The 2001 V70 XC station wagon is built for comfort, safety, and style. The “XC” stands for Country and it’s the all-wheel version.     If you’re familiar Volvo’s S80, the V70 is based on model.

Since I have much mastered the sub-compact car so far, I think Steve is now my experiences to encompass the station segment.   Not that I’m complaining the wagons we’ve received to have been very cars – including Volvo V70, the Saab 9-3 Wagon and the Legacy Outback.

I found the Volvo V70 XC to be a good between both of the other I’ve driven.   It was stylish and like the SAAB 9-5, yet it was and functional like the Outback.

has done a nice job on making the styling unique and attractive the use of rounded yet distinct edges.   The is classy with rich, leather seats and leather steering wheel and gearshift.   The contrast inside and out on our Volvo V70 car was interesting yet surprisingly appealing

  The interior was a graphite gray and the exterior was Ash Gold Metallic.

For reason, the safety features stuck out in my mind as I reviewed the V70 XC.   I definitely felt safe the car.     I was most impressed the inflatable side curtains system they’ve installed as a safety feature.

  In the event of an accident, these curtains inflate for added all along the side windows the front pillar to the rear    It looks almost like a inflatable beach raft.    It has airbags for the driver and front plus side-impact airbags.   All are provided with padded rests/restraints.

  I think all cars come with head for every passenger.

When you the car from outside, the lights go on so you can see inside before entry with an anti-theft ignition with coded keys.   The system on the car has a separate back-up for the siren that is useful if your car battery fails.

As for the leather front seats comfortably wide and the rear provided enough room for passengers easily.   The ride was and sturdy.      It was a bit noisy the sunroof fully opened.

One of the best attributes of the Volvo V70 XC was the capacity.   It has about 71 Ѕ cubic of cargo space.   This car built for a nice ride, yet too.

  I very easily fit 15 of mulch in the back – and YES   I had an extra large tarp and around so as not to get anything in the car.   I had to its haul-ability!   It passed with marks.   The Volvo V70 XC has a clearance the ground to the bottom of the car of 8.2 inches and is to handle such cargo.

J   made it easy to keep the by providing a rubber reversible mat.

For an additional $225, you have a Cargo Security which our test car had.   would be nice to have if you a smaller pet too that you’d to keep in the cargo area you travel.

  Or to stack things and keep in place back there.    It was to use by simply pulling down place.

Even the storage in the front of the Volvo V70 were useful.

All the doors had narrow, yet storage bins that across the doors.    The center and compartment could hold 8 CDs and the lid as a two-person cup holder for those in back when the lid was flipped   The front doors could a couple pop cans in each plus there were two cup holders built into the console with a grip bar to them.

   And I can’t forget the cup holder, yes ninth.   It pops out of the instrument panel.   (Volvo have thought the V70 XC drivers and are a thirsty bunch!)   If one of our favorite Car hosts, Roger, were to this car on cup holders alone, and cup holders I must add, the car get a four-tire rating!   Roger, be in cup-holder heaven – just need a built-in   (Not a pretty picture.)

There was even a place for sunglasses to be secured by a rubber

The Volvo V70 XC performed well.    It was zippy with an aggressive yet smooth and solid.   It is powered by turbo engine with 197 and is all-wheel-drive.   To handle better inclement weather, it also has a Geartronic transmission with a mode.

  It also has four-wheel control and four-wheel power disc brakes with an braking system.

The extras on our V70 XC test car were certainly yet did add about another $5,000 to the price.   The Cold Weather included heated front and headlamp wiper and washer.   The Package provided a power seat; trip computer/CD and auto dimming mirror a Homelink system.

   The Leather is what made this car so nice on the inside with seating surfaces; leather steering wheel and gearshift plus the simulated wood on the side doors and glove box

Overall, out of a four tire with four being the best, I give the 2001 V70 XC a three-tire rating for a well average rating.

Kristi’s Fun

Volvo has in the works a feature would adjust driver automatically through the driver’s   A mechanism, an eye sensor, would be in the car to automatically “look” for your   Once found, the sensor would automatically adjust to the size by moving the seat, the steering wheel and center – including the gearshift for the best

Volvo is now owned by the Ford Company.
