Fast Family Hauler: 2006 Volvo V70R Wagon

If you try and compare the driving experience of the all-wheel-drive, manual gearbox, 300 horsepower Volvo V70R to a similar on paper Subaru STI or Mitsubishi Evo, you will probably find the Volvo lacking in exhilaration. But that’s okay, because Volvo wasn’t aiming to convert buyers of the boy-racer rally machines — and instead of was trying to compete with Audi’s S4, Mercedes-Benz C32/C55 AMG, and Jaguar S-Type R. Perhaps it wasn’t as fast as its competition, but the V70R was the only one available as a 7 passenger wagon with a shift-it-yourself gearbox. Find this 2006 Volvo V70R offered for $8999 buy-it-now or make-offer in Orchard Park, NY vi eBay.
