The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Volvo V70 is the modern interpretation of the legendary Volvo wagons, with just as much utility but a lot more style and comfort. The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.
