VOLVO V50 review

NGC verdict 19.12.2008

Nobody prescribed that eco-driving had to be a painful experience as Ford-owned Swedish carmaker Volvo is prepared to demonstrate in its outstanding new diesel estate car - Iain Robertson investigates.

Although many consumers will feel that car buying incentives are as welcome as a nasty rash at the moment, with the turn of the year upon us and the lure of a new car for the New Year, Volvo has something up its festive sleeve to cut exhaust emissions and reduce the inevitability of high VED. Of course, placing Volvo alongside low-CO2 may not be as hard to imagine as you might think. After all, the Swedes have always kept an eye open towards protecting their largely green and lovely countryside, even though it may only be for around six months of the year (the rest of the time it is 'white').
