New Volvo V70 and XC70: prices and trims

19 June 2007

Volvo has released prices for its new V70 estate and off-road XC70 models.

The estate ranges from £26,495 to £38,280, while the XC70 starts at £31,035, rising to £36,200.

The big estate comes with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines, and there will be three trims - SE, SE Lux and SE Sport. All models come with the alloy wheels, roof rails and a posh sound system.

SE Sport cars cost £2850 more than standard models and have speed-dependent power steering and Volvo's Four-C active chassis system, where the shock absorbers automatically adjust to suit driving conditions. These cars also have bigger alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and ventilated leather seats.

SE Lux is £2750 more than SE and focuses on comfort - you'll find leather and wooden trim, and power front seats, as well as the active chassis system.

There are various option packs on offer, too, including a family pack that has integrated child booster cushions which can be set at two heights - a world first, according to Volvo.

The lower setting is for children between 115cm and 140cm tall and weighing 22-36kg, while the upper setting is designed for children between 95cm and 129cm tall and weighing 15-25kg.

The integrated booster seat is accompanied by seatbelts that restrain the child with just the right amount of force in an accident, and curtain airbags that stretch back the length of the cabin.
