The V50's Multimedia Package delivers enhanced listening pleasure via the Volvo Premium Sound System with Dolby Pro-Logic II Surround Sound, 650-watt amplifier and 12 speakers. Also included is the Volvo Navigation System with Real Time Traffic, remote control and Map Care. Bluetooth hands-free phone interface is standard on all V50 models. Sirius satellite radio with a complimentary six-month subscription, Keyless Drive and rear park assist are optional.

The V50 provides confidence-inspiring performance plus standard Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC). An extremely rigid platform affords levels of steering precision and suspension nimbleness found in the top vehicles in its class. Advanced braking, steering and chassis systems enable the V50 to feel secure in its capabilities across a broad spectrum of driving conditions.

With Automatic Hazard Warning, should any of the V50's airbags be deployed, the hazard lights will automatically be activated to attract the attention of other motorists. A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is standard and Volvo's ingenious Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) remains optional on both models. Active Bi-Xenon headlights that swivel the light beam in continuous synch with steering direction are also available.

Side impact protection is addressed by the use of extremely rigid cross members that form a 3-way attachment between the leading edge of the A-pillar and the base of the B-pillar. Similar cross members are found in the rear doors as well. This system of energy absorption, along with the slim-design five-cylinder engine is called Volvo's Intelligent Vehicle Architecture (VIVA), representing an innovative approach to vehicle safety design.
