(2002 model shown)

V70

Volvo's mid-size station wagon comes powered in its base form by a 168-horsepower, 2.4-liter five-cylinder engine. The 2.4T version adds a supercharged version that nets 197 horsepower. Both are mated to a choice of a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. While the T5 version is deleted for 2006, the sporty V70R remains in the lineup and packs a 300-horsepower, 2.5-liter in-line-five-cylinder under its hood that can be fitted to either a six-speed manual gearbox or the aforementioned automatic. The V70R also offers a Servotronic power-steering system, suspension upgrades, beefier Brembo brakes, and a newly upgraded Haldex "Instant Traction" all-wheel drive system, A host of standard safety features includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and front-side and head-curtain airbags. For 2006, new 16-inch alloy wheels replace the previously standard 15-inch rims, with 17-inch wheels and tires optional.
