Great Compromise
By Mark on


2010 Volvo XC70 T6 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Replaced Volvo S60 T5 (250 hp) and Lexus LX-450 (inline 6 at 218 hp) with 2010 XC70 T6. Key features: rear seat that folds into flat floor for transporting dogs, driver's seat I can sit in for an hour without my back hurting (sadly the reason I couldn't go with Audi), acceptable performance with 281 hp engine, nice mix of luxury features like highway manners at 90 mph. Delivered on all of the above at what seemed like a very competitive price compared with functionally equivalent vehicles from other manufacturers. Biggest drawback is having to refill gas tank so frequently.

Best Features

Not thrilling but gets me home as fast as anything else I could drive on highway. Ground clearance is greatly appreciated compared with today's sedans.

Worst Features

Larger gas tank. Seems ridiculous that range on a full tank is below 300 miles.
