I was alone waiting at a light. The two lane road I was on turns to a single lane about 1/4 mile ahead. I noticed a car coming from behind in the other lane so I readied myself because it would be a long slow journey if this guy was a slow driver.

As he was slowing down approaching the line, the light turned green.

Being at a dead stop put me at a disadvantage. He passed me up without much trouble off the line but I quickly caught him and was gaining. I'm not sure he realised that I wanted the front position until he noticed I was at his rear wheel gaining pretty fast.

He stomped on it so that put an damper to my gain for the moment.

As we reached about 60mph, i began to pull and passed him without much trouble. It really was neat to see the tC pull that hard at higher speed.

I figured with 168hp/170ftlb torque, he'd have my lunch.

The other, less favorable example we sampled was a base 2.4i automatic that featured a naturally aspirated 168-hp, 2.4-liter five mated to a five-speed Geartronic. Judged against the harelike T5, the 2.4i felt like a tortoise on Xanax. Volvo estimates 8.4 seconds for 0 to 60, more than two seconds slower than the T5 manual.
