Exterior  - 2005 Volvo XC70 Review - Reviews - Volvo XC70

The midsize XC70 rides a 108.8-inch wheelbase and measures 186.3 inches long overall. Rounded front corners resemble those of Volvo's S80 sedan, but the rear half retains the straight lines and profile of a traditional wagon.

Intended for moderately rough trekking, the XC70 has large bumpers that are augmented by moldings around the wheel arches and lower body. Ground clearance measures 8.2 inches, which helps give the wagon an appearance similar to that of an authentic SUV. Alloy wheels hold 16-inch tires, and a moonroof is optional.
