Four major models comprise the Volvo 70 series of wagons: the V70 2.4, the 2.5T, the V70R, and the XC70 Cross Country. The V70 2.4 is powered by a 2.4-liter five-cylinder engine that develops 168 horsepower and drives the front wheels. It comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission. A five-speed automatic is optional. The V70 2.5T has more power, using light-pressure turbocharging with intercooling to coax 208 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque from the same basic engine. The 2.5T comes standard with Volvo's Geartronic automatic transmission. The V70R gets a turbocharged, twin-intercooled 300-horsepower version of the 2.3-liter engine, featuring bigger brakes with four-piston Brembo calibers, a six-speed close-ratio gearbox, and the technically advanced Four-C active suspension system. The XC70 Cross Country is powered by the same turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-5 engine as the 2.5T, and comes standard with the Geartronic automatic transmission.For 2006, the Volvo V70 model lineup gets minor changes.
