One of the best turbo wagons out there
By Feh on


2006 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Very nicely styled, stands out from the average V70. Nice Pegasus 17" rims. Very good inline-5 turbo, twin-intercooled engine. Smooth 6-speed auto transmission. Adjustable continuously control chassis concept suspension is great: click, and you are in comfort mode, another click, and suspension fully tightens. Amazing! Excellent 4-piston Brembo brakes all around. Thick rimmed, sporty steering wheel. Leather-wrapper everywhere. One of the most comfortable seats I've had in a car. HU-850 unit is awesome, Nav unit is OK.

Best Features

Powerful engine. Powerful brakes. Awesome styling. Nice HIDs without the annoying cutoff.

Worst Features

Brakes are really touchy (on/off almost). Fog lights need improvement. Some interior panels need more robustness. Nordkap leather had some dye flaws. Intercooler pipe over the engine is weak, brackets breaks and rubs hood liner.
