Benefits of Driving a 2012 Volvo XC70 Wagon Crossover

Volvo has always set the bar when it comes to safety, and the XC70 exemplifies that. And with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive available, buyers are able to choose the wagon that best suits their needs. Healthy output from both available engines adds performance appeal to the XC70, and with a smooth ride, plenty of cargo capacity and competitive pricing, the Volvo XC70 makes a strong case against rival wagons from BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

What's new for 2012?

Volvo's XC70 continues on for 2012 with several notable safety and convenience updates. These changes include Volvo's Pedestrian Safety system with full auto brake, Volvo's City Safety feature, and adaptive cruise control with Queue Assist. Volvo's Sensus infotainment system, which debuted on the 2011 S60, is now standard. Several exterior trim changes have also been made, including reworked headlights, wheels, an updated 3-spoke steering wheel and several new interior colors.

Model Review

Volvo discontinued the V70 wagon in 2011, leaving the XC70 as the remaining big wagon from the automaker. In previous years the XC70 came only with all-wheel drive, though starting last year, the base model comes equipped with front wheel drive.
