30+ on the highway makes this a real touring car. City mileage plummets but typically get 27+ combined. The Turbo gives it lots of acceleration when needed and frugal when you leave the turbo alone. see full Volvo V50 review

Keeping those five cyclinders fed burns fuel. On the highway, that's not a problem, but in stop and go traffic, MPG numbers go down and down. see full Volvo V50 review
