Edmunds' Expert Review

Though the 2007 Volvo XC70 wagon remains a viable alternative for those who need an all-weather vehicle but don't want an SUV, Subaru's more powerful and agile Outback undercuts it on price while offering greater all-terrain capability.

vehicle overview

Although Volvo has expanded its lineup in recent years, creating SUVs and hardtop convertibles to appeal to a more diverse customer base, the company built its reputation on station wagons. These wagons have come in many different varieties, but the Volvo XC70 is easily the most unique. Originally called the V70 Cross Country (XC), it debuted in 1998, as consumer interest in SUVs was booming. Lacking a sport-utility of its own, Volvo took a midsize V70 station wagon, raised the suspension, fitted it with all-wheel drive and gave it a more aggressive front fascia. The XC proved popular with buyers, and soon the Cross Country accounted for half of all V70 sales. When the V70 was redesigned for 2001, so was the Cross Country. Designers tried to make it into a more serious all-terrain vehicle, giving it an even taller ride height and equipping it with skid plates.

Renamed the XC70 in 2003, this rugged Volvo wagon has never really lived up to its all-terrain promise, but it is a very capable snow vehicle. Driving an XC70 is much like driving a regular V70 2.5T wagon, though the XC's extra 250 pounds of weight make it feel a bit slower and less agile. Inside, the 2007 Volvo XC70 has a utilitarian ambience tempered by fabulously comfortable front seats and an ergonomically sound control layout. The rear seat is also plush, but there isn't much legroom. Cargo capacity, on the other hand, is abundant for a wagon, making the XC70 well-suited for hauling mountain bikes and dogs.

There's no question that the 2007 Volvo XC70 looks the part of an all-weather station wagon, but given its lack of off-road skills, it has no advantage over the less expensive Volkswagen Passat 4Motion wagon, which offers more interior room, lots more power and sharper handling. For buyers who really do want an all-wheel-drive wagon with raised ground clearance, the Subaru Outback is a better bet, as it offers true off-road capability for less money, along with superior driving dynamics on pavement.

Trim levels & features

An all-wheel-drive midsize wagon, the 2007 Volvo XC70 comes in a single trim level. Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, skid plates, a roof rack, a power driver seat with memory settings, dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker CD stereo, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, and faux wood trim.

Notable options include a navigation system (packaged with satellite radio), a 325-watt Dolby ProLogic II audio system with an in-dash CD changer, a rear DVD entertainment system with dual screens, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, 17-inch wheels and an adaptive suspension. The Premium Package adds leather upholstery, real walnut trim and a sunroof, while the Climate Package provides seat heaters, rain-sensing wipers and headlight washers. There's also a Four-C suspension option that features adjustable shock absorbers.

2007 Highlights

The 2007 Volvo XC70 picks up a revised set of alloy wheels and exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals. Additionally, stability control and a tire-pressure monitor are now standard. A dual-screen rear entertainment system is a new option, and the optional bi-xenon headlights are now an adaptive design, better enabling drivers to see around turns on dark roads. The rear-facing third-row seat is no longer available.

Performance & mpg

Only one engine is offered on the XC70 wagon, and it's a 2.5-liter, turbocharged inline five-cylinder rated for 208 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels in varying degrees, depending on available traction. Under normal conditions, 95 percent of the engine's power is routed to the front wheels for the sake of fuel economy. The Volvo's EPA mileage ratings are 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Safety

The 2007 Volvo XC70 comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, anti-whiplash front head restraints and Volvo's OnCall telematics. Opting for the Convenience Package equips your XC70 with rear parking assist, integrated child-booster seats and power rear-door safety locks. In government crash tests, the XC70 earned a perfect five stars for its frontal- and side-impact protection.

Driving

With its soft, forgiving suspension, the XC70 provides a smooth, isolated ride on all surfaces. Sharp handling isn't in the XC's repertoire, but light steering and a relatively small size make for easy maneuvering. Buyers seeking a little extra agility should check off the Four-C adaptive suspension option. The fully automatic all-wheel-drive system assures surefootedness in inclement weather but the XC70 really isn't rugged enough for off-road adventures. On the move, the turbocharged engine is economical and reasonably smooth, with adequate power for most situations, but the automatic transmission is sometimes slow on the draw.

