2008 Volvo XC70 3.2 4dr Wagon AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


We've had this car for just shy of two years and have always liked it much more than the auto mag reviewers. It fits our family's needs perfectly. It's my wife's daily driver and she appreciates the tank like solidity and the overall sense of quality it exudes. The front seats may be the most comfortable of any car out there, especially for long trips. We make many trips to the ski slopes a year and the AWD makes this Volvo unstoppable. The boxy interior configuration is very efficient, great for hauling all sorts of stuff. A great “does it all” vehicle. Not particularly sporty or fuel efficient but very luxurious. That’s why we’re getting another now that our lease is coming to an end.

Best Features

AWD, Solidity, Rational uncluttered controls, comfortable leather seats, overall vehicle size. You would have to go for a much more expensive Wagon, SUV or Crossover from Audi, BMW or Mercedes to get this level of quality. A good value.

Worst Features

Fuel economy. Quicker (T6 takes care of this complaint, not the fuel economy however). Would like to see the European Turbodiesel option here.
