We bought an S60 T6 AWD when the T5 was only FWD. The S60 is a tough car to compare against an Altima or Legacy even though the T5 now has AWD available.
A T5 AWD with nav MSRP's for $41.5. My 3.6R with nav and somewhat comparable features MSRP $33. Of course Volvo throws in City Safety and a 5yr warranty and maintanance. That's a big diff in costs.
We do love our T6. It's plenty fast, gets good MPG's and very very safe.
