"This was the first Volvo I owned. I've driven lots of high-end cars and AWD vehicles. The Volvo beats them all. It is superbly quiet, very smooth riding, handles ANY kind of road conditions automatically. Drives effortlessly yet still gives you the sense of the road. Very thoughtfully laid out interior and doesn't have a forest of stems on the column. Premium Sound System is concert quality. The nav is easy to use and kinda fun. And because of Volvo's safety reputation, I feel very secure driving my grandchildren."
Pros: "Opt for the T6 over XC70-much more powerful"
Cons: "poor white on beige instrumentation lettering ."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"Marginal mpg at 21 overall but hit 26.5 mpg on trip and it does run on mid grade.
Expensive list but big discounts if willing to hassle. A nice luxury wagon if you plan to keep it past the early depreciation. Wonder how the high level of electronic displays and controls will hold up?"
"Sold my wifes SUV and picked up the T6 XC70.....wow!!!!
All wheel drive and awesome performance. Very comfortable, even for my being a novice body builder. I was so impressed by this vehicle I went out and bought one for myself too."
