  • Best in class residual value predictions
  • ‘Freedom’ test drives around the UK ahead of showroom launch

Volvo Car UK announces class leading residual values for its all-new Volvo V70 and XC70 premium estate* models, plus the opportunity to test drive the cars before they make their official showroom debut in September.

The all-new Volvo V70 and XC70 have recently been awarded ‘best in class’ future residual values by industry experts.  CAP, which predicts future used values for the motor industry and Lex, the UK’s largest leasing company have both issued figures predicting that the all-new Volvo V70 and XC70 will be worth more than their closest rivals in the used car market.

After three years and 60,000 miles both CAP and Lex forecast the Volvo V70 D5 SE will be worth a class-leading 49% (£13,600) of its original OTR price of £27,995.  That puts it 5% ahead of rival BMW 525dSE and 8% ahead of the Audi A6 2.7TDi SE.  CAP has also put the all-new Volvo XC70 ahead of rivals predicting that it will be worth 49% (£15,100) of its value after three years and Lex forecasting a value of 48%.

“The residual value forecasts reflect the excellent used car prices the current estates have achieved, together with an increase in value because of the significant step-up in style, driving dynamics, functionality and quality evident in the all-new Volvo V70 and XC70,” commented Volvo Car UK’s corporate sales and leasing manager, John Wallace.

To satisfy customer demand for early test drives, Volvo is hosting a series of Freedom events which will be taking place every weekend throughout August at various exclusive locations throughout the country*.  These free-of-charge events enable potential customers to get behind the wheel of the all-new Volvo V70 and XC70 with a series of 30 minute unaccompanied test drives.
