The interior layout, fit and finish

The influence from LEVC’s owner, Geely, which also owns Volvo, is immediately apparent in the VN5. There’s the same portrait-oriented 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system, and the same gear lever and centre console buttons that you’ll find in most of Volvo’s road cars. 

The infotainment system runs  Volvo’s Sensus software, but a slimmed-down version that’s less graphically impressive but responds quickly to inputs. It’s still a shame that you need to dive into the touchscreen to change the temperature, but fans of minimalism will appreciate how few buttons there are inside the VN5. There are also two USB charging ports and a 12V charging socket in a central cubby between the two front seats, so you shouldn’t have any problem with charging your devices. Unlike its rivals, the VN5 has a fully digital instrument cluster that allows you to see all the most relevant information – including directions from the sat-nav – in one place.
