Sitting in the XC70 gets the feeling that you’re at home – the driver’s seat is spacious, cozy and comfortable. It resembles a chair, but it does not “float”, and really comfortable sitting and watching the road. Passenger seat is also encouraging – the driver behind can easily accommodate three people. And, by the way, in various design versions of the Volvo XC70 can be equipped with additional rear seat inserts, it was possible to seat the child from 3 years. It’s a great idea for a family crossover.

As for the quality of finish materials, then after the restyling no doubt that you are in first class, not left at all. And again in some trim levels you can play with different materials, from soft leather to unique floor mats with logos. On the dashboard there is nothing superfluous. It is strict and, one might say, luxury. All the control buttons are designed in an elegant style. There is a small touch screen that will become the driver of great help thanks to built-in functions.

Speed switches easily and quickly. In city car gives 47 mpg and accelerates to 60 mph in 9 seconds.

The car stuffing with different systems remained the same. Except for some details in the information system – it get updated design and added some features that can be operated easily, without being distracted from the road. The company’s engineers worked hard on the sound system — it has become stronger and sound surrounds you on all sides, thanks to the speakers mounted in doors. In General, inside all the same options: a heated steering wheel and gear lever; monitoring system of urban infrastructure (helps the driver to follow the road signs); blind spot vision system; Parking assistant; brake assist; ability to find pedestrians, cyclists.
