Unconventional wisdom,
beautifully applied.
Strange as it sounds, creating the V50 Sportswagon started
with some rather unexpected matchmaking. Unlikely couples
such as athletics and aesthetics, functionality and form and
subtlety and power were introduced and with more than a
little encouragement, these relationships blossomed into
something truly unique – a car that leads the way through the
beautiful application of unconventional wisdom.
It could be said that what you see before you is the result of
instincts being followed. Isn’t it time you did the same?

Monday is the new Friday.
Something happens when you climb into a Volvo V50 Sportswagon. An indefinable sharpening of thesenses. Almost like
you know that you’re about to experience something new
– something special.
With more than a hint of sport and a healthy dose of pure
fun, this car simply, stylishly and emphatically mirrors the
versatility of modern life – your life.
So as you pull away, what you’ve been feeling will suddenly
become clear. It’s Monday morning. But somehow, it feels
like the weekend is already here.

The joyous results of
one-track thinking.
There is only one seating position in a Volvo V50
Sportswagon – comfortable. In the same way, every item of
equipment has one common characteristic – intelligence. And
how did we achieve this? By only thinking of one thing when
we designed it – you. Isn’t it wonderful how such one-track
thinking can lead to such joyous results?

Space for pretty much
everything – except stereotypes
Remember a time when driving a wagon was something
many people did with reluctance? How the times have
changed. From tip to tail, this car is programmed to serve, built
to perform and designed to protect. Within the cabin, there is
space for laughter, music, fun and much more. In its choices
of paintwork and intuitive features you’ll find ample
opportunities to express your personality. The only thing we
haven’t left room for is outdated stereotypes – and just like
us, we’re sure you’d rather leave those behind.

Why hold when you can hug?
It’s hard not to smile when you’re experiencing the ride
in a V50 Sportswagon. Perhaps its irresistibility comes
from the fact it exhilarates as effectively as it accelerates?
What is beyond doubt is the fact that the application of
features such as Dynamic Stability and Traction Control
(DSTC), electro-hydraulic steering and a torsionally stiff
body unite adrenaline with safety. Not to mention a rather
thrilling fusion of performance and control. The result is
a better relationship between you, your car and the road.
Hardly a surprise, considering your V50 Sportswagon is
hugging it rather than holding it.

Designed to catch the light brilliantly,
this car also reflects a promise.
Thankfully, the automotive industry is moving away from fantasyland to the real
world. Our journey towards a better environment started already in the early 70’s.
Then we were among the first carmakers to acknowledge the environmental
downside of cars and to do something about it. Since then we are constantly
innovating to reduce the environmental impact of the cars and how we make them.
Today’s biggest challenge is, of course, to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions
that cause climate change.
In near future we will introduce new technology such as plug-in hybrid vehicles
that will further reduce CO 2 emissions and can be charged from a standard wall
socket. And we’re heavily engaged in the development of electrical vehicles – a
technology that will dramatically reduce the environmental footprint of our cars
and make them even more fun to drive.
Good for you, and for the world we share.

SAFETY
At the core of every car we make, state-of-the-art technology helps support
the driver and protect the occupants. And to further enhance the Volvo safety
experience, there’s a range of supplementary safety technology – for more
performance and peace of mind.
SAFETY Preventive
Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC)
By helping prevent fishtails, spinouts, and rollovers, stability control technology like
DSTC has been described as one of the most vital safety advances of the past decade.
DSTC is able to detect a potential skid and help counteract this by reducing the
engine’s power output, or braking on one or more wheels.
34
Adaptive brake light
Active at speeds above 30 mph, the adaptive brake light can sense the difference
between normal and panic braking. If it is a panic situation, all the brake lights will flash
at a rate of four times per second. Once your speed slows to below 19 mph, the lights
stop flashing and hazard lights flash instead. Using LED technology that needs less
time to light up than regular bulbs, traffic behind you can react sooner.
I

