Driving Impressions  - 2005 Volvo XC70 Review - Reviews - Volvo XC70

Serving as a thoroughly civilized, tightly constructed road machine, the XC70 cruises effortlessly. A touch on the gas pedal can make the car leap ahead, whether the driver is starting off from a standstill or is passing or merging.

Steering is on the heavy side, but it's not ponderous. Volvo's wagons are stable on the highway and corner well, but they can't be called snappy in urban driving. The XC70's firm suspension copes adeptly with bumps. Ride comfort is excellent on smooth roads. Even though you feel commotion on rough surfaces, not much is transmitted to the occupants.
