For 2009 enhancements to the Volvo XC70 premium estate include several new additions to the SE Lux specification including Active Bending Lights, heated washer nozzles, Load Compensating Suspension and chronograph instrument dials.
The Volvo XC70 also receives an updated RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment system) which now features larger eight-inch flat-screen monitors built into the front seat headrests. A digital TV option is also available, which enables passengers to watch Freeview channels as well as providing a cardslot that can be used for subscription services. Other RSE features include an integrated DVD player, wireless headphones and remote control. An extra socket means it is possible to connect an additional DVD player or video game so the two screens can then be used independently. The RSE system is available for £1,350 RRP and the additional digital TV option is £400 RRP.
A new Driver Support Pack is also now available which includes BLIS (Blind Spot Information System), ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) with Distance Alert and Collision Warning with Auto Brake and LDW (Lane Departure Warning), with DAC (Driver Alert Control) and has a recommended retail price of £1,500. A Security Pack has also been introduced with a retail price of £600. The pack features PCC (Personal Car Communicator) with Heartbeat Sensor and Keyless Drive and 360o laminated windows.
Again, prices are stable, with the range starting at £31,035 OTR for the D5 SE Manual.Published 14 May 2008
