The front-wheel drive, five-passenger V70 is powered by a 235 hp, 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission. This vehicle features a bold new front design and raised hood while still maintaining the basic figure of the past V70. Standard safety features include side-impact and side-curtain airbags, traction control, and an electronic stability system. Available options include leather upholstery and active bi-xenon headlights. The Volvo V70 is redesigned for 2008.
