As a former owner having owned different makes of trucks I always found the Volvo the most appealing truck in the industry, especially on the inside!, The second generation Volvo's have an even better interior in my opinion, Moreover Volvo has always been a company that has put safety into their design first and without going to much into detail of the design, My understanding has it that the placement of the engine is of such that should a person get into a front end crash the engine will move downwards protecting the driver! There is quite an article and explanation on the Volvo website which explains this in more detail!
Volvo also has the most roomiest cab and ergonomic layout of the instrument panel, (Again this is my personal opinion!) The inside cab is relatively sound proof and the windshield being one piece helps with overall visibility. I choose the 630 for it's height, I did not want my truck to stick out higher than my trailer and I do not need the double bunk which the 670 is equipped with.  
This is the first time owning a Volvo VED 12 Lt. engine and I must say I am pleasantly surprised with it's performance so far, ofcourse I am not pulling 110,000 Lbs with a tridem trailer either and thus won't know how it would perform under those circumstances!  The meritor (freedom line) transmission is another first and I love it! being used to 13 and 18 speeds in my days when auto transmission were not developed then, I would spec it in my truck today if I  still owned trucks! the trannie shifts flawlessly and it is a pleasure driving! Someone asked me a while ago about backing up with this transmission to hook up the trailer, it indeed surges somewhat and what I do is put the transmission in high reverse which reduces the surging and makes for a soft pin up!
