The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Volvo V70 is the modern interpretation of the legendary Volvo wagons, with just as much utility but a lot more style and comfort. If you don’t mind buying a 2009 Saab 9-5 that looks almost exactly like the 1999 model, there’s still a lot of quirky appeal.
