2005 Volvo V70 2.5T 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Living in Istanbul with narrow street and lots of ups and downs I was a bit worried how this car would handle the city. But it did -even better than my previous V40. It's a joy to drive to work every day, but even more fun to drive around in the country side. It's audio (Dynaudio) is wonderfull, the power (2.0T) is more than enough to get the head start, needed once in a while and the comfort is unbeatable. What it lacks is a USB (or even AUX) connection. Thinking that one third of the price Renault's has both a MP3 playing CD player and a USB connection standart, this is something Volvo should be ashamed of. Still it's a beauty and a more good looking station wagon is hard to come by.

Best Features

Extra ordinary comfort, beauty of design, predictable and reassuring handling, top-class sound isolation, tons of cup holders, size.

Worst Features

Head rests in front could be adjustable, too few front pockets, should be able to play MP3's one way or the other, steering wheel should have an front-back adjustment, electrical system is a typical Volvo nightmare.
