The new V60 is very nice, the older one isn't very big.

The only problem with the latest Volvos is that they are murderously expensive. As I understand it, their reliability track record isn't really a thing yet as they are pretty new and now millions of them around. Happy to be told this is different now though.

Both of ours are workhorses. Looked after by a specialist, classy, quiet and very very comfortable. Won't be buying anything else come replacement time. Definitely a Volvo family now. The V90 is a lovely car, I will be searching one of these out in future.

I had a 62 reg. It was very nice with a lovely interior and sunroof. I used to get my full golf kit in including powered trolley but it's quite compact compared to some. Lovely interior though I bought it as a pre reg. The depreciation was bad for me even though I bought as a pre reg. It surprised me how little it was worth when I sold it. It wasn't a brand that I expected to depreciate so badly. I'd have another at the right price though
