The XC70 is a great all purpose vehicle. It is fast and nimble on dry surfaces and has great traction in poor weather. It seats four *very* comfortably. The rear storage space is ample. In short, if you want a vehicle that can do everything fairly well this is the car for you.
Amazingly comfortable seats. A joy to drive once it gets going - nimble on twisty roads but very stable on the highway.
Needs better acceleration from 0-10mph. Needs better gas mileage, particularly in the city. Upgrade the optional jump seats to support car seats.
