Re: Top Gear Review of V50 T5 (Dills)

"Obviously that is why we make the V70!!! "

Exactly - I also question their claim that their hideous test furniture would fit in an A4 Avant or 325xi - I compared the V50 with the Avant when I was shopping, and if there's a difference in cargo room, it's a matter of one or two inches. I just walked by a 3 series wagon parked in front of my house, and it also has about the same cargo room as the V50.

They failed to point out that the V50 is also unable to handle 15 tons of gravel, making (using their criteria) a dump truck a superior vehicle.

I love top gear, very entertaining.

It's funny how people get so defensive about their cars when they are reviewed.

You should see the responses you get when you put up the review of the corvette on a racing (solo1 solo2 and drag) forum.

So okay, the Jag looks decent and hauls more. But it isn't the same price as they suggest. Even if you add T5 and AWD to the V50 it's still over $6000 less expensive. Plus, in my opinion, the Volvo's design just looks fresher. The nice thing about the Jag is it's going to be $15k used in 8 months.
