The seats in a Volvo are designed by Volvo, those in a Ford are designed
by Ford. It's the stuff you can't see that is shared, not the stuff that
makes the brand like the seats, materials, etc.
The Ford 500 is much bigger and built on the s80 platform. But that
doesn't mean it drives or feels like the s80. Nor does it have the
advanced safety features of Volvo.
