Volvo XC70 Car Review – MotorPoint
2008 Volvo XC70: Inoffensive Transportation
By The Car Family
Volvos redone XC70s main trait is to blend in and avoid controversy. Even though there has been major work done the old XC is nearly identical in appearance and performance to the new one. Thus if you can forgo the extra safety features and larger cargo capacity a good deal on a 2007 model would be in order. Remember that these arent big sellers but they do have a wonderful reputation for utility and safety that should appeal to those customers who like a bit of character in what they drive as well as having a practical bent.
To make more room the new model is two inches longer in the wheelbase and four inches longer overall. This makes for a very commodious interior but one that lacks any type of exotic or cushy features. It is as if Volvo decided that being political correct was the way to attract new customers. There arent any sharp edges puffy leather surfaces glaring chrome pieces and no electronic doodads just a large cavern on wheels. Of course that cavern has a host of safety features that has become a tradition from this Swedish company.
