XC70 Series III
1 Dec 2007
A SMALLER crossover cousin to the dedicated XC90 SUV, the third-generation XC70 continues to be based on the V70 passenger wagon.
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.
