XC70 Series III

Volvo logo1 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.
