    An amalgamation of the best of previous cars - an Audi A4 S-line Avant and Lexus IS. Smooth as the Lexus with interior to match. A typical Volvo light interior which really lifts the car and is a pleasure to sit in. It's more practical and has a bigger boot bigger than Audi. Agreed, the auto box can be hesitant but adjust your driving style and it's not a deal breaker. A keeper.

    If you want a big, luxurious estate, you certainly don't need one of the Germans. The interior is a match for any of them and has a typical minimalist Scandinavian feel. The seats are super comfy and easily adjustable and the infotainment system is comprehensive and simple to use. Air con is as good as any other executive car. Safety is probably best in class. I could go on extolling the virtues of this car but, if you are in the market for a large executive estate, do take a test drive before making a decision.
    Reliability

    4 out of 5

    The only problem I have had so far is the near side windscreen washers failed.The jets are in the wiper arms and appeared blocked. My dealer fixed this but the problem soon returned. I haven't had time to get this fixed.
    Performance

    5 out of 5

    For a two-tonne car, the performance is excellent. In Dynamic mode, 60mph is achieved in under seven seconds and acceleration is enough to keep up with most, particularly when joining a motorway.
    Running Cost
    So far I've only needed diesel and washer fluid so running costs are relatively low.
