The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
6.8
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. 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.
