Expert Quotes:

“seats are excellent, achieving a blend of body-soothing comfort and body-holding support”
Edmunds

“assembly quality is first rate”
ConsumerGuide

“thousand of dollars below any of its prime competitors”
Kelley Blue Book

“The quiet comfort that the V70 provides is the automotive equivalent of Grandma’s meatloaf.”
Car and Driver

The 2009 Volvo V70 continues a tradition of exceptional comfort and quality feel. Car and Driver feels “the quiet comfort that the [2009 Volvo] V70 provides…makes you feel better after a long day”—especially when you consider the blue-plate-special base price.

Edmunds raves that the “V70’s seats are excellent, achieving a blend of body-soothing comfort and body-holding support.” They also like the rear seat comfort, as well as its 40/20/20 split-folding seatback and available height-adjustable integrated child booster seats. ConsumerGuide weighs in on the interior ambiance, finding “cabin materials are padded and/or nicely grained where it matters most,” and “assembly quality is first rate.” They also like the standard vinyl/cloth seat material that feels “durable and expensive,” but complain the “gray of our test car appeared solemnly bland.” Car and Driver asserts that the V70 “only comes across as a wallflower because it takes a while for its charm to sneak up on you.” And there’s a lot of goodness for a car loaded with standard equipment at an MSRP of just above $33,000.

With 72.1 cubic feet of cargo space, the 2009 Volvo V70 is the largest station-wagon model in the Swedish automaker’s lineup and makes the heft and height of an SUV seem superfluous. ConsumerGuide praises the “large, boxy, nicely finished cargo area” that “features flat folding second-row seats and handy under floor storage.” Road & Track also likes the “sliding load floor, a storage compartment under the load floor and an optional power tailgate.”

Conclusion

The 2009 Volvo V70 offers designer comfort, plus a lot more quality than you’ll find at IKEA.

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.
