Hi @all,<p>i am planning to buy a V50 T5. My almost last doubt is: How comfortable is this model compared to the 2.4 or 2.4i? Is there a big difference? Maybe some of you can help me with this issue. S40-experiences are also very welcome...<p>Take care<br>SteelyDan<p>

Not talking from experience but I think s40 and v50 are easy to compare. Apart from the exterior there's no difference in platform, wheelbase, engines or transmission or other important factors as far as I know. Perhaps the v50 will demonstrate a bit more body roll when turning sharp corners at higher speeds, but that's just an assumption.<p>Factors determining your desired level of comfort for a T5 will primarily be fwd vs awd and compared to a 2.4i the transmission choice will determine a great deal as well. Also, if you're looking for easy cruising 16" wheels are more comfortable then 17" or higher (17" and higher provide more feedback to the driver, thus making it a more bumpier ride - if those are in any way the correct words - when driving badly maintained roads). <p>My 2cts, but I'm just peeking in this forum.
