The Volvo has some of the best seats we've ever sat on, and both driver's perch and steering wheel have plenty of adjustment. The fascia is neat, attractive and well equipped, and the cabin is as solidly built as you would expect. Clever touches include a hook for handbags or a curry.
Volvo V70 space & practicality
The V70 is both big and clever. Not only does it have an enormous rear load area, it also has luggage nets and hooks, straps to keep your groceries from being flung all over the boot, a bin and even an umbrella holder. The centre of the rear seat even contains a pop-up picnic table or worktop. Rear seat space is a bit tight for tall passengers.
Volvo V70 equipment
Standard equipment is generous. All models get a CD player and all have either climate control or air-con. Leather trim is standard in most and all versions have a full range of seat and steering adjustment, powered windows and door mirrors.
