V70 Just Arriving from Europe
By Randall S Over, P.E. on
2008 Volvo V70 3.2 4dr Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
Picked up the car in Gothenburg, Sweden and drove 1800 miles through Europe. Very easy to handle, beautiful interior, typical great seats and well laid out dash, switches, gauges, etc. Evolutionary update to the design of my S60. If anyone is thinking of the European delivery program, do it, well worth it even with the current value of the US dollar vs the Euro and SEK.
Roominess, interior and exterior looks and ease of parking and steering given the size. Very comfortable and easy to drive.
Smaller engine with turbo, better mileage. However, we got between 24-25 miles/gallon going well, fast on the highways in Europe, with 4 people and gear. I expect similar mileage here in the states.
