V50

Volvo's compact V50 is the station wagon version of the S40, and is likewise based on the Mazda3 platform. It also comes powered by either a 168-horsepower, 2.4-liter five-cylinder powerplant, mated to a five-speed manual transmission, or - in the performance-minded T5 model - a 218-horsepower, turbocharged engine that comes with a six-speed gearbox. A five-speed automatic is optional. A Haldex all-wheel-drive system is also available. The vehicle's suspension delivers sporty handling characteristics, thanks to MacPherson struts up front and a multilink design at the rear. As befits the brand, many safety features are on hand and include a stiff structure and Volvo's Side Impact Protection System. A stylish center stack of controls highlights the vehicles' distinctively styled interior. Standard features include four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Emergency Brake Assistance, and front-side and side-curtain airbags. Updates for 2006 include standard steering-wheel audio controls, revised wheels, and improved cupholders.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
