2014 Volvo XC70 Reviews

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

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
