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

Review

The new Volvo XC70 is a significant improvement over the 2002 model. I know. I just bought a 2003 after my wife had been driving a 2002 model over the past 14 months. The new car has a more powerful 2.5 liter turbo engine. The extra power boost makes the Cross Country a very responsive car indeed. Added to that, a completely redesigned all-wheel-drive system makes the vehicle a joy to drive in Boston's very snowy winter. That, added to supreme comfort and proven safety, make this car a wonderful choice. Why buy a full size SUV when a station wagon meets all your needs? The fuel economy of the smaller vehicle is good to have too.

Best Features

Understated elegance in design, comfort, smart accelleration, safety. The mileage is totally satisfactory too. In pure highway driving at the speed limit (65 mph in MA) I get 26-27 mph.

Worst Features

More storage space around the driver's seat. Radio controls quirky.
