Reviews the 2012 Volvo XC70

Volvo xc70
To Volvo, "station wagon" isn't a dirty word, and nor should it be, says Senior Family Editor Kristin Varela. The XC70 is a comfortable and practical family hauler, though its retro-boxy exterior could use some updating, according to Varela. Volvo's wagon redeems itself inside, however, with a spacious interior and plenty of cargo room.

2012 Volvo XC70 Review


the taillights on this car look like they belong on one of those family caravan volvos ...


I'd like to see Volvo return to rear wheel drive in at least some of their models.


That's not a station wagon, it's a crossover. Station wagon is a dirty word to Volvo USA - they no longer sell any wagons to the US market. The V40, V50, V60, V70, and V90 are gone or overseas-only. Everyone sells crossovers, who sells wagons anymore?
