2014 Volvo XC70 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Volvo XC70 is an off-road-themed wagon with the ground clearance of an SUV and the sleek shape of a wagon. Volvo’s five-seat wagon welcomes a few updates for 2014. The XC70 features front- or all-wheel drive and competes with the Cadillac CTS, Subaru Outback and Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagons.

New for 2014
The 2014 XC70 is mildly restyled up front and has additional technology on the inside with an electronic gauge cluster, new multimedia system and enhanced safety features.

ExteriorVolvo aimed for a rugged and refined contemporary look while updating the XC70 for 2014. The new look is mildly different and includes a bolder grille, additional matte silver touches and restyled taillights. The off-road theme is prevalent on the XC70’s exterior with protective black cladding surrounding the lower portion of the car and skid plates underneath for off-road protection. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 17-inch wheels
  • Available 18-inch wheels
  • Available heated windshield

InteriorThe XC70 has room for five occupants and features folding rear seats in a 40/20/40 configuration. The XC70 has an available configurable digital gauge cluster for 2014 that replaces a standard tachometer and speedometer on T6 trim levels, and is optional on base 3.2 models. Display options include a traditional appearance, eco theme with eco meter and green background or a performance theme with red background.

Other new technology includes an available Sensus Connected Touch multimedia system with 7-inch display that receives an internet connection for in-car apps and Wi-Fi from a wireless card or mobile phone. Interior features include:

  • Available integrated child booster seats
  • Available heated steering wheel

Under the HoodThe base 3.2 uses a 3.2-liter inline-six-cylinder with standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive while the T6 trim level gets a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder and standard all-wheel drive. T6 models receive new transmission programming to reduce shift time and knock .4 seconds off the zero-to-60 mph time — from 6.9 to 6.5 seconds. Mechanical features include:

  • 240-horsepower, 3.2-liter six-cylinder with 236 pounds-feet of torque (3.2)
  • 300-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder with 325 pounds-feet of torque (T6)
  • Six-speed automatic transmission
  • 3,300-pound towing capacity

SafetyVolvo’s City Safety technology is standard and includes a low-speed collision prevention feature that now works at speeds up to 31 mph to automatically brake when a collision is detected. Safety features include:

  • Available pedestrian detection
  • Available cyclist detection
  • Electronic stability system
  • Antilock brakes

Safe, Comfortable, Versatile Luxury Drive

Great for long distance travels. The XC was one of the first cross-over style autos. All the comfort of a car with the ability to attack rugged terrain safely.

Great car, safe,comfortable, peace of mind

Another Volvo in our family and another wonderful experience!! Our family has owned over a dozen Volvo automobiles and each one has been a pleasure to onward drive.

4.3

It's all you could ever NEED!

All wheel drive. Huge cargo space for most every situation. Enough power but not a rocket ship. Great looking. Roll cage surrounds you for incredible safety. Like 14 Airbags!! It's not a BMW, Audi or Mercedes-Benz but it's all you'll ever need.
