The V70's residual values are weaker than those of the best in class and list prices are high, which affects leasing rates. The biggest petrol engine attracts the highest benefit-in-kind taxation. All V70s have a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty. Service intervals have been extended on all petrol models from 12,000 to 18,000 miles.
Volvo V70 quality & reliability
The 850 model (one of this car's predecessors) was hailed as the most reliable Volvo yet, and the V70 is living up to those high standards. The cabin and load bay are built to last a lifetime of hard use, and the engines are mechanically very rugged. The materials used inside are also classy and durable.
Volvo V70 safety & security
Volvo continues to live up to its well deserved reputation for safety. The company's anti-whiplash and side-impact protection systems are standard across the range, and traction control is fitted on most models. The V70's anti-theft measures could not keep our attack-testers out, but the immobiliser stopped them driving the car away. An optional Blind Spot Information System is available to alert you to cars nearby.
