My Volvo to me is design and quality... If I'm not on the bike I love being in my C70

Oh I don't question that Volvo is quality.   And certainly renown for safety.  But sportiness,power or handling?

This Volvo is completely different from what you mention http://www.nextpolestar.com/#/specifications
I personally own a simpler version, a 2011 V60 2.0T with Polestar tuning and Powershift gearbox. No shortness in power and the handling is super!  :169:

Plenty of cages running on 3 cylinders already,
e.g. my Daughters new Ford Fiesta, and the new Peugeot 208,
( not to mention my old Austin Allegro !  :745: )
