Pros

Comfort, surprising acceleration, style, and quality craftsmanship all around

Cons

Requires premium (91+) octane fuel, synthetic oil, and constant detailing to look clean.  Brakes stop the car on a dime, but cause excessive amounts of brake dust.

Give It A Try - You Will Be Surprised At Just How Versatile This Car Is. — For a really great all around car, this is it. The XC70 really combines the best of all worlds, such as winter driving, safety, performance, comfort and style. It handles flawlessly in a foot and a half of snow, while also maneuvering quite nicely at triple digit speeds on the highway. It will hold a weeks worth of camping gear and five adults nicely, and mine still drives like new after 80,000 miles and being 6+ years old. For a car that still looks stylish whether freshly waxed, or covered in mud, the Volvo XC70 meets and exceeds most expectations on and off road; standing still, or cruising down the road.

Pros

the off-road capability

Cons

the too calm attitude of the transmission

Is It A Truck That Drive Like A Car Or A Car That Goes Where Trucks Goes — goes everywere, don't cost a lot to repair, handles like a charm, not like my 850 turbo but it'll go up any road in snow, in mud and with a lot of confort and class, plus the enormous trunk that could almost take a fridge.

Pros

Responsive power and safe handeling in bad road situations.  With the cross-over, you have great space for hobby equipment or road trips.

Cons

Could use a little less gas, but it is all wheel drive.

Sporty And Practical. — See above. Car has really handsome interior, good brakes, good steering, very good power for a "wagon"...for the money, this is a great car. Enough space for a trip, road trip or outting...find a good buy, it will fit in the back.

Practical Volvo Wagon. — Very practical, spacious, comfortable wagon. AWD works quite well. 2.5L Turbo adequate but not quite exciting.
