Number of doors
It seems to be quite obvious that the five-door Volvo V50 1.8 125HP manual is more usable and if you regularly carry more than one people then you should not have any doubts which one to choose. The strongest point of a five-door vehicle is that it’s not only easier for passengers to climb into the back but it’s also easier to put luggage and cargo into the vehicle when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the Ford Focus II Hatchback 3d 1.8 Duratec Flexifuel 125HP manual generally look much cooler and for those who rarely have passengers in the back seat the Ford Focus II Hatchback 3d may be a good one.
Model release date
Because of the fact that the Ford Focus II Hatchback 3d was introduced only 1 year prior to the Volvo, the gap between technology used in both cars shouldn’t be really big, however, the Volvo V50 might have slightly more advanced solutions applied in it.
