Volvo XC70 Overview

The XC70 is a wagon version of the S80 with a raised ride height. It has many of Volvo's safety features, including collision-avoidance systems and a blind-spot warning system that works well. The powertrain we tested was an unremarkable 3.2-liter six-cylinder mated to a six-speed automatic, with available AWD, but it returned just 18-mpg overall. A more powerful, turbocharged six comes with the T6 trim, and a new turbo-four and eight-speed automatic is standard on front-drive models. The ride is fairly stiff, but handling is secure. Inside, the cabin is quiet and luxuriously trimmed, and the seats are comfortable. Reliability has been average.
