2005 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

The V70R is the perfect AWD replacement for anyone who has enjoyed an 850 turbo. The accelleration (with automatic trans) is very similar but the ride is more compliant and the handling much improved (you would never know you are in a wagon when cornering). If you wish more accelleration, go with the 6-speed manual - you will find the accelleration of the automatic underwhelming (considering the car has 300HP)compared with the 6M. The '04 is my wife's car and I will be replacing my Volvo Cross Country with a V70R 6M this spring.

Favorite Features

The suspension is flat-out spectacular.

Suggested Improvements

More light exterior colors for those potential buyers who live in hot climates. Offer high-performance all- season tires in place of the Pirelli P- Zero's that come standard. Offer a stronger automatic so you don't have to reduce the torque (and HP in the first two gears).
