After trading in my 1998 V70 T5 with 140,000 miles on the odometer, I bought a 2005 V70R. Performance and handling are simply phenomenal, allowing you to drive at speeds and under conditions normally reserved for high-end sportscars. Build quality is excellent and all controls, switches and gauges are logical and functional.
Performance, handling and comfortable interior.
This car needs a larger fuel tank ! Fuel consumption is obviously higher than the standard V70 and the small fuel tank requires frequent stops at a gas station.
