Let's hope nobody passes through three age bands between ordering and taking delivery!

Had to chuckle. The XC60 is hardly a chick magnet. At age 21 I did not want to attract the matronly types who wanted safety and practicality.

Try using it to tow a horsebox to events, then you would wish you were 21 again

Your impression of Volvo may hold true 'down under', they have moved on a lot in Blighty.

Not that much, brand images take a long time to change. Ask a 18 year old if he wants a Zetes Focus or a Volvo and - can you guess?

I had a ski boat at age 21 and used to tow it with my VW Beetle. My recollection is that there was plenty of room in the back seat for fun activities.

Nothing much has changed here regarding attitudes. I have a 21 yo daughter who pleaded with us to buy anything but a Volvo. However, her attitude changed a bit after seeing the Twilight movies, but not as far as actually wanting one.

It seems like I am counting to the youngsters here ;-)

Bought xc60 with 31 and also had v50 with 28 ;-)

And still compared to my all other cars (Renault Megane Sport, Peugeot 407 coupe, Mazda CX7) Volvo beats them all ;-)
