Volvo V50 Estate review - What Car?
Read the What Car? Volvo V50 review http://bit.ly/zZWY7H
The Volvo V50 is a fine drive, with punchy diesel engines, sharp handling
and lots of grip. The cabin is solid, stylish, and well equipped.
The V50 isn't as spacious as many cheaper estate rivals and can't match
some prestige-badged competitors for class, refinement or residuals.

Volvo V50 D5 (0-140 km/h)
Fully automatic and just stepped on it. Decent for a diesel I think.
180bhp/350Nm. 0-100 in just under 8 seconds.
