Volvo V50 150

The Volvo V50 is a five-door estate or station wagon that was introduced in 2003 as part of the S40 small family-car series manufactured by Volvo Cars. The V50 SV concept car shown in Las Vegas in 2004 was based on the V50.

The Volvo V50 is built on a Ford C1 platform, a feature it shares with the Mazda 3 and the European version of Ford Focus. Among the salient features of the Volvo V50 are a floating center stack, interior “theatre” lighting, and “Volvo Intelligent Vehicle Architecture”.
