Ownership cost

What used Volvo V70 estate will I get for my budget?

Prices for a Volvo V70 start out at around £2500, but for that you'll get an early example with a mileage well into six figures. We'd suggest that you increase your budget to beyond £4000 to get something with under 100,000 miles on it and a full service history. 

A major facelift (by Volvo standards) happened in 2012, and you'll need around £10,000 for an example from this year with and an average number of miles on it. Late 2015 and 2016 cars from a franchised Volvo dealer can be found for £14,500.

Insurance costs are reasonable, with all but the T5 engine in R-Design trim sitting in insurance groups 20-29. Pick a sporty version, however, and you're looking at group 33. Diesels will be the least expensive to tax (a few are even free) but most of the petrols sit in the highest band. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information. 

Servicing costs aren't cheap, but go with a franchised dealer and you're unlikely to be disappointed. Volvo dealers have a good reputation for looking after customers.
