Volvo's focus on safety means a plethora of standard anti-collision systems, from anti-lock disc brakes, to stability control, to a full array of airbags and active headrests. Integrated booster seats for the rear bench are optional on the XC70, as are a blind-spot monitor and a package that includes adaptive cruise control, a collision warning system, a driver fatigue warning system, and lane-departure warning.

Standard goodies on the 2010 V70 include Bluetooth connectivity, fog lamps, heated side mirrors, a power driver's seat, keyless entry, cruise control, and dual-zone climate control. Optional extras include front and rear parking assist, heated front and rear seats, heated wiper nozzles, headlamp cleaners, active bi-xenon headlamps, a dual-screen rear DVD system, adaptive cruise control, and a 650-watt Dynaudio surround-sound system. Last year saw the introduction of a Technology Package (including adaptive cruise control and several accident-avoidance aids) that groups together the bi-xenon headlamps, the premium Dynaudio sound system, and Sirius Satellite Radio.

This year the XC70 adds standard Sirius satellite radio to its features list. A rearview camera is a new option on either version; the XC70 with the turbo engine gets a standard moonroof. The optional navigation system tucks neatly inside the dash when not in use, but its knob-driven functions can be a bit confusing.

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.
