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?
Volvo. for life
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?
When was the last time
you felt music?
There is one sure way to transform a journey into an event
– add some good music. If you can do this through a system
that leads the way in audio excellence, all the better.
Volvo’s Dynaudio Premium Sound system* delivers a seriously
moving aural experience. It features a new digital class D
amplifier, 12 loudspeakers from renowned Danish sound
specialist Dynaudio, Dolby® Pro Logic® II surround sound and
is fully compatible with your iPod® or MP3 player. We could
say more but in this case, we’ll let the music do the talking.
*Optional on T5 AWD
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.
When your day changes fast, make sure you keep up.
With its extra wide tailgate and numerous seating configurations, the Volvo V50 Sportswagon accommodates cargo, friends and any combination of the two
with consummate ease. Thanks to smart design and ergonomics with a human touch, your luggage is always carried securely without compromising rear
seat passenger safety and comfort. Just load up and let everyone enjoy the ride.
Intelligent engine design
starts with ditching the
rear view mirror.
The engines available in the Volvo V50, whether your choice
is the naturally aspirated 2.4i or the turbo-charged T5, offer
the security of instant response and make efficient use of
every drop of fuel, thanks to low-friction engine technology
and modern management systems. Both are the product of
forward-thinking design, concern for the world around us and
embody our commitment to deliver power with consideration.
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.
Peace of mind, 24–7.
Starting with theft-protected door locks and an electronic
immobilizer, this car is a thief’s worst nightmare.
When approaching the car at night, you can light up the
interior and the car’s immediate surroundings at the touch of
a button and with optional keyless drive*, just step into your
Volvo and drive away without removing the key from your
pocket. Looking for peace of mind? You’ll find it here.
*Included in the optional Preferred Package
For decades, we’ve created cars that encourage people to enjoy life and help protect it in the event of an
accident. Many of the most important car safety innovations are the hallmark of Volvo, and hundreds of
thousands of people all over the world can say they’re still alive thanks to Volvo ingenuity.
This is not by coincidence. Our founders stated that safety is, and shall always be, at the heart of what we do.
As a result, Volvo is recognized the world over for our passion and dedication to provide the safest cars on
the road.
The protective character of Volvo also encompasses the world we share. Already in 1972, Volvo was the
first car manufacturer to acknowledge and actively respond to the environmental impact of cars. In fact,
we invented the three-way catalytic converter, and are constantly innovating to reduce the environmental
impact of the cars we make and how we make them.
Of course, choosing a Volvo will always be something you do for both yourself and the people around you
– because our cars will always consider the well-being of everyone. Even if those people happen to be
outside your car or are part of future generations.

“Cars are driven by people. Therefore, the guiding principle
behind everything we make at Volvo is – and must remain
– safety.”
Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson, founders of Volvo
In 2008, Volvo Cars introduced the new XC60 with City Safety – the world’s first standard-fitted
collision avoidance and mitigation technology active at speeds up to 19 mph. Helping to lower the
risk of low-speed collisions and whiplash injury, City Safety is a major step towards safer urban driving.
At the moment, City Safety is only available in the Volvo XC60.
In 1976, Volvo Cars was the first car manufacturer to introduce the three-way catalytic converter with
an oxygen sensor for exhaust emission control. Today virtually all gasoline-powered cars are equipped
with this ingenious component – just as indispensable for the environment as the three-point seat belt
is for safety.
In 1959, Nils Bohlin, a Volvo safety engineer, invented the three-point safety belt. So important is this
invention, it is considered to be one of the most life-saving technical innovations in the history of mankind.
Cars are driven by people. That’s why all our safety research and development continues to investigate the
capabilities, limitations and tendencies of human nature. This people-centric research is always based on
real situations – and with the vision to create cars that do not crash.
To help you avoid accidents while maintaining the fun of driving, Volvo safety technologies are designed to
support the driver in various situations without unnecessary interference. All these intelligent technologies
share information and interact with split-second precision. Today, a new Volvo can “read” actual situations
and provide optimal support and protection for example, by sensing normal driving patterns or panic
situations and by taking protective action before, during and after a collision. Still, technology can never
take the responsibility away from you, the driver. Final decisions are always in your hands. But if these
technologies help make you more alert and relaxed, they will also contribute to the overall safety of those
in and around your Volvo.