or
mat
i
onPr
ov

dedby
:
SAFETY Preventive
Dual Xenon Headlights with
Active Bending Lights (ABL)
In addition to improving
illumination using Dual Xenon light
technology, the Active Bending
Lights give a boost to your vision
round bends at night. Controlled
by microprocessors, the motorised
lamps turn up to 15 degrees in
either direction when driving
– reliably lighting up your chosen
path. A twilight sensor disengages
the adaptive function during
daylight to extend its life span.
Intelligent Driver Information System (IDIS)
To help avoid distractions during critical driving situations, IDIS constantly analyzes
your driving and will delay secondary information from the car or one of its onboard
systems when it detects intense steering, braking or acceleration. As soon as things
calm down, the phone call or the delayed information is presented.
SAFETY Protective
Restraint technologies
In a collision, Volvo’s restraint technologies
interact to help reduce the impact. The safety
belts with pre-tensioners activate within a few
thousandths of a second in the event of a collision
and tighten the belt to help keep the occupants
securely restrained. The front seat safety belts
then release a little so that the driver and
passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a
controlled manner. Helping to optimize protection,
the dual-stage airbags adapt the level of
inflation depending on the force of the collision.
The driver’s airbag also interacts with the
deformation of the collapsible steering column.
Side airbags in the front seats help reduce the
risk of serious injuries in a side collision. The
Inflatable Curtain (IC) helps protect the heads
of both front and rear outboard occupants.
It also stays inflated for some seconds to provide
prolonged protection for subsequent impacts.

:
SAFETY Protective
In a Volvo, safety is about interaction. Because it’s not the number of
safety features that determines how safe a car is. It’s how well they
seamlessly interact to help keep the occupants out of harm’s way.
In a rear impact the rear deformation
zones will help absorb crash energy. The
fuel tank is designed to remain well
protected in front of the rear axle. The head
restraints help protect the neck and spine,
and Volvo’s unique Whiplash Protection
System (WHIPS) cradles the front seat
occupants in a controlled manner to help
prevent whiplash injuries.
36
In a side impact Volvo’s unique Side
Impact Protection System (SIPS) helps
distribute the crash forces across the car’s
body, away from the occupants. The side
airbags in the front seats help protect the
chest and hip, while the Inflatable Curtain
(IC) adds head protection.
In a roll-over the robust safety cage and
the reinforced roof structure together with
the safety belts and belt pre-tensioners
will help protect the occupants. If the car
first has been hit from the side, the
Inflatable Curtain (IC) deploys to help
provide head protection.
In a frontal collision the patented frontal
structure will yield to help absorb and
disperse crash energy. The compact power
train is designed to help optimize
deformation. Inside the car, safety belts
interact with the collapsible steering
column and dual-stage airbags to help
keep the occupants out of harm’s way.

