This is seems like a knocking good piece of Swedish automobile. I know this because I've been knocking the hell out of it, both inside and out. I know, people always ask me how on Earth I manage to test drive a car just by a few gentle fist taps on the hood or/and on the center console, but this is a trade secret, so I won't divulge anything.
Back to the Volvo XC70 D5, I believe its most interesting feature resides in its actual name. The “D” part, to be more specific. I mean, except for a BMW “M” or a V8 emblem, this is probably one of the best ways to let people know that you spend your money wisely. On top of the great engine, the way you feel like a rich Norseman each time you sink in those brown leather seats makes the car practically pay for itself.
The interior is so spacious you could fit a whole team of Viking footballers and still leave room for their matching horned helmets in the trunk. OK, some of them might not fit in a seating position but still, the XC70 is as spacious as a cave.
The fact that you can cruise on almost any type of terrain or park it over a pretty good number of smaller cars without getting a scratch is also a plus, not to mention the fact that lesbians are going to love your if you drive one. Or so I've heard from my fellow test drivers...
Anyway, to make a long story short, my conclusion is that this is one of the best cars to buy if you're a fishing maniac (like me, he he) or if you are planning to have lots of kids and drive them to adventurous places. By the way, I think northern Canada might be a good playground for this car. It's right near Sweden, isn't it?