Interior

In standard trim, the XC70's cabin doesn't look or feel particularly luxurious, but leather upholstery is available for those who want a more upscale cabin. The front seats provide excellent comfort, but legroom in the second row is tight. Interior ergonomics are generally good, although a few oddly placed controls take some getting used to. With the rear seats folded down, the XC70 has 71.5 cubic feet of cargo room, slightly less capacity than most midsize SUVs provide but considerably more than most other wagons.

(Almost) Everything a Car Should Be
matt1122,02/13/2012
I have owned two of this generation of the Volvo XC70. I upgraded from a 2001 to a 2007 to gain electronic stability control, a more powerful and cleaner running engine, and the Haldex AWD. The only reliability problem I have had in the 11 years since my first XC70 was delivered was a bad transmission in the 01. It covered by warranty, and at no point was I unable to drive the vehicle - even once it became obvious the transmission was going (it simply became loud and clunky).
Glad I chose the XC70
first time owner,04/02/2009
After thinking about it for a long time, I narrowed down my choice of cars to the XC70, Honda Element and Outback. Drove all 3 back to back. Bought the 2007 XC70 with 30k miles for a great price, especially with a trade-in of my 16 year old Toyota 4-runner! I thought there was not comparison between the Volvo and the Outback....I know the Outback has a good reputation, but the XC70 has blown me away (imagine moving from a 1993 4-runner to a 2007 XC70). It is such a joy to drive, and although I can't compare it to other cars in its class, I think it handles and rides incredibly. It is so solid and quiet and the interior is like sitting in your favorite leather chair.
2007, The Best Year for XC70
Dave,05/21/2016
My current 2007 XC70 is my second; the first was 2004. All prior model year problems (e.g. transmission) seem to have been fixed on the 2005-2007 model years and '07 was the last year before Ford made Volvo cost reduce the vehicle and substitute the problematic Mitsubishi OEM T6 engine for Volvo's bulletproof 2.5T. I now have almost 180k miles on this car and my only significant unscheduled repair have been to replace the steering wheel position sensor "clock spring" at 148K, fuel rail pressure sensor at around 160K, and the front oxygen sensor at 170K. At this point (180K miles) I've recently replaced all front suspension bits including front struts, rear shocks, lower front control arms and ball joints and completed a tune up with new plugs and coil packs. Now, at 180K miles, the car starts, runs, and drives down the road as new Seats still look practically new. The chassis is tight and free of rattles. All in all, a very solid and well built vehicle - very comfortable, big storage in back, and tight if not razor sharp European style handling. I particularly admire the 2.5T engine. Torque peak at 1,900 rpm is right at 55mph where you need it for passing. Light boost turbo maintains power at altitude, yet runs nicely on US regular 87 octane gas - unlike Mercedes, Audi, etc. Good sound system, comfortable seats, intuitive controls, great visibility, sure handling, and higher ride height that makes for easier in/out for us older guys plus eliminates annoying scrapes in front while parking (and you don't plow snow with the front bumper unless it's well over six inches. My only niggle with this vehicle is road noise which can be an issue with most aggressive tread patterns. Pirelli's P7 AS plus and, just recently, Bridgestone's Turanza Serenity - both Tirerack's highly rated Grand Touring tires - are as quiet as they come with crisp handling and commendable grip in all conditions. However, I was disappointed in the durability of the Pirelli, the quieter of the two, so recently switched to the Bridgestones. I've considered a newer xc70, but found that about one in 25 of the 3.2 six motors experiences excessive oil burn, leading to ring & piston replacement (no cyl wall scoring) or total engine replacement. Volvo dealers might tell you that Volvo offers a 4yr/48K mile extended powertrain warranty if you buy a used unit from a dealer; otherwise, good luck. Another age related repair was to replace the upstream oxygen sensor at 170K and, subsequently, the catalytic converter. Finally, if you read the owner blogs Dealers are often referred to as "the Stealership". I've found them capable but very expensive. Could be worse if you have a Mercedes or Audi.

Should I lease or buy a 2007 Volvo XC70?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
