2007 Volvo V70 Review

The Car Connection Expert Review

Volvo’s mid-size station wagon is mostly a carryover for 2007, with the major updates consisting of now-standard electronic stability control, revised outside rearview mirrors with built-in turn indicators and the availability of Active B-Xenon headlights that can be turned up to 15 degrees in either direction for improved night-time visibility. The rear-seat DVD entertainment system may also be ordered as a standalone option instead of as part of a package. The base engine in the V70 is a 2.4-liter five-cylinder rated at 168 horsepower (165 in states withCalifornia emissions requirements). The step-up 2.5-liter turbocharged and intercooled engine in the V70 2.5T is up-rated slightly to 208 horsepower (vs. 197 previously) while the range-topping 300-horsepower 2.5-liter engine found in the high-performance V70R sport wagon remains basically the same as before. Buyers looking for third-row seating should be aware this configuration is no longer available on either the V70 2.4 or the V70 2.5T.

Good solid car. Too expensive to maintain thru the dealer, but I was lucky to find a local garage that has kept the car on the road for the last couple years. The best mpg I can do is just over 25 with long... + More »
