The next day, roads plowed, the weather clear, we got ready to take it for a spin. My daughter ran her hand over the seats and the fabric on the doors, the two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel, in soft black and cream. "It's so … aesthetic!" she said. The materials are high-quality, the look is clean but not stark. Quite a departure from the awful interiors Volvo put out when it was owned by Ford, before Chinese automaker Geely bought it in 2010.
