Hi guys

Given the current situation I have had to order a new car without sitting in it or driving it.

Has anyone got any experience of this car they could impart on me? I currently have an Audi 3.0Tdi that has a very slow pick up, for example joining roundabouts, is the T8 ok?

How is the ride with air? How long can you drive on electric? Basically any information good or bad would be appreciated.

Thanks

Ride is excellent, Volvo really do comfort well. Seats are superb, I've been selling cars for 16 years for various brands and the seats in the 60 and 90 series cars are by far the best. Haven't spent a huge amount of time behind the wheel but with the electric it does help pick up a bit quicker.

3 months in and 1800 miles so not exactly a vast experience...
I'm getting 20ish miles on pure electric which should improve as the weather gets warmer.
Currently showing 33mpg overall but if you do lots of short trips and charge regularly you'll see 50/60 easily.
Very comfy seats.
22" wheels look good but do crash into potholes. For more ride comfort I'd suggest 20".
Performance is circa 5 secs to 60 so not bad. I came from an Audi SQ5 Bi turbo diesel and the Volvo isn't as quick but the ride, tech and comfort is far better.
Inscription Pro has most of the toys.
B and W sound system is sublime but expensive.
Volvo Selekt has some good pre-registered and low mileage cars. I bought mine from Poole Volvo who were great and delivered to Norwich.

Good luck with the search...

Thanks guys that’s much appreciated, I have actually ordered it so I wanted to check I haven’t made a terrible mistake, car comes in September.

Have had Audis for several years, currently an A7 on 21 inch wheels and the ride is atrocious over poor roads (my fault for speccing those wheels, but they do look good!).

On the Volvo I have stuck with the standard 20” and have gone for a light colour scheme luminous sand with blonde interior. Getting fed up with Audi’s black interiors on the s- line models.

Someone said that Volvos get under your skin and once you’ve had one you keep going back. I have a Golf R and to be honest the A7 feels like a big version of it, looking for something more comfortable this time.
