However, the interior is tight; tall drivers might find themselves surprisingly short on space, as the sunroof cuts precious headroom. The rear seats—configured more as two separate contoured positions with scaled-down proportions—are snug, and adults will complain even if they can wedge in. The cargo space is a bit disappointing, too, with a narrow opening through the glass hatch—and a high cargo floor that doesn't make much of it usable if you want rearward visibility. Such is the sacrifice for the fashionably low packaging.
Ride comfort isn't so great either. The underlying firmness of the suspension results in jarring jolts over potholes and some boominess on coarse surfaces—exposing that noise insulation isn't quite up to the standard of Volvo's other vehicles.
