Review
Quite surprised that a crossover like this is such an impressive performer. The T6 version especially has 320bhp from a 2.0-litre engine!

Not only that, but this crossover also drives very well. It handles like a sporty car, and it also has air suspension to adjust the height clearance. Very useful when going over bumps.

The interior is also very nice and clean, with a minimalist Scandinavian feel. Quite practical and spacious too.

What I like
Very impressive engine and performance
Cool features like adjustable air suspension
Looks sporty with R-Design kit

What I do not like
Big touchscreen can be a bit troublesome to operate

Review
My AWD ride came with panoramic sunroof, 19" Rims and leather key fob that matched the interior leather. I picked the amber interior and was pleasantly surprised that it matched very well with the pine grey exterior. I was a bit skeptical on the pine grey as i was shown the sample plate in the showroom but it turned out very nicely on the actual car. It was well received by everyone who saw it. The clean, modern exterior is complemented by the minimalist interior which provides more legroom than its predecessor (which I also owned). Oh, btw, did I mention Thor?

Safety features are top notch and its what we've come to expect from Volvo. Try out the lane keeping assist when test driving the car and you'll see what I mean. If you liked it, then thats just the tip of the iceberg. There is a slew of other features which have been reviewed to death in other articles all giving this car the thumbs up so i wont go thru those.

Ride is comfortable on seats which frankly, are the best when it comes to comfort in the industry. Where you're seated, it feels like you're wrapped in a protective yet comfortable enclosure with a clear view of your surroundings.

Controls are in the form of a Sensus touchscreen. There's absolutely ZERO learning curve for this. For anyone who has owned a tablet, you're all set from the word go. Interface is very easy to use and you'll especially like the map which fills up the entire screen giving you clear guidance. Voice recognition also works like a charm and surely Siri has found its match.

I also like how you can link a driver profile to each key fob. That way, the car is customized to the driver so there's no need to fiddle with the controls and settings if the previous driver was your spouse/partner.

So, in summary, if you're skeptical about all the reviews you've been reading about this car, stop reading them and go test drive this car. Only then will you know fact from fiction.

What I like
Safety features esp lane assist and pilot assist....cos we all know about City Safe already.
Ride comfort
External design
Thor's hammer headlights - absolutely the coolest headlights I've ever seen
Interior design
Sensus Interface - dont think there's any going back once you start to use it
Linking driver profile to key fob

What I do not like
Why must they auto enable the Start/Stop feature everytime you start the car? Cant it be disabled by default?
.....i guess that's the only thing i dislike about the car
