It's a luxury sedan, far and away the nicest we've ever seen from Volvo.

The styling, like the performance, is a bit understated.

The car, in T5 trim, makes do with 250 horsepower -- not exactly a small amount, but not a lot for such a big car.

Step up to the T6 and you'll get a more appreciable 316 horsepower -- still a fair bit below many of this car's German rivals.

But that's not what this car is about. It's much more about creating a refined driving experience.

The car starts at $47,000, but you'll need to spend at least $53,000 if you want the higher-spec T6 engine.

And you'll probably want it. Fully spec'ed? You're looking at $67,000.

The car, of course, is riddled with safety technology, and the Sensus infotainment system in the car is among the best.

It is, quite simply, a marvelous car.
