The 2016 Volvo XC70 wagon proves that the
SUV has not conquered every family. As capable and luxurious as the finest Volvo
sedan, the XC70 adds SUV-like ground clearance and available all-wheel drive for light off-road duty. A lengthy list of optional features keeps the XC70 a step ahead of the Subaru Outback and right in line with Audi’s Allroad.
New Features and Revisions
Changes to the 2016 Volvo XC70 are few but significant. New standard features include 18-inch wheels and heated front seats. The turbocharged 3.0-liter and normally aspirated 3.2-liter engines have been discontinued, replaced by the 2.5-liter turbocharged 5-cylinder from the XC60.
