Volvo V70

Tue, 06 Feb 2007

Volvo has just released details of the all-new Volvo V70 wagon. With its more athletic lines, fast windscreen angle, blacked-out side pillars and C30-inspired taillights, the V70's style is said to hint at its newfound on-road dynamism. The rear end features an unusual design where the tailgate takes the upper area of lamps with it when opened, giving the advantage of making the trunk aperture larger than before. In addition, the trunk has grown by 55 litres over the outgoing car. New safety features include an integrated rear child booster seat with two heights that can be fitted in both outer rear seats. Also new is a radar that constantly monitors the front of the car and activates a head-up display warning light and buzzer if the car approaches another vehicle from the rear with no driver reaction.

The V70 will be available with a range of powertrains including an all-new 3.0 liter in-line six-cylinder engine producing 285 PS. Other engines include Volvo's 2.5 liter turbocharged five cylinder and two versions of the 2.4 liter turbo diesel engine, with 163 PS and 185 PS.
