Volvo V70 for sale
The Volvo V70, released between 1996 and 2016, was described as an executive car. The name refers to its status, ‘V’ for versatility, and ‘70’ informing its platform size, larger than the Volvo V60 but smaller than the Volvo V90. Better described as a wagon, the large vehicle was the predecessor to Volvo crossovers such as the Volvo XC70. Surviving three-generational redesigns, the Volvo V70 has come with a multitude of variations, engine sizes and even an unreleased plug-in hybrid. For that reason, it is important to check the specifications when finding a used Volvo V70 for sale.
Volvo V70 history
Upon its release, the Volvo V70 entered a longstanding collection of Volvo wagons that dates as far back as the 1940s. Linearly, the Volvo V70 was the predecessor to the Volvo 850 Estate. Volvo claimed a total of 1800 changes made from the former wagon. The most apparent upgrades included a more rounded exterior and a revised front-end. Meanwhile, the equipment throughout the vehicle received significant upgrades taking the wagon into the mid-90s, including remote locking and electronically adjustable mirrors.
Late Volvo V70 models
The third and final generation of the Volvo V70 was launched in 2008 and ran until discontinuation in North America in 2011. Sharing a platform with the Volvo S80sedan, the vehicles shared many elements and stylings. Unlike previous versions of the Volvo V70, the third generation offered four and six-cylinder engine options. Additionally, the high-performance variants were discontinued for the new generation, meaning the vehicle was no longer available in all-wheel drive. The most significant difference of the late Volvo V70 models was the additional 55-litre cargo space and added rear-seat legroom.
