Looking to perhaps get rid of a v70R and pick up a new X/C70 T6 with 4C. Has anyone made this switch? Any regrets?<p>

Re: Anyone driving a X/C70 T6 that had a V70 R? Are you happy? (ktm_525)

I've DRIVEN them, (and of course have owned the two best P2 R wagons).<br>I really do not like the new XC's, engine notwithstanding.<br>The wagon is HEAVY, ugly, bulbous, heavy doors, uncomfortable (my back hurts every time I drive one for more than a 1/2 hour, just like an XC90).<br>They handle like crap, have no soul, etc, <I>however it IS well built <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> </I>.<p>My suggestion would be to <B>drive an XC60,</B> I think you will be impressed.<br>I REALLY like these, they look great, they drive great, have decent power, handle very well, built as well or better than the XC and are comfortable. In fact I was thinking if they had 50 more hp they would be a perfect R replacement and there are (or will be soon) some tuning upgrades! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> so that is answered.<p>I am <B>very </B>impressed with the entire vehicle, plus they're a bit cheaper than an XC! I'm not an SUV fan but it drives and feels more like a wagon, (not "tall")<p>Shall I continue?

Girltronic only, will never ever be an R replacement this way.
