Volvo has always had a knack for producing wagons that people actually want to buy. Even as other models fell prey to minivans and SUVs, Volvo stayed firmly in the wagon business. The original CX70 debuted in 1998 as an upscale, all-wheel drive version of the midsize V70.
The CX70 entered its third generation in 2008 and has received regular mechanical and equipment updates since then. Though not intended for off-road use, the CX70 offers muscular styling and ample ride height reminiscent of an SUV. It continues to find buyers who want all-weather performance and fine utility while staying within the passenger-car realm.
