Inspired by What Car Did You Want Until You Drove It?

The family car, a wagon, brown, plastic cladding, durable interior. These are all the things I had heard about the Volvo XC70. I have no kids, I don’t really have the need for a wagon, and it only has an automatic. However when test driving cars before a move, I took one for a spin on a whim. Power was just fine and actually entertaining. Ergonomics were pretty fantastic and the interior materials were top notch. But those seats, oh those seats. I want to make them into an office chair they were so great. I did end up picking up an earlier one and really enjoyed my time owning the car.

What car did you not think you wanted until you drove it?