SAFETY Security
Energy-absorbing frontal structure
Volvo’s patented frontal structure is built with several types of steel to allow optimal
deformation – outer layers are more yielding, while steel closer to the cabin is more
resilient. This structure helps absorb the impact of a collision before it reaches the
occupants. The compact power train is designed to help optimize deformation. The
unique geometry of the frontal structure and longitudinal steel struts in the doors help
disperse crash energy away from the front to the rear of the car, further helping to
reduce the strain on the occupants. A steel strut under the dashboard helps prevent
components in the engine bay from intruding into the cabin. This also helps protect
legs and feet.
HomeLink®*
With buttons integrated in the
sun visor, HomeLink ® allows you
to operate remote controlled
home appliances – such as
garage door, home alarm and
exterior lighting – without leaving
the car.
HomeLink is a registered trademark
of Johnson Controls Technology
Company.
* Retailer installed accessory
Side Impact Protection System (SIPS)
SIPS is a Volvo unique safety system that has been developed to help protect where
occupants are most exposed to the crash forces. The steel framework of the car –
including the front seats – is designed and reinforced to help displace the impact of a
side-collision away from the occupants to other parts of the car body and help prevent
intrusion into the cabin. The side structure is extremely strong to help withstand a severe
side impact – even with a larger vehicle. The Inflatable Curtain (IC) for all the outboard
occupants and the front seat side airbags interact to help provide further protection.
Approach and Home Safe Lighting
Activated with the remote control, Approach Lighting provides a warm reception on a
dark night. This consists of interior and side lights – ground lighting too, if you choose it.
Home Safe Lighting is activated with the headlight stalk as you leave the car and it
provides a similar courtesy when exiting your car. This feature includes a dipped beam
from the headlight to accompany you to your door.
Whiplash Protection System
(WHIPS)
Integrated in the front seats,
Volvo’s WHIPS cradles the
occupant to help reduce the risk
of whiplash injury (one of the
most common types of traffic
injury and often the result of a
low-speed rear impact collision).
The function is activated by a
collision of sufficient force from
behind. Independent research
has shown that WHIPS is one of
the most effective systems in the
world and can reduce the risk of
long-term invalidity by 50%.
Power retractable door
mirrors with ground lighting*
At the touch of a button, these
door mirrors can be folded flat
against the car where they are
less likely to get damaged after
you’ve parked. They also fold or
unfold automatically every time
you lock or unlock the car. The
integrated ground lighting is
activated with the remote
control. Beyond enhancing
security to and from your car at
night, this is also convenient
when getting in and out.

BLIS is designed to help the driver keep a
lookout on either side of the car. As a vehicle
enters your blind spot, this function can alert
you with an indicator light built in to the front
door pillar – left or right. Together with the
door mirrors, BLIS helps you assess the
feasibility of a lane change. BLIS is activated
once the car exceeds 6 mph, and reacts to
almost any type of vehicle from a motorcycle
upwards, day or night.
Park assist*
Activated when you engage reverse gear, rear
park assist helps you when reversing into tight
spaces. The audio system is turned down and a
pulsating sound from the rear loudspeakers
becomes a continuous tone as you approach
an obstacle.
* Retailer installed Accessory
* Optional
Automatically dimmed inner
rear-view mirror
This is a mirror that automatically adjusts itself
to deflect the headlamp beams of the car
behind you. When there’s no light to dazzle
you, it automatically readjusts to its normal
setting. An integrated compass is included
with R- DESIGN.
Rain sensor*
Once activated, the rain sensor can start the
windscreen wipers as soon as it begins to
rain or if water splashes onto the windscreen.
For your convenience, it can also
automatically adapt the intermittent
windscreen-wiper function. Its sensitivity can
be adjusted via a ring on the wiper stalk.
* Included in the optional Climate Package
Keyless drive*
Keep the car key in your pocket or handbag. Using the keyless drive technology you
can unlock the doors and drive away without using the car key. To start the engine, just
turn the starter control in the instrument panel.

complimentary updates. Guides you anywhere with precise audio and visual directions.
Using the global positioning satellite system, a liquid crystal 6.5-inch display shows
your location on a map and plots the best route to your destination. Via TMC (Traffic
Message Channel) radio data broadcasts VNS also lets you know if there’s traffic or
weather-related trouble on route and recommends an alternative. Controls are
conveniently located on the steering wheel. When not in use, the screen retracts into
the dashboard. All map-based information is stored on DVD discs. Volvo’s Navigation
System includes Map Care which provides two map data updates at no charge.
* Included in the optional Multimedia Package
Integrated Bluetooth® handsfree system
Bluetooth® technology enables a mobile phone to be connected to the infotainment
system in your Volvo, wirelessly. Once configured for a mobile phone, the system
automatically recognizes your phone as you enter the car. And as you climb in and out of
the car, the system automatically allows you to switch freely from the phone to the
handsfree system and back again. With Volvo’s integrated Bluetooth® handsfree
system you conveniently operate your phone using the buttons in the steering wheel or
the center console keypad. Available as an accessory, there’s also a voice-controlled
Bluetooth® handsfree system that will listen to your command and make calls for you.

Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area. Also constant expansion and rebuilding of the
road network mean that the digital map database is not always the latest road information. Always
follow relevant regulations and road information.

PERFORMANCE
In a Volvo, power train and chassis interact to strike the perfect balance between
excitement and stability. And to further enhance the experience, additional
technologies are available.
PERFORMANCE Chassis
Five-speed Geartronic automatic
transmission
For the best of two worlds, there’s the
five-speed Geartronic – a responsive
automatic that’s ideal for relaxed driving,
tough conditions or towing. This also
allows manual gear shifting so you can
maintain a lower gear to bring up the
revs or for the added assistance of
engine braking. A special winter setting
makes it easier to move off and maintain
grip on slippery surfaces.
ENGINE
Five-cylinder in-line engine. Double overhead camshafts, 20 valves. Continuously
variable valve timing on both the intake and exhaust side. Electronic engine
management system. Three-way catalytic converter with heated oxygen sensor. It also
features light-pressure turbocharger and dual-charge air coolers (Intercoolers).
Volvo’s smooth-running five-cylinder engine is designed to respond at low rpm, so
there’s plenty of torque. This is made possible by continuously variable valve timing,
low internal friction and the electronic engine control system. This also helps to optimize
fuel consumption and reduce environmental impact – all engines comply with stringent
emission standards, such as California’s ULEV II.
Volvo V50 T5 (227 hp)
Engine type: 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged
Max. power output: 227 hp at 5000 rpm
Max. torque: 236 ft./lbs. at 1500–4800 rpm
Acceleration 0–60 mph: 7.1 sec
Top speed: 140 mph
Fuel consumption, mpg: city: 19
Fuel consumption, mpg: 27
Environmental classification: ULEV II
Transmission: Five-speed geartronic automatic
Fuel tank: 15 gallons

PERFORMANCE Specifications
DRIVELINE
Front wheel drive, transverse engine. The Geartronic transmission can also be shifted
manually so that you can maintain a lower gear to rev the engine or provide the added
assistance of engine braking. A special winter setting makes it easier to move off and
maintain grip on slippery surfaces.
STEERING
Power-assisted electro-hydraulic rack and pinion steering. Tilt and telescopic steering
wheel column. 2.9 turns lock to lock. Turning circle 34.9 ft. (depending on tires).
CHASSIS
Front suspension with spring struts (McPherson), anti-dive and anti-lift function.
Multilink independent rear suspension. Stabilizer bars front and rear. DSTC (Dynamic
Stability and Traction Control.
BRAKES
Power-assisted anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), ventilated discs front. EBA (Emergency
Brake Assistance). EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) between the front and rear
brakes. Diagonally split braking system.
The rigid body enables the suspension to perform optimally – for well balanced
handling and a high level of comfort. The front and rear suspensions also interact to
provide stable braking and smooth steering. The DSTC stability system assists if either
of the drive wheels begins to lose traction or if a skid is imminent.
Powerful anti-lock disc brakes help ensure a short stopping distance under all
circumstances and withstand tough use without fading. EBA helps you use your brakes
to the full in an emergency situation, while EBD distributes the braking effect between
the front and rear wheels in order to achieve optimal results according to the car’s load
and driving conditions.
Behind the wheel, you can enjoy responsive yet firm steering at all speeds. High
steering precision and balanced road feedback are easily enjoyed benefits.

Every moment in a Volvo is a moment designed to celebrate life.
A life full of twists and turns, ups and downs; the little things

isn’t just about you; caring for others is important as well.
For more than eighty years we have helped save lives on

improving automotive safety, we will never be satisfied.
And while we’re seeking new solutions, our existing safety
systems are preventing many accidents from happening and
providing some real protection when they do.
