled on the outer sides of the rear seats. Rear legroom is pretty decent for two adults, though a fifth adult may find it a squeeze.

While it does have a wagon-ish rear end, cargo room in reality is just an acceptable 324 litres, though with the rear 60:40 rear seats folded, storage is pretty good at 1,021 litres. There is however that high boot lip to deal with, and there is also the kerb left by the rear seats, meaning that fitting longer and fragile items might be an issue.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
