The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Volvo V70 looks a lot more with the times than the Volvo wagons of the past, but there’s just as much of an emphasis on utility and safety. The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.
