The Volvo V70 comes with a soft, rounded muzzle, a roof line that extends all the way to the rear of the car and sudden tail section. These lines are an intentional synthesis between distinctive appearance and practical function, creating a very wide and comfortable luggage area. Tail lights follow Volvo’s modern shape and sweep towards the roof panel. The body, thighs and tracks are far wider than the previous V70 model, in order to promote a stronger attitude, ensure driving behavior, and a spacious interior. Thanks to the Volvo powertrain concept based on a transverse in-line engine, the driver’s compartment can be placed far ahead. As a result, the passenger compartment benefits from generous length, offering plenty of space for five passengers and large baggage. Each passenger seat has a flat backrest. The rear seat is divided into 40/60. With the chair folded down, the load compartment floor is completely flat.
Volvo Cars adopts a safety system that includes Preventive and Protective safety from the previous version. Preventive safety is closely related to the nature of driving a car. The Volvo V70 body displays exceptional torsional rigidity and the car has a sturdy chassis, a combination that produces consistent and predictable behavior on the road.
Volvo Cars has developed various information systems designed to help drivers while traveling. One such system is IDIS (Intelligent Driver Information System), which for example suspends phone calls in complicated traffic situations that require undivided driver attention. Safety protection on the Volvo V70 is arranged around a network consisting of exterior and interior safety systems that interact with each other to reduce the risk of passenger injuries due to collisions. The exterior system has the task of distributing and absorbing the incoming collision force so that the passenger compartment remains intact and not damaged as possible. Therefore, the body is built in the form of a metal cage in which all components interact to ensure controlled deformation. The interior security system aims to keep passengers safe in their place and also to reduce the risk of serious injury. To provide the most effective protection possible, Volvo Cars has developed a number of internal systems, such as WHIPS (Whiplash Protection System), SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) and IC (Inflatable Curtain). All are equipped as standard in Volvo V70. What’s more, the five seats are equipped with three-point inertia reel seat belts, pre-tension belts and head restraints. Security as high as possible requires all car occupants to always use their seat belts.
Engine power on the Volvo V70 is a five-cylinder, in-line transverse unit. The five-cylinder engine provides low vibration and smooth operation. Together with large displacement, the five-cylinder configuration provides high torque across the wide band, and thus also fast acceleration and exceptional driving capability in a wide speed range.
The Volvo V70 T5 is the top model, featuring a turbocharger and six-speed gearbox. The engine range also includes a diesel engine with particle filters, and Volvo Bi-Fuel which is optimized for the environment that can be run with methane or gasoline.
The chassis, with spring support at the front and Multilink axle at the rear, is set for convincing and convincing driving stability and alert steering response. The Multilink rear axle is an independent rear suspension system that displays a number of links and is designed to offer a good combination of controlled wheel movement and high driving comfort. Some of these links have the task of giving a certain level of anti-skid steering effect. A long and wide wheelbase, together with a very torsional body, contributes to predictable and controlled driving.
The advanced Volvo DSTC (Dynamic Stability and Traction Control) stability enhancement system is installed as standard. DSTC cuts and helps stabilize the car if it registers a tendency to slip. Active chassis with advanced Four-C technology is available as an option. With this system, the chassis settings are adjusted automatically to suit current driving conditions, thus increasing comfort in handling and driving. Two alternative chassis settings are programmed into the system. With the touch of a button, the driver can change the behavior of the car to suit the driving conditions and personal taste.
The Volvo V70 2.5T AWD has an Volvo electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive system with Instant Traction, for fast and effective traction distribution even when moving on slippery surfaces.
The Volvo V70 is designed and equipped to have as little impact as possible on the global environment and to offer a climate of clean and healthy interior. Low internal friction, efficient combustion and sophisticated exhaust filtration technology produce low emissions. Energy-efficient diesel engines with particle filters produce low carbon dioxide and soot particles. Bi-Fuel cars powered by methane with gasoline as fuel reserves reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 25% compared to cars only gasoline, if methane is extracted from natural gas. When run with biogas, the net greenhouse effect is zero. The engine on the Volvo V70 can be determined optionally with a catalytic radiator layer known as PremAir®. This system converts dangerous ozone to pure oxygen when the car drives it. The biggest benefit in heavy city traffic and in strong sunlight.
The Volvo IAQS (Interior Air Quality System) effectively reduces the number of particles, pollen, gas, and certain odors in the air entering the cabin. All textiles and leather upholstery are certified according to the ÖKO-TEX 100, an international standard that ensures that interior trim is free of allergy and hazardous materials.
