2016 XC70 New Car Test Drive
Even though the XC70 shape is growing dated, it still boasts strong lines along with its body armor, skid plates, and high ground clearance. It's no Jeep, just a tough all-wheel-drive wagon, pure as can be.
The instrumentation shows a decade of Swedish design, with simple controls and a center console that's as user-friendly as sensible shoes. The cabin is roomy enough for grownups, while the supportive front and rear seats stay comfortable on road trips with six-footers.
The rear seatback splits into three sections that fold forward to create 72 cubic feet of cargo space, much more than crossovers with their swoopy styling that compromises interior space.
