Surprisingly Good
By John Callister on


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


It is even better than I expected. The interior is all of a piece, with those wonderful Volvo seats. The controls are similar to the last 2002 XC70 we had, rewarding the repeat customer. There is no flimsy dash mounted cupholder like the old XC70! The car seats 4 in absolute comfort. We had a way-back third seat in the old XC70, but not on this one, we almost never used it.

Best Features

Seats, transmission, instrument panel. The exterior looks of this car are remarkable. It looks great parked in the garage. Handles well, accelerates smoothly, much better than XC90 (my wife's decision factor).

Worst Features

Only single CD stereo standard, should be a 6-CD. Many cars on the lot seem to come overloaded with options (only the leather seats/moonroof option is needed). The cargo net/rack option seems to be very silly and overpriced.
