Volvo has successfully changed their family wagon-making image by producing turbo-charged high-performing vehicles that are not only extremely safe, but luxurious and fun to drive. However, this does not mean that the automaker doesn’t still produce the best wagons in North America. The 2013 Volvo XC70 is a hefty wagon that is more an adventure vehicle than transportation. The new XC70 is a perfect blend of touch and sporty with Volvo’s trademark superior safety and convenience features. New for the 2013 model year is the 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine providing 240 horsepower and the higher model’s 3.0-liter providing 300 horsepower. One has optional AWD and the other has standard AWD, but both are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. One reviewer from Thecarconnection.com describes the interior of the new Volvo XC70, saying, “The XC70 doesn’t at all break from tradition inside, where just like its Volvo-wagon predecessors it has roomy, reconfigurable, and adult-size accommodations. Supportive front seats are sized just right and great for long trips, and the second-row seat is one of the few that proves comfortable for six-footers.” For more information about the XC70, or to take a look at any Volvo vehicle, contact Barrier Volvo .
