2003 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

It was down to the XC90 or 70 and I chose to save roughly 11G's and gain fuel mileage to boot. Nimble enough for city driving (NYC) though would have appreciated more power assist. Have S80, 850 T5, 960 and 740 in the extended family and feel that this is the most versatile Volvo yet. Slight harshness under acceleration but can get used to it.

Favorite Features

Plenty of SPACE! Fun to drive. AWD. SAFE for everyone and a real solid feeling driving experience.

Suggested Improvements

Wind noise even with aero cross bars for roof rack. Useless grocery bag holder. More rear seat room. Slightly more power steering boost would be welcome. And bring back the small turning radius!
