There is a bunch to like about the
XC70. Great interior, comfort, safety,
fit & finish & so on. The one piece
that absolutely doesn't fit is the
engine. The 5 cylinder is noisy and
rough , simply inappropriate in a car
that typically stickers out around
$38K. Drop the drive train from my
Acura TL-S into the Volvo and you have
a home run. Why is Volvo married to
that #$% 5 banger?
Driver's position, transparent AWD,
great highway driver.
Besides the engine, rear seat leg room
and "normal" radio controls (throw in a
6 CD changer while you're at it....)
