Volvo XC70 $59,990

The Courier-Mail - Motoring - - Cover Story -

The big all-wheel-drive wagon sits 210mm clear of the road, giv­ing it more than enough room to clam­ber over kerbs and ride roughshod over piles of snow at the lo­cal ski field. Backed by a 575L boot, it is a hugely ca­pa­ble get­away ma­chine. The Volvo is all about cruis­ing in com­fort, so the in­ten­tion­ally cos­set­ing ride comes at the ex­pense of cor­ner­ing abil­ity. The base diesel en­gine has more than enough go but some ex­pected gear — like a pow­ered tail­gate and sat­nav — re­quire a dip into the ex­ten­sive op­tions list.
