XC70 was born to provide a concept that was stronger than before. Volvo is a powerful and flexible car designed to increase freedom of movement and demanding conditions.
Equipped with All-Wheel Drive features that are electronically controlled. The XC70 has the ability to drive the road very poorly, even when pulling horse carriages or boat trailers.
Guided by Cross Country – a five-door estate car that offers increased flexibility. It has the same version of the V70, with a rounded muzzle with a soft, straight roof that extends all the way to the back of the car and the sudden tail section. However, higher ground clearance, larger tires and specially designed panels and protectors provide a tough XC profile model. The grid is also unique for the Volvo XC70. Tail lights follow Volvo’s modern shape and sweep towards the roof panel. The body, thighs and tracks are much wider than the previous XC model, to promote a stronger, more convincing attitude to driving 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 seats on the Volvo XC70 have a three-way split feature for maximum flexibility. With the chair folded down, the load compartment floor is completely flat.
For volvo security issues it never messes around. Volvo Cars adopts a holistic view of safety that includes Preventive and Protective safety. Preventive safety is closely related to the nature of driving a car. The Volvo XC70 body displays exceptional torsional rigidity and this car has a sturdy chassis, a combination that produces consistent and predictable behavior on the road (see also under “Powertrain and Chassis”).
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 XC70 is arranged around a network consisting of exterior and interior safety systems that interact with each other to reduce the risk of passenger injury during a collision. 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 the Volvo XC70. 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.
Although the Engine on the Volvo XC70 is a five-cylinder in-line unit, mounted transversely. 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 engine range on the Volvo XC70 includes two turbocharged engines – one driven by gasoline and featuring a lightweight turbo pressure, and another Volvo advanced D5 turbodiesel with particle filters.
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. There is extra high ground clearance to increase the ability to get-you-there. The Volvo XC70 has a Volvo electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive system with Instant Traction for fast and effective traction distribution even when moving on slippery surfaces.
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.
Volvo XC70 exhaust gas emissions are designed and equipped to have the least impact on the global environment and to offer a clean and healthy interior climate. 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.
The engine on the Volvo XC70 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.
