I see Volvo hasn't given up on the halfway SUV idea

Far from it. In fact Volvo UK watched sales of the old V70-based XC70 rise after the introduction of the full-blown XC90 off-roader. Apparently many buyers were lured into showrooms by the XC90 but found themselves signing on the dotted line for its smaller brother. This new XC was unveiled at the Geneva show this week but won't reach UK showrooms until September.

The new V70 also unveiled this week at Geneva and previewed in February here at CAR Online. Both are based on the platform of the luxo-cruiser S80 but there's no mistaking the XC70. As well as that chunky black cladding the XC gets standard roof rails, blacked-out side pillars and C-30-style tail lights.
