The Volvo XC70 has been given a re-work for 2013 to bring it up to date with a more contemporary look.
The XC70 is all-wheel-drive version of the popular V70 designed to cross the city and yet be quite at home in the country. Revisions include a front grille with a bold, wider proportion, a new bigger Volvo Ironmark Badge, and details such as the Daytime Running Lights and added matte silver touches. The XC70 can now be equipped with 19” wheels that promosise as good a ride as the smaller alloys.
The protective under ware has been modified with the black body-cladding below the belt line now extending to surround the front fog lights giving them a purposeful, functional feel. The rear lights have also been redesigned.
The XC70 engines have been tweaked to improve CO2 emissions and lower fuel consumption – for example the automatic D3 (136 hp) and D4 (163 hp) versions of the Volvo XC70 now have CO2 emissions of 130 g/km (57.6mpg).Published 23 February 2013