Since 1970, Volvo’s Accident Research Team has investigated accidents involving Volvo cars on Swedish
roads. Today, our own statistical database contains over 36,000 accidents with more than 60,000
occupants. In addition to studies on the scene of the accident, our researchers also investigate what
happened before the crash to understand how to improve the driver’s conditions to avoid a collision.
These findings give us unique knowledge that guides us in creating technology that helps prevent or
mitigate accidents and – if an accident can’t be avoided – to help protect the occupants.
Based on the findings from our accident research, we can recreate a variety of real-life traffic situations
and crashes. Beyond numerous virtual crash tests in super-computers, we perform around 400 crash
tests each year. We crash test car-to-car at different speeds and from different angles. We perform frontal
impacts, rear impacts, side impacts and roll-over tests and test cars off-road as well as against genuine
Swedish granite rock-face – we can even simulate impacts with wild animals.
Other car manufacturers come to Sweden for final car testing under harsh and capricious conditions.
For us it’s home. Our own proving ground Hällered with its 34 miles of test tracks includes different road
types from all over the world. Here we scrutinize our cars’ ability to support their drivers in all imaginable
and unimaginable situations during thousands of test miles – not to mention the distances driven on
ordinary Swedish roads.
We already know what we want to achieve: no accidents. By applying a holistic approach which considers
the driver and the vehicle as well as the infrastructure, we can realize a future where cars interact with
other cars, the road and the traffic-control systems. For example, this includes cars that can brake and
steer automatically, if needed. This makes it possible to design cars in completely new ways to protect
and preserve life.
Looking after people and the environment is an indispensable part of the Volvo soul. For more than 80 years
we’ve been driven by a passion for safety. We are environmental pioneers in the car industry, and have always
employed a healthy respect for our limited resources and environmental responsibilities. Consequently, we aim
to create new solutions that help halt climate change and improve the environment – both inside and outside
the car. Our goal is crystal clear: to build cars that leave a minimal impact on the environment. We don’t
think that there is just one way to tackle the environmental issues. We think there are many solutions and
we must explore all the options. That’s why we’re developing new eco-technologies. DRIVe captures all
our environmental work – from production to recycling – and represents our commitment and
continued efforts for sustainable mobility.
,.3(.We must minimize the emissions of fossil CO2 (which leads to climate change) and increase the energy
efficiency of our cars. Continuous improvements within aerodynamics, rolling resistance, lightweight
materials and drive train technology help us lower fuel consumption. In our new Hybrid technology
center in Göteborg, we are developing the next generation power trains for future Volvos.
If you drive 10 000 miles a year, you spend at least 24 hours a month in your car. We also know that more
and more people are suffering from asthma and allergies. To ensure a healthy interior for you and your
passengers, we test upholsteries and interiors in the Volvo Environmental Laboratory in Sweden.
All upholstery materials and interior textiles also comply with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 – an international
benchmark for human ecological safety of textiles. All leathers are chromium-free – they’re tanned
using vegetable or synthetic substances instead of chromium. What’s more, some panel trims are Forest
Stewardship Council (FSC) certified to ensure the wood comes from responsibly managed forests.
Already from the early stages of conception we’ve considered our cars’ environmental impact: from design
and manufacturing to useful life and recycling. For example, we’ve seen to that our factories are powered
by wind and hydro power and use energy and water responsibly. Our production facilities are certified
under the global environmental standard ISO 14001, and we make sure that all our major suppliers
meet our strict environmental standards. At the end of its useful life, every Volvo is designed to be 85%
recyclable. We also offer re-manufactured exchange parts which substantially reduces the need for
raw materials and energy.
To reduce energy-loss from wind and roll resistance, we
utilize advanced aerodynamic design, light-weight materials
and low-friction technology. Together with state-of-the-art
engine technology, this lowers your CO2 emissions and helps
you travel further on fuel.
We are committed to creating cars that contribute to a better
life – be it inside or outside the vehicle. Utilizing advanced
technology, your Volvo is designed to use fuel efficiently and
reduce its impact on the environment. This caring attitude
continues inside your Volvo. Here you and your passengers
can experience one of the automotive industry’s cleanest
and healthiest cabin environments. It’s as enjoyable as it’s
responsible. Just as you would expect of a Volvo.
To help minimize its total environmental impact,
every Volvo is designed to facilitate recovery and
recycling at the end of its useful life.
All our upholsteries and interior textiles are tested for certain
allergy-inducing or harmful substances and comply with
Oeko-Tex Standard 100. And several interior metal details
are tested with regard to contact allergies. Good for you,
and for anyone who shares your ride.
Continuously monitoring incoming air and shutting out
carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide,
Volvo’s Interior Air Quality System* helps ensure that the
air you breathe in the car is cleaner than that outside when
driving in heavy city traffic.

