Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Amazing Car Handles great just feel's safe
by scalperin from Boston, MA | March 15, 2011
Overall I traded a volvo 2010 all-wheel drive in for this replacement. The s40 suffered an accident and i got the R-design V50 to replace it. Picks up better then the s40 handleing is ultra responsive and the xeonon headlights light up anything in sight. Trunk space is huge and option of a roof box or ski racks on top is a great option and backseat is very roomy even for adults. Stereo system is also amazing great sound quality and bass no need to get the uprgraded sound system avalible and the pick-up is extremley fast and I feel confident on all merges yields ect...I would highly reccomend this to anyone looking for a nice mid-size car option. Wagons are definatly back in style, volvo hit the bullseye on this one!
