If I was getting excellent gas mileage, there's a chance the trade-off could be worth it. So far, though, that hasn't been the case. Even though the EPA rated the QX50 at 24/30/26 mpg city/highway/combined, the fuel log shows I've averaged a disappointing 18.7 mpg.

Or spend part of that money on blind-spot monitoring, which unfortunately costs extra on the compact luxury entry from the brand known for safety. Although we wish that tech (called BLIS in Volvos) were standard across the line and not just on the R-Design and Inscription models, it's worth noting that a $36,795 S60 Momentum base model starts thousands below the Lexus IS, Alfa Romeo Giulia, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The interior gets matching black Alcantara and anodized aluminum accents. There's also a heated sport steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara trim that'll make your hands sweat just thinking about it.

A GTS Interior package is optional and gets fancy GTS logos, special stitching, and a choice of a tachometer in either Carmine Red or Chalk.
