What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2006 Volvo V70

2006 Volvo V70 Seat Room and Comfort: Pros

2007 4dr Wagon turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
It may seem strange to rate seat comfort so highly, but that's only if you have never driven in a Volvo. Amazing, ergonomic, adjustable, but those could describe many seats. What my wife would say (and I've read others express as well) is if you have back problems, get your Dr. to prescribe you a Volvo! They are that good. see full Volvo V70 review

Almost as good as the seats in the 92 960. Good support & position except left footrest small & too far left. Lumbar support too far down for a tall person but bearable. Electric memory allows easy switching of seat position on long trips. Bun warmer. see full Volvo V70 review

I have been driving Volvos for 45 years, starting with a PV444. With every model the seats are the most comfortable and best support for driving. They provide leg, lumbar, and side support, and both driver and passenger seats have 6 way controls. see full Volvo V70 review
2006 Volvo V70 Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Wagon turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Though not a big issue, the rear seats could be a bit wider for better 3-abreast seating (though most vehicles share this limitation). The greater need, however, is another few inches of legroom. It is adequate, but only that. Another 3 or 4 inches would make the rear seat amazing, but then again, that would come at the cost of rear cargo capacity ... no such thing as a "free lunch". see full Volvo V70 review

To give rear seats reasonable amount of room, you have to keep front seats forwards. see full Volvo V70 review

I meant to choose the rear seat item. It could use more leg room in the rear. In the process of putting a lot of cargo space and comfortable front seat in a short car, the rear leg room took the hit. see full Volvo V70 review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2006 Volvo V70

2006 Volvo V70 Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Wagon turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Based on specs from most current vehicles, the 208 hp and 236 lb/torque doesn't sound like much, but the torque comes on early and the vehicle doesn't lack for power when merging on the highway or passing, as the need arises. Fuel economy isn't spectacular, but neither is it anywhere near as poor as heavier vehicles, like true SUV's. As always, one's driving habits impact on that more than most other variables. see full Volvo V70 review
