2009 Volvo XC70 T6 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


We bought the XC70 T6 to replace a Passat wagon that was totalled in a car crash- both kids inside. Not as sporty and fun as the Passat, but all of the practical features surpass it easily. The higher ground clearance is great for our winter climate, the AWD is reassuring and the T6 is great for hwy accelerations. As a family with two small kids, the cargo space is excellent and getting kids in/out is easier than in the lower Passat. Fuel economy could be better, but my kids' safety is worth it, especially after our accident. Great interior space for tall/ leggy people too.

Best Features

It is very practical, but also elegant. The interior fit/finish is beautiful and simple. Proves its worth on wintry roads. It's a beautiful tank and we enjoy it.

Worst Features

Fuel economy. But don't let that stop you. It is a heavy car, which makes it a safer car- it will use up more fuel because of this.
