2011 Volvo V50 T5 R-Design

Whether it's transporting a load of weekend warrior gear to a soccer game or toting a bulky home entertainment center from a big box store, the Volvo V50 relishes the challenge to provide express delivery service. Standard turbocharged performance puts the "sport" in sportswagon for 2011 for the dynamic duo of the V50 T5 and the even sportier V50 T5 R-Design. (continued below)

Both V50 models deliver the goods with a standard 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine that develops 227 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. This superlative powerplant also is remarkably efficient with fuel economy estimates of 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. A five-speed "Geartronic" automatic transmission with "Auto-Stick" function is standard on all V50s for the 2011 model year.

The V50's extensive list of standard features includes 17-inch "Spartacus" alloy wheels, front fog lights, a power driver seat with memory, auto-dimming rear view mirror, air conditioning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and aluminum inlays. A high performance sound system is also standard with CD player, HD Radio technology, AUX and USB inputs, 160-watt amplifier and eight speakers.

Among the roster of standard features for the V50 T5 R-Design is a unique grille with matte silver surround and R-Design logo, a sport body kit with color-coordinated side skirts and front and rear spoilers, premium leather/flextech seating surfaces with embossed R-Design logo, aluminum sport pedals, sport gearshift knob, R-Design inlays, watch dial instrument cluster and sport steering wheel. The R-Design also is fitted with dynamic sport suspension, a power glass moonroof and power front passenger seat.

The V50's versatile interior offers more than 62 cubic feet of cargo space. Long items can be conveniently carried inside the cabin thanks to the 60/40 split-folding rear seat and a front passenger seat that folds flat. Dual integrated child booster seats are optional on both V50 models.

A Preferred Package, available on the V50 T5, includes a power glass moonroof and power front passenger seat plus leather seating surfaces and a leather gearshift knob. The Climate Package, available on both models, offers the added convenience of Electronic Climate Control (ECC), heated front seats, headlight washers and rainsensor windshield wipers.
