What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2011 Volvo V50

2011 Volvo V50 Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Sedan turbocharged 113hp 1.6L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
Rear seat is slightly hampered by limited head/leg/sideways room, but for normal sized persons the seat is fantastic for two with splending leg and back support. Car is also very silent, making long drives a pleasure. see full Volvo V50 review
2010 4dr Wagon 168-horsepower 2.4L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Lots of front seat room. Good dash design accommodates tall passengers with rear facing car seat behind. Seat was vertically adjustable providing lots of hear room. see full Volvo V50 review
