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


I bought the XC70 after extentsive research. Having other Volvo's I appreciate the new design: smaller exterior size but larger interior space. Rear leg room is fine as long as the 6-plus footers can compromise a little. Mileage has improved to 23 hywy at 73mph. Performance is great in the high rpm range: paddle shifting works great when passing. We drive to ski county each weekend and frequently encounter snow and slop which the XC handles effortlessly, but I see it could be easy to become overconfident. There is some jerky-ness when initially stepping on the accellerator. For what this car is intended to do, it does very, very well.

Best Features

AWD, styling: interior and exterior, auto-windshield wipers, cruise control system, seat fold-down options, a/c system

Worst Features

I'd love a couple more mph.
