Which used Volvo XC70 estate should I buy?
The XC70 is well equipped, with every model being fitted with climate control, cruise control, electric windows, adjustable lumbar support on the driver's seat and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors. However, we'd recommend a higher spec SE Lux example, because there are plenty of them available used and they make the XC70 feel a bit more luxurious.
Look out for cars fitted with the optional Winter and Family packs, too. The former added heated seats and headlight washers, while the latter added the hugely handy integrated child booster seats in the outer rear seats.
Neither of the petrol engines is really an option for most people, because of high running costs and the limited number of them available on the used market. Of the diesel range, the 2.4-litre D5 is reasonably efficient and flexible enough to suit most people's needs. There are plenty of examples available, and you can usually find them with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive.
