Our reviews give you two perspectives. Jakub takes the perspective of the car enthusiast, while Yuri represents the interests of the general consumer. You won't find details about engine compression ratios here, instead you'll have real world opinions on what it's like to drive and own cars.

      Probably an awesome car to drive. The interior is clean and luxurious, but the exterior is not exactly eye candy.

      Nice job, guys. They do a really great review of the Evoque as well. Great points that even the Edmunds reviewers don't think of.

      I work for Volvo- here's some important things they missed.
      1. Climate control works through the Voice Control button on the steering wheel~ "Set climate 72" - "Lower Fan Speed" - "Seat Heat On" - "Auto Fan 1" - Reaching for any climate system while driving is dangerous- voice control is safer and easier.
      2. The Driving Mode selector screen will disappear when you press the home button under the touch screen.
      3. Lane Keeping Aide works full time as long as it's enabled in the Vehicle Functions screen- at speeds over 40MPH. LKA Does not keep you centered, it keeps you inside the line as you begin to cross the line. As you cross over a line by 2-4CM, it steers you gently back inside the lane. This generally prevents heavy ping-ponging between lanes. Pilot Assist is separate in it's functionality as it uses both lines to keep you centered in the lane and take light turns- as with adaptive cruise control, tapping the brakes or making a hard turn on the steering wheel will disable Pilot Assist. If there are no drive lines on the road- yet Pilot Assist is active- Lane Keeping Aide and Run-Off-Road Mitigation are both still active in trying to keep you on the road.
      4. Those are the stock Inscription trim wheels- on an R-Design. I have never seen that anywhere else.

      Great review! My customers definitely are not shopping in a price segment- if they are looking at this vehicle- they are looking at Audi Q5's, BMW X3/X5's, Infinity QX50'ss, Lexus RX350's and so forth. Volvo usually ends up giving you more standard equipment and better tech than the others for less money- on a car that promises you won't die in it.

      @markopolo619 Absolutely! If I could afford a new one I would- but the reliability is better than ever, software glitches happen to a small few of people but mechanically they have been fantastic.

      Looks-wise, it doesn't hold a candle to the V90 R-Design. Not even close. But as far as SUVs go, it's sharp.

      I pick a price point, and then find the best vehicle for the money. So, I agree that happens.
