There is no substitute

Vehicle2004 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
ReviewI wanted a performance wagon that had
to be "red". The only comparable
vehicle from my perspective is the Audi
S6 Avant. The "R" is a much better
value. The build quality
is "outstanding". The styling is a bit
understated, but there are some very
unique "R" touches that make it
standout. I considered Audi A6 Avant,
Audi Allroad, and VW Passat W8 wagons
but felt the V70R was the best in the
group based on performance, cargo
capacity, features, color, and overall
uniqueness (500 to be built).
There is no substitute... If you can
track down a V70R or a dealer with a
open allocation, I suggest you move
quickly because there are only 499
Best FeaturesPerformance features in general, but more specifically 300hp, electronically adjustable suspension/transmission, cargo capacity, "safety", fit and finish, unique "R" styling.
Worst FeaturesNo significant weaknesses, but a more sporting exhaust note, separate dual exhausts, dampened opening for the cup holder lid, smoother engine, 6 speed auto, key that inserts vertically. I'd also say build more but then I'd be loosing some of the exclusivity the car brings with it...
