The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Volvo XC70 crossover offers safety and wagon-based practicality; it's a useful alternative to taller, blockier crossovers and sport-utility vehicles. The 2012 Subaru Tribeca has excellent all-weather handling and top-notch safety, though it's fallen behind the curve in features and interior appointments.
