Nothing exciting. A bit more boxy than my last Volvo. But it came with the nice AMG package which gave it led running lights, 20" wheels, and a nice chrome front and rear. I was also looking at the Volvo XC60 that I personally think is more attract
Very nice interior styling. Looks very expensive without being over-done. Seats are very comfortable. Lots of headroom which is typical in a German car and is comfortable for a tall person like myself.
My major reasons for buying the vehicle is it had to be AWD for the mountains and have the ability to tow a boat and haul items on the roof. This car does all that and more although inside space is limited. Built like a tank but drives like a sports car.
Rides like a large car and there are times I wonder if the engine is running it is so quiet.
A major disappointment. But, to be fair, I live at the top of a mountain in LA and all of my past cars also had bad mileage. It isn't bad on the highway...I get average of 22 mpg...but pure city driving drags it down to 16-17.
