Volvo V70 Interior & Passenger Comfort Questions

    We chose the V70 for it's safety, reliability, and comfort. We also got the 3rd row rear-facing seat, which most cars short of full-size SUV's don't have. Like I said, it's not exciting, but it is easily one of the best cars I've ever owned.

    You really can't beat the Volvo for around town utility and long-distance comfort. Pretty much a Swedish Buick...

    How long have you owned it? Did you compare with the Outback when you were shopping?

    I did like it a lot in many ways, just found that delayed throttle response very annoying.

    Exactly the same reasons we bought our 2010 V70. The gas mileage on it is outstanding, too. Had to order it and wait 3 months for it to be built, but it was worth the wait.
    I had been looking at the 2010 Outback and drove two of them, but many of them have a steering vibration problem that has not been fixed by Subaru. Read all 1300+ posts on the forum.

    We bought it new - 6 years ago next month.

    No, we didn't look at the Outback since the 3rd row seat was a priority for us. We cross-shopped with the Acura MDX and Toyota Highlander, to name a couple of contenders.

    I have a favor to ask. Can anyone with a V70 tell me the interior height in the cargo area, floor to ceiling? Dimensions for the cargo area are hard to find; I appreciate the help. Thanks...
