From Volvo press: Backed by more than 50 years of ongoing refinement and improvement of our estate cars, the Volvo V70 boasts an innovative combination of luxury and versatility and inherits its genes from classics such as the Volvo Duett, Volvo 245 and Volvo 745.
The Volvo V70 has been upgraded with a number of features that further emphasize the company's focus on cars designed around the needs and wishes of people in modern society. The new features include the latest user-friendly Volvo Sensus infotainment system, enhanced technology that makes driving even safer and more comfortable, and refined drivelines that offer higher performance and lower fuel consumption.
The front of the V70 incorporates a soft nose with a black egg-crate grille featuring chrome in the vertical bars. This gives the luxury estate car a different, sportier face. The climbing waistline of the side also contributes to the forward-leaning, dynamic stance, which is further reinforced with the help of the black pillars between the side windows. This together with the chrome moulding around the entire window creates an aura that is luxurious yet sporty at the same time. The Volvo V70 has colour-coded lower body panels as standard. New exterior features in Model Year 2012 are the redesigned headlamps and LED turn indicators integrated into the door mirrors
