Car reviews - Volvo - XC70 - 5-dr wagon range


Volvo's third-generation XC70 wagon arrives with more style and two new engines

30 Nov 2007

VOLVO has introduced the third generation of its V70-based crossover wagon called the XC70. Vastly outselling the practical V70, the XC70 appeals with its mixture of prestige features, practical interior, rugged looks and limited off-road capability. The new model is fitted with two engines that are new to XC70 in Australia, including a 3.2-litre naturally-aspirated in-line six-cylinder and a 2.4 turbo diesel five-cylinder. It uses a Haldex all-wheel-drive system and all models run a six-speed automatic with a manual-shift mode. The XC70 range starts with a base petrol model at $58,950, rising to $60,950 for the entry-level diesel. A luxury LE petrol model costs $64,950 and a diesel LE costs $66,650.
Model release date: 1 December 2007 to 1 January 2013

Previous model

Volvo XC70

Released: April 2003
Ended: December 2007
Family Tree: XC70

The XC70 started its Australian duty in 1998 as the V70 XC, before being renamed Cross Country and finally XC70 when the car was facelifted in 2003. It was powered by a 2.5-litre turbo five-cylinder with 154kW and 320Nm and a constant all-wheel-drive system. Based on the V70 wagon, the XC70 was a mild crossover compared to larger and heavier SUVs. Until late-2003, the XC70 was Volvo's only crossover vehicle until the big XC90 arrived and became the brand’s best-selling model.
