QUOTE(Gillian @ Jul 20 2004, 07:20 AM)Is V50 based on a Ford platform?
I don't know. Ford owns Volvo, and the all new S40 is on the same platform as the Ford Focus/Mazda3, but I don't know about the V50 wagon. Is it the same wheelbase as the sedan? I can't imagine that extra money would be developed for a whole new platform just for this wagon.
I am not a Volvo owner yet, but I am eyeing the new S40 and the V50. I will do some more research and see what I can find out.
