'Twas a time Volvo's were known to be able to turn around *quite*
exceptionally.  Like 32' or so.  Their FWD setup has destroyed that

You think THAT is bad...  try "mall hopping" @ xmas time in a D2!  The
wheelbase and steering angle combine for 40'+++ circles.  That, it's
width, overhangs, and blindspots make it quite um "interesting" to
negotiate parking maneuvers.

Check out the turning radius on the Volvo S60R. A friend of mine has one

and he regrets buying it for this alone.  It's very annoying.  It's hard

to park in between two cars in a parking lot or ramp and forget about 
making a u-turn on anything less than a 6 lane divided road without 
using reverse. Even then it would be tight.  Even my battleship of a 
URS4 can u-turn at most intersections.
