We've been looking for a good-looking
SUVs but without the unnecessary bulk
of most major SUVs. We traded one of
our cars (AUDI A4 Quattro) for this new
XC70 Volvo. We also considered the
Lexus R330 and Volvo XC90. We found
these latter two SUVs to be too
tall/high for our "rescued" South
Russian Sheepdog to jump in and out of
the vehicle. We chose the XC70 because
he is able to recline comfortably while
in the car. The XC70's safety features
also made us choose it over the Lexus
R330. We would have chosen the XC90 but
besides the "height" situation, we also
found it a little "too feminine" looking
:) Although I've seen quite a few women
driving the XC70 here in the LA area.
SAFETY, EXTERIOR FINISH, COMFORT,
INTERIOR SPACE, AND IT'S REMARKABLE EASE
OF DRIVE DESPITE OF IT'S SIZE---I
actually prefer the driving quality on
our new Volvo XC70 over our AUDI A4 quattro.
FUEL ECONOMY, Automatic locking door,
ease of use of the entertainment/music
voice/warning assistance especially when
parallel parking-should be a standard
feature considering the length of this
Loved the comfort and ride of this
car. Went from Mercedes ML320 to this.
Improved gas mileage, comfort and
relability. The car handles great and
has great creature comforts. Went for
safety and proven track record and
longevity. I feel I will get it in
I love the comfortable seats, dash
layout and night time driveability.
One of the best cars I have ever owned.
Maybe locking doors once moving, CD
status in dash display and gas cap
holder like Mercedes.
Finally bought it.Always liked the
XC70.My Wife and son were in an MVA
recently in her Volvo S40 with an SUV
and the S40 held up amazingly.Any other
car in the S40 class would have yielded
far more severe injuries. Volvo's
safety is first class. We chose to
replace the S40 with another Volvo,
more family practical vehicle. As much
as I enjoy my SUV, SUV's cannot compete
with the XC70.Rides the way we all wish
SUV's should.Accelerates, brakes&
corners like many sedans.Feels as
comfortable as many luxury
vehicles.Great driving experience.And
knowing that my wife and son are in one
of the safest vehicles on the road, the
best feeling. No SUV rollovers.
Comfort, every safety feature volvo
incorporated into this vehicle, ground
clearance, AWD, auto windshield wipers
are cool, cargo space with wagon, look
in and out, geartronic, rear seat
vents, memory seats, color, 26 mpg,
bought demo model and got incredible
price with 5K mile.
Rear window release, door lock in cargo
area like my Ford Explorer, wish doors
auto locked at 5mph (surprised with
volvo emphasis on safety they don't
have it), better center console,
