The V70-based XC70 station wagon is an SUV pretender, styled with a slightly higher ride height to appeal to SUV intenders. It's powered by a turbocharged, 2.5-liter in-line-five-cylinder engine that generates 208 horsepower and drives all four wheels via a six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission that can be shifted through the gears manually. For 2006 the XC70 includes a newly upgraded Haldex "Instant Traction" all-wheel drive system. Four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and front-side and side-curtain airbags are standard, along with dual-zone air conditioning, a CD stereo, cruise control, keyless entry, a leather wrapped tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and alloy wheels. Options include Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, power leather seats, a power moonroof, navigation system, integrated child seats, and an adjustable "Four-C" chassis that allows the driver to switch from "comfort" to "sport" ride and handling settings.
