2003 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


It was down to the XC90 or 70 and I
chose to save roughly 11G's and gain
fuel mileage to boot. Nimble enough
for city driving (NYC) though would
have appreciated more power assist.
Have S80, 850 T5, 960 and 740 in the
extended family and feel that this is
the most versatile Volvo yet. Slight
harshness under acceleration but can
get used to it.

Best Features

Plenty of SPACE! Fun to drive. AWD. SAFE for everyone and a real solid feeling driving experience.

Worst Features

Wind noise even with aero cross bars for roof rack. Useless grocery bag holder. More rear seat room. Slightly more power steering boost would be welcome. And bring back the small turning radius!
