Description

New Volvo XC70

The XC70 is a crossover version of the V70 estate, adding a raised height and good off-road ability, plus ample boot space and a plush interior

Appearance

The XC70 takes the V70 and adds some extra functionality, with a raised suspension and optional four-wheel drive. Asides from this, it looks quite similar to its predecessor, having the long nose and stylish rear-end that also defines the V70 model; the only major difference is the black cladding that runs along the side of the vehicle, providing added protection against ragged terrain. Volvo seating is among the best in the sector, and the XC70 doesn’t disappoint either. The perfectly-cushioned seats make it easy to lounge in and offer ample adjustment, whilst the dashboard and interior is made from high-quality materials. Much like the V70, interior space is generous, and the fully extended boot space can swallow a gargantuan 1600 litres of items.

Performance

The Volvo brand is well-known for its competent, long-distance cruising abilities, but the added functionality of the XC70 allows it to tackle more than just motorways. Although it’s not quite a fully-fledged off-roader, the ground clearance and four-wheel drive on offer make allow you to get out of many difficult situations. Back on the road, the XC70 takes potholes in its stride, thanks to an absorbent suspension. All of the engines available for the XC70 come with plenty of power, which makes moving across difficult terrain somewhat easier. The two D4 and D5 engines both have plenty of mid-range torque, and can lug passengers and their belongings around without trouble. Alloy wheels, a CD player, climate control, DAB radio, Bluetooth and air conditioning are standard on the XC70, whilst the premium SE Lux models include equipment such as xenon headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Safety & Economy

Anti-whiplash, city safety and traction control, as well as plenty of airbags, are present to help aid in the event of collisions.

Conclusion

Perfect for Executive and Families Depreciation for the XC70 is above average, due to its desirability and practicality. Its cheap economy is also great, especially considering its off-road abilities.
