Which used Volvo XC70 4x4 should I buy?

For most of its life, the Volvo XC70 had a simple choice of two engines, and choosing between them was equally simple: diesel every time.

Originally, the only diesel was a 163bhp D5, but when its power was uprated to 185bhp in July 2005, a new 2.4-litre diesel (confusingly, also with 163bhp) joined the range. However, the less powerful (and less economical) 2.4 lasted only a year, so the simple advice is to always buy a D5.
