Summary: The Volvo XC70 wagon combines real off-road ability with first-class safety and luxury appointments. Virtually alone in terms of direct competition from other premium brands, the XC70's closest competitor remains the Subaru Outback. While the Subaru may be a more capable off-roader, it can't match the XC70's luxury trimmings and premium-brand status. If a big SUV is more vehicle than you need, and a third-row seat is not an issue, the Volvo XC70 is ideal for the active-lifestyle family.
