2014 Volvo XC70 - Great Midsized SUV with Great Features

Durham, North Carolina
Fuel Economy
This vehicle has a very smooth ride and has decent acceleration for a mid-sized SUV. There are many more airbags than your standard vehicle which give this a high safety rating. For an SUV, the MPG is great on the highway. The car handles very well in extreme rain and weather conditions. The rear hatch is big enough for luggage and other items, and when the back seat is lowered you can easily accommodate longer items such as skis. The rear side panel and rear windows have a factory tint for privacy.
When I got the vehicle we went to the State Fair and parking was a nightmare. The ability to easily get into a parking place with the great turning circumference and back up assist was clutch !
The seats are extremely comfortable which was important to me due to the fact that I drive a lot for work. The heated front seats are nice in colder weather. The interior is roomy and the back seat is not cramped. The interior as a metal trim which makes it look sporty. Internal controls are intuitive and easy to use. The seats have memory settings - pretty convenient for my husband and I to keep the seat settings as my husband is quite taller than I. The turn signals on the side view mirrors are nice.
I read several reviews that discussed a slight delay in acceleration which I discovered when I test drove it. This did not stop me from buying the vehicle, though. Although not an actual part of the SUV, there was an absolute annoyance with Sirius radio. The vehicle comes with three months of Sirius Radio free and Sirius will send you mail, email you, and keep calling until you activate. I had to call them and tell them to stop because I did not wish to take advantage of their offer.