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
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.
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.
SAFETY Preventive
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.
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.
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.
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%.
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.
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.

system. In the tunnel console between the seats,
integrated cupholders are hidden under an
elegant roll-top cover.
Electronic Climate Control (ECC)
ECC ensures you and your passengers always enjoy a pleasant in-car climate. It maintains the set
temperature inside the car however much the temperature outside changes, or the sun shines in. The
driver and front-seat passenger can set the temperature individually for each side.
Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)*
Volvo’s IAQS continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air
vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide. Meanwhile, an active
carbon filter protects the occupants from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. This helps to
ensure that the air you breathe in the car is cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic
and tunnels.

A world champion in versatility, Volvo has a proud heritage in providing smart solutions for
both cargo and passengers – without compromising safety comfort. So whatever you need to
expand your world and the capabilities of your Volvo, here you’ll find some practical equipment
to make it happen.
PACK & LOAD Compartment
Two-split 60/40 rear seat
Ergonomically designed
rear seats provide generous
support for the body during
long journeys. When a journey
includes both cargo and
passengers, just fold down
part or all of the two-split
rear seat.
Foldable front seat
To help you carry long objects
inside your Volvo, the front
passenger seat backrest can
be conveniently folded flat.
Cargo compartment
The wide tailgate opening facilitates loading and unloading. The cargo volume is 62.6 cu.ft. with the rear
seats folded down. Additional load space can be gained by folding the front passenger seatback forward.
Safety grille*
Made out of steel, this helps protect the
occupants from unsecured cargo during hard
braking. When it’s not needed, just raise it
parallel to the roof panel. Color-coordinated
with the interior.
Cargo compartment divider*
Used together with the steel safety grille, this
divides the cargo compartment into two sections
– convenient if you want to carry your dog and
luggage, or to separate dirty or fragile cargo
from other cargo.

make the load carriers easy to fit, and even quicker if your car has roof rails. Various load accessories
– such as roof boxes and different holders for bikes, skis, surfboards and kayaks – can be attached to
the cargo carriers to meet your needs. These accessories can be freely combined for flexibility and many
are aerodynamically designed to help reduce fuel consumption and wind noise. And most of them can be

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.
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.
* Optional on T5 AWD
T5 All-wheel drive
The advanced Haldex® AWD technology helps increase driving stability and traction on all road surfaces.
It has an electronic management system that constantly monitors the speed of the wheels, the throttle,
engine torque, engine speed and the brakes. As driving conditions change, wheels with the best grip get
the most power. When a tire loses traction, power is reduced to that wheel and instantly transferred to
the more sure-footed wheels.
Five-cylinder in-line engine. Double overhead camshafts, 20
valves. Continuously variable valve timing on the intake side (2.4i)
or both the intake and exhaust side (T5). Electronic engine
management system. Three-way catalytic converter with heated
oxygen sensor. T5 also features light-pressure turbocharger and
dual-charge air coolers
Volvo’s smooth-running five-cylinder engines are 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. And for even more exhilaration and acceleration, there’s
the turbocharged T5 engine.

Turning circle 34.9 ft. (depending on tires).
The Geartronic transmission (standard 2.4i, option T5 AWD) 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.
Behind the wheel, you can enjoy responsive yet firm steering at all
speeds. High steering precision and balanced road feedback are
easily enjoyed benefits.
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.
The T5 AWD includes a Dynamic Sports Suspension.
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.
