Volvo Car Group has been creating wagons since 1953, when the 'two cars in one' Volvo Duett was launched. Six decades on, the new Volvo V70 carries on the tradition of combining form and function beautifully. A number of new exterior design cues reinforce the sophisticated contemporary presence of the iconic estate car.
The new V70 features the groundbreaking Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with full auto brake - and fuel consumption is down to class-leading 4.2 l/100 km (109 g CO2 per km) in the most efficient D2 version.
The updated, refined design emphasises the elegant, contemporary presence of the V70. The front grille is wider and added chrome touches give the car a more upmarket and luxurious feel, while the completely redesigned bumper and tail lights have created a more road-hugging and elegant stance.
This ultimate, spacious family car offers first-class comfort and sophistication combined with an impressive 575 litres of load space.
The rear seats can be folded down in three 40/20/40 segments, giving more options to configure the space. With all of the rear seats folded flat, the load space grows to a cavernous 1,600 litres. The power-operated tailgate, operated remotely via the key fob or the dashboard, is another human-centric detail.
The rear seat can integrate double two-stage child seats - with one simple movement, booster cushions pop up from the seat giving a comfortable and safe ride height for children from the age of three and upwards.
Heated steering wheels are also available for additional driver comfort in colder weather.
Volvo's reputation as the market leader in safety innovation is well deserved and the new Volvo V70 is available with a number of these safety innovations. IntelliSafe is an important part of the driver-centric approach in the V70. For example, the V70 offers the new Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection technology with full auto brake, which scans the area ahead of the car, and if a collision is imminent, the V70 will apply the brakes automatically. The range of safety features also include an upgraded City Safety system, Road Sign Information displayed in the instrument panel, Active High Beam Control, Volvo On Call combined with Bluetooth, and crumple zones made using different grades of steel.
