Not many manufacturers produce wagons, and even fewer offer them with all-wheel drive and high ground clearance. Even among its few competitors, the Volvo XC70 stands out for by offering a more luxurious interior and more amenities.

What's New For 2014

The XC70 gets a slight front and rear-end freshening for 2014. Also new is a revised interior including a new adaptive digital instrument cluster on Turbo models. Cyclist Detection is added to the Technology Package, while the Climate Package receives a heated windshield and steering wheel.

Choosing Your Volvo XC70

Volvo offers a number of trim levels, but the most important choice buyers make is between two engines, both of which use a six-speed automatic transmission and run on regular unleaded gasoline:

  • The 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder produces a modest 240 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is rated at 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with front-wheel drive; with all-wheel drive the highway number drops to 25 mpg.
  • A 3-liter turbocharged inline-six with 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque is optional. Fuel economy is 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. A dealer-installed performance package called polestar retunes the turbo engine for 325 horsepower without affecting the fuel economy or warranty.

Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is optional—even on base models. Also standard are rain-sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, front and rear skidplates, an 8-way power driver's seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, locking cargo-floor compartment, 160-watt audio system with AM/FM/HD Radio, Bluetooth hands-free communication, and cruise control.

T6 AWD models come standard with the turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive. Standard equipment includes an adaptive digital instrument cluster, leather seating, a power moonroof and power passenger seat.

All XC70s feature Volvo's 5-year/50,000-mile warranty with five years of complimentary scheduled maintenance and roadside assistance.

CarsDirect Tip

If you crave a six-cylinder Volvo, get them while you can: The company has announced that all cars will have four—or fewer—cylinders in the not-too-distant future. The turbocharged T6 is the better choice here.
