The XC70 model didn’t officially launch until the 2003 model year, but its roots date back to the 1997 Volvo V70 Cross Country – an SUV-like wagon. Following its overwhelming success, the Cross Country became its own model in 2002, although Volvo changed its name to XC70 just a year later. The Swedish automaker calls the XC70 a crossover, but it's as close to a wagon as crossovers get.
Carried over for 2013, the XC70's only real changes include a handful of new standard features and a pair of new optional packages. The XC70 comes in seven trim levels: 3.2, 3.2 Premier, 3.2 Premier Plus, 3.2 Platinum, T6, T6 Premier Plus, and T6 Platinum.
The 3.2 trim level acts as the baseline for the 2013 Volvo XC70. It comes standard with a 240-horsepower 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine; front and rear fog lights; 16-by-7-inch Cecino alloy wheels; a roof spoiler; a cabin air filter; a power driver’s seat with three-position memory; an eight-speaker sound system with 160 watts, USB and iPod connectors and a 5-inch color screen; and T-Tec upholstery that looks and feels like leather.
The 3.2 Premier on the 3.2 with additional features like: leather seating, a moonroof, autostart, walnut inlays and an eight-way power passenger’s seat.
The 3.2 Premier Plus adds to the 3.2 Premier Plus: dual xenon headlights; front and rear parking assist; a power tailgate; HomeLink; a cargo cover; a rearview-mirror-mounted compass; and grocery-bag holders in the cargo area.

Super-low pricing, famed AWD system and high mpg, weak base engine and poor standard features
Peppy base engine, acceptable mpg and retro-meets-modern styling, but MyFord Touch is finicky at best
Excellent value, tons of standard features and good mpg, but low-powered engine and not at all rugged
Famed build quality, excellent mpg and feature packed, but quirky styling and underpowered engine
