VOLVO V70 R
So you want to get to the lake fast, don’t’ want an SUV, but still need room?
This little gem of a ride is a Volvo V70R. Volvo wagons are know for their room, safety and lifespan. How many of you knew someone or know someone in high school who’s first ride was the family hand-me-down Volvo wagon? I knew plenty. We drove the crap out of them and they never missed a beat. One nicely kept little secrete about the Volvo wagons is their sturdy chassis meaning they handle real well. Some haul ass which is always a bonus because Volvo wagons are usually not on the speed radar. The V70R happens to have 300hp which is nice for long trips to the vacation lake.
If you do make a wagon decision someday, make sure to wave to the nice people in the group towing the boat. With all the extra room you have inside the wagon, be nice and offer to take some of their gear or passengers.
