2006 Volvo V70 R Overview

The V70R is the Volvo wagon that truly has it all. If you are the type who really only feels safe in an all-wheel-drive vehicle, this set of wheels should more than satisfy.
Safe travel is a given with Volvo, and the AWD only increases the good feeling, especially for drivers in snow-prone climes. That feature combined with the Swedish automaker's legendary crash-protection systems finds V70 owners rolling out of their driveways confident that they will reach their destination safely.
The patented Side-Impact Protection System and Whiplash Protection System lead the way, joined by front and side-curtain airbags for both driver and passenger, innovative seatbelt pretensioners, contoured seats that keep occupants from sliding out from beneath the belt, and padded headrests. On top of that, there's simply a good amount of protective metal. European and American crash tests returned top results in frontal crash tests, and excellent results for the side crash test.
The turbo-charged 2.5-liter, 300 horsepower engine is available with either the standard 6-speed manual overdrive or the 6-speed automatic overdrive transmission. You can expect to get 18 miles per gallon around town and 24 to 25 on the highway.
Leather comes standard, an upgrade to finest-quality leather was available. Every V70R came with an audio system featuring both a cassette player and CD player. An optional navigation system is available.
User reviews were generally positive, reflecting a safe car that was fun to drive. But one owner declared his V70R a total lemon, adding that he had traded it in after six miserable months of ownership.
