2012 Volvo XC70 T6 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


XC70 t6 is a great looking solid vehicle... I test drove a 2012 t6 with 70K miles for about 40 minutes in city and highway... The MPG are not great but the power is smooth and it is a 4100 pound solid vehicle that you will hopefully be safe in. The seats and interior and features are fantastic better than a BMW, Audi, or MB. At this point it is either a MB wagon, XC70 t6, Subaru Out Back... I wont get a BMW wagon because of the RFT. I just don't see a utility vehicle or people mover not having a spare tire... The MB no off road... So its going to be an t6 or an Out Back. I would recommend a XC70 t6 it a very solid machine...

Best Features

Safety Safety Safety... Seats, Brown mixed colors, looks, Electronics Power... Turbo engine and transmission... Safety... Looks :) It is quiet, and just feels solid and does put a smile on your face... Yes there is a spare... Reg fuel... I can buy a 2012 t6 fully loaded with NAV 300 hp turbo w/ 70K miles for 25K or a 2014 Subaru Outback Limited no nav 4 cylinder boxer with one hundred miles for 27K... 177 HP just a little over 3100 lbs. Subaru has an 8" clearance...

Worst Features

Volvo insist on a FWD vehicle... This makes the car top heavy. Volvo should make this car a RWD and lower the engine... Or make it a Vertical not Horizontal... A lighter Flat 6 boxer engine Outback is cheaper and will handle better... Because of its low center of gravity and Subaru is able to have the best AWD vehicle out... If Subaru made the Out Back close to 50K with plush and added some weight and a Flat Six Turbo the out back would be incredible...
