KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 10/18/2013


While the SUV is certainly popular, its large proportions and high center of gravity are not for everyone. Unfortunately not many manufacturers produce wagons and even fewer offer them with all-wheel drive (AWD) and high ground clearance. If the Subaru Outback or Honda Crosstour prove too generic for your taste, then the 2014 Volvo XC70 is likely to catch your attention and keep it. In addition to an available turbocharged engine, the XC70 offers a far more luxurious interior and more amenities than the Outback, although the Volvo cannot match the Outback's fuel economy. Still, if you're looking for a family vehicle with a proven safety record plus a premium luxury-car feel, the XC70 is probably it.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you like getting off the beaten path, but you also like to be coddled when traversing paved roads, the 2014 Volvo XC70 wagon has you covered. The XC70 can take on light off-road challenges or deep snow with ease. Volvo's reputation for safety and comfort is exemplary.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The XC70 can't carry more than five passengers, really four in comfort, and it can't do any serious off-roading. If you just need the XC70's AWD abilities but not its premium brand name and price tag, the Subaru Outback makes a far better choice.

What's New for 2014

For 2014, the Volvo XC70 gets a slight front and rear-end freshening, some new equipment and a revised interior including a new adaptive digital instrument cluster on T6 models. Cyclist Detection is added to the Technology Package while the Climate Package adds a heated windshield and steering wheel.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The base XC70 models are propelled by a 240-horsepower 6-cylinder engine that provides acceptable acceleration and passing power. For those who prefer a more spirited run, the T6's turbocharged 300-horsepower engine is far more desirable. The added power is better suited to the added weight associated with the AWD system, although to be fair, even the front-wheel-drive (FWD) trims are far from being lightweight. The T6 for 2014 is capable of sprinting to 60 mph in just under 7 seconds, but that is straight-line performance. Once a curve appears, you'll want to dial back throttle input a bit as the XC70's increased ride height and softer suspension settings make it lean noticeably in tight turns. On the highway, the XC70 is comfortable and quiet. Hill Descent Control, standard on AWD models, adds confidence on slippery slopes.

Favorite Features

POWER TAILGATE
Here's an option you'll appreciate every time you find yourself with an armful. The touch of a button raises or lowers the tailgate, leaving your hands free for other tasks.

CARGO ROOM
One of the XC70's best attributes is its generous amount of space. With the rear seats folded flat, it boasts a vast 72.1 cubic feet of room plus hidden storage underneath. In a pinch, you could sleep in the thing.
