AutoEnergy has unfortunately shown the Volvo XC70 as a fuel economy disappointment. Whether or not that matters to purchasers of luxury wagons, we know not. For AutoEnergy fuel efficiency comparisons, check out the XC70 against the Subaru Outback 2.5XT, or versus the BMW X3 3.0si, or the Lexus RX350. Expect more to come.

The Good Car Guy has written about the Volvo Lady before – to go directly to her website click here. Volvo equips the XC70, a car many would call a soft-roader at best, with Hill Descent Control. You want to see how that works, so follow this link to a YouTube clip. Finally, follow this link to Volvo’s website where you can see the interior actually function (seats flipping, ignition switching on etc.) and have a look at every possible exterior angle. Oh, and don’t forget the XC70 label here and underneath this post that’ll take you to each XC70-specific post from The Good Car Guy’s experience with the big Swede.
