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


The new Volvo XC70 is a significant
improvement over the 2002 model. I know. I
just bought a 2003 after my wife had been
driving a 2002 model over the past 14

The new car has a more powerful 2.5 liter
turbo engine. The extra power boost makes
the Cross Country a very responsive car
indeed. Added to that, a completely
redesigned all-wheel-drive system makes
the vehicle a joy to drive in Boston's very
snowy winter. That, added to supreme
comfort and proven safety, make this car a
wonderful choice.

Why buy a full size SUV when a station
wagon meets all your needs? The fuel
economy of the smaller vehicle is good to
have too.

Best Features

Understated elegance in design, comfort, smart accelleration, safety. The mileage is totally satisfactory too. In pure highway driving at the speed limit (65 mph in MA) I get 26-27 mph.

Worst Features

More storage space around the driver's seat. Radio controls quirky.
