Bigger, safer, better. That'll be the new V70

Volvo unveiled two key new models at Geneva – the V70 estate and its faux-by-four sibling, the XC70. Key cars because despite the growing popularity of its smaller saloons and bigger SUVs, the big V70 estate is Volvo’s heartland model. Get this one wrong and thousands of loyal buyers would turn on their wellies and buy elsewhere.

Not that the V70 has got it wrong. Penned by Brit designer Steve Mattin, the V70 treads a safe evolutionary line. It’s bigger, safer, more intelligently configured and with the flagship T6 swinging with a 285bhp turbocharged punch, it’s faster too.
