Volvo XC90

All-New Volvo C70 coupe/convertible

With a unique three-piece folding metal roof that turns it from a sleek coupe to a stylish convertible in less than 30 seconds, the all-new Volvo C70 is two cars in one and has been turning heads since its launch earlier this year. For 2007, SE and SE Lux models benefit from an Aux input socket for i-Pod/MP3 player with WMA compatibility.

Sport, SE and SE Lux trim levels offer a generous mix of style and comfort, while the five-cylinder 2.4i (170PS) and T5 (220PS) are now joined by Volvo’s D5 (180PS) turbodiesel for 2007 models. Prices range from £26,225 to £33,250 (on the road).

2007 Volvo S60 sports saloon

The 2007 Volvo S60 benefits from a number of changes and is also available with three years’ free servicing and insurance*, plus (typical) 5.9 per cent APR finance through Volvo Car Finance*.

The most noticeable change for the 2007 model Volvo S60 is its revised ride and handling thanks to a new Dynamic chassis with revised front and rear springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, plus solid bushing. Sport models feature a revised Sport chassis with better body control, while the new SE Sport model has Volvo’s active Four-C chassis as standard.

Subtle exterior enhancements include larger door mirrors with integrated turn indicators, updated and sportier lower front spoiler and new front grille with wider chrome surround large Volvo Iron mark badge. On the inside, all models benefit from satin chrome inlays on air-vents, column stalks and between steering wheel remote control switches, a Sports steering wheel with perforated leather and silver insert, plus Imola sports leather upholstery with two tone colours. Active Bi-xenon headlights are now optional with a facility to change the headlight pattern for driving in mainland Europe, plus Volvo's BLIS (Blind Spot Information System).

All 2007 S60 models have improved specifications, with cruise control now standard on S models, while the Sport models gain chronograph instrument dials, speed dependent power steering, leather sports steering wheel and sports spaceball gear knob.

The new SE Sport trim level has all the new Sport features with the leather upholstery and other luxuries of the SE model plus new Imola sports leather upholstery, Volvo’s Active Four-C chassis and larger 18in alloy wheels. There is also a new SE Lux trim level with pleasurable extras over the SE model such as Volvo’s 13-speaker Premium Sound audio system, rear park assist, Sovereign Hide soft leather upholstery, Bi-xenon headlights and power driver and passenger seats.

For most models, prices have only increased by a modest £100, which now range from £20,370 (2.0T S 180PS) to £29,645 (T5 SE Lux 260PS) with the high-performance 300PS S60 R Geartronic still topping the range at £36,315 (on the road).

Volvo V70 estate

Two new high specification models, the SE Sport and SE Lux are joining the V70 range above the S, Sport and SE models. V70 models registered between 1 July and 30 September 2006 are eligible for a free rear seat entertainment system* and available with typical 5.9% APR finance when purchased through Volvo Car Finance*.

The V70 Sport model gains extra touches such as a leather sports steering wheel and sport spaceball gear knob, speed dependent power steering and chronograph instrument dials, while the new SE Sport takes all the additional comforts of the SE model and adds the Sport features plus a rear spoiler, larger 18in alloy wheels and Volvo's active Four-C chassis.
