2017 Volvo XC70 Review

The new 2017 Volvo XC70, in general, will still retain the same characteristics its predecessor offers. With the raised suspension and its scuff protection, this crossover SUV will always make an interesting choice if you tend to drive a lot on gravel roads and dirt, or in inclement weather, while enjoying some luxury while doing it. Even though this makes a truly appealing benefit the XC70 offers, apparently it is actually what many competitors of the same segment do, even with a fresher design.

In general, the central control is easy to use, even though the multipurpose knobs lack are kind of less ergonomic to reach for their location and the absence of a touchpad input makes the system look outdated, see also 2017 Volkswagen Phaeton Hybrid Specs.
