2005 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


This much fun ought to be illegal. The V70R is the perfect stealth wagon. Who would expect 0-60 in the mid-5s from a station wagon? With the available aftermarket items (exhaust, sway bars, and engine computer kits), getting 350+ HP is very do-able from only 2.5 liters. The 6-speed manual and brembo brakes make this a pleasure to drive. With 04 and 05 models coming within pricing reach, now is the time to think swede.

Best Features

Premium sound (11 speakers) with 6 disk changer, in-dash navigation, backup warning system.

Worst Features

Turning radius beats a Greyhound bus, but not by much!
