XC60 or XC70


Recommended Posts

Looking to change from the Mondeo to a Volvo which would be approx. 2 years old. I like both the XC60 and XC70, which is the better car.  Both would be the D4 spec as need reasonable fuel return when driving solo.

Both will be very capable tow cars but I think the XC 70 was discontinued in 2016.  Whereas the XC 60 is current.  Because of this you may get a better deal on the XC70.


Also.  Though I really like my V70.  I wish it had higher head room in the door opening.  The XC 70 is no doubt the same in this respect.  But I suspect that the XC 60 is better..


The 70 has a deeper boot.  But the overall capacity is little different I would guess.


Also need to compare weights and towing limits, but I bet they are similar.


The XC 60 is on my wish list.

There are some good deals around on the XC60 and the V90 at the minute as both models are being changed later this year (apparently).  My V90 was an ex-demonstrator which I got from Volvo in June when it was six months old/9,000 miles.
