(2002 model shown)


Volvo's mid-size station wagon comes powered in its base form by a 168-horsepower, 2.4-liter five-cylinder engine. The 2.4T version adds a supercharged version that nets 197 horsepower. Both are mated to a choice of a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. While the T5 version is deleted for 2006, the sporty V70R remains in the lineup and packs a 300-horsepower, 2.5-liter in-line-five-cylinder under its hood that can be fitted to either a six-speed manual gearbox or the aforementioned automatic. The V70R also offers a Servotronic power-steering system, suspension upgrades, beefier Brembo brakes, and a newly upgraded Haldex "Instant Traction" all-wheel drive system, A host of standard safety features includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and front-side and head-curtain airbags. For 2006, new 16-inch alloy wheels replace the previously standard 15-inch rims, with 17-inch wheels and tires optional.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
