2012 Volvo XC70

Hats off to the Volvo XC70 for winning the Vincentric Best Value in America award for 2012, competing in the premium wagon segment against prestigious competitors from Mercedes-Benz and Audi. The Volvo took the win with the lowest depreciation in its class as the key contributing factor. But the XC70 didn’t stop at low depreciation; it also had the best in class insurance, maintenance, and repair costs. Nicely done.
