2012 Volvo XC70
The new Volvo XC70 is more refined than ever. The XC70 is a sophisticated and elegant car for an active urban life. Come the weekend and it transforms into a rugged partner for all kinds of exciting adventures.

The Volvo XC70 has been upgraded with a number of features including the latest user-friendly Volvo Sensus infotainment system, enhanced technology that makes driving even safer and more comfortable, and refined drivelines that offer higher performance and lower fuel consumption.

The model has a unique soft nose. This is characterised by a larger grille and headlamps. The dark-coloured body panels provide an exclusive, rugged impression, clearly signalling the car’s dynamic capabilities. Moving to the side, the contrasting protective sections are supplemented with a chrome moulding at the bottom of the doors. The pronounced wheel housings are another design feature, contributing to the capable appearance. A number of design elements, like the framed side windows and the distinct shoulders, create a genuine estate car profile.

The upgraded versions of the Volvo V70 features sharpened versions of the five-cylinder D5 and D3 turbodiesels.
In the D5 engine Volvo Cars’ engine experts have boosting performance and torque from 205 hp/420 Nm to 215 hp and 440 Nm while at the same time reducing fuel consumption by eight percent. The quest for better driveability combined with lower fuel consumption and less environmental impact has led to increased focus on internal friction inside the engine.

The D3 remains at 163 hp and 400 Nm. However, the two-litre diesel engine’s driveability is now far improved thanks to fine-tuning of the turbocharger. This is an excellent example of the fact that efficiency enhancement in modern combustion engines is now taking place at microscopic levels. There is also a DRIVe version of the D3, with 163 hp and 420 Nm, a manual and automatic version (engine D5244T17).

Fuel consumption in the Volvo XC70 D5 is 5.6 l/100 km (149 g/km) in the AWD version with manual gearbox and 6.8 l/100 km (179 g/km) with the automatic. The corresponding figures for the D3 engine with FWD and manual gearbox is 5,5 l/100 km (144 g/km) in the Volvo XC70 (DRIVe version).

Volvo V70 also comes with a range of petrol engines. The six-cylinder, turbocharged T6 has a displacement of 3.0 litres sharper performance, thanks mainly to a reduction in internal friction. It offers 304 hp and no less than 440 Nm of torque. Maximum torque is achieved between 2100 and 4200 revs. This results in rapid acceleration and smooth driving properties. All-Wheel Drive is fitted as standard.
