For its last 6 months of production, the V70 range has been refined to offer S, SE and Special Edition Sport models only, with 2.4 170PS petrol and 2.4D diesel in both manual and geartronic, along with a 2.5T petrol which is available in geartronic SE spec only. The 300PS V70 R performance estate model is no longer available. Again, prices have been held across the range, starting at £23,840 for the 2.4S, with a minor £3 increase on some models.Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 received a major exterior and interior design refresh last year and 2006 also saw the introduction of the SE Sport model, offering a Sports Chassis and unique Sports styling. For the 2008 model year, the XC90 benefits from three new exterior colours and prices held across the range, with a minor £5 increase on some models. The range starts with the XC90 D5 S at £32,845 OTR.Volvo C30 SportsCoupe
Volvo’s latest model, the Volvo C30, benefits from a number of new features. Adding to the extensive engine choice is a 1.8 Flexifuel engine; the T5 version also enjoys a 10PS power upgrade, taking its performance to 230PS and, later this year, a 180PS D5 Euro V compliant engine with six-speed manual transmission will be available. New safety features have also been added - hazard lights will automatically be activated if any airbag is deployed and a new EBL (Emergency Brake Light) function flashes all three brake lights five times a second to warn following drivers during an emergency braking manoeuvre. For the exterior, three new colours are available and the Volvo iron mark badge has increased in size by 50 per cent on the front grille. Inside, the RTI navigation system is now on hard disk for faster function and a hard load cover is now available as a £150 option.Volvo C70 coupe convertible
The Volvo C70 benefits from a number of interior enhancements, adding to the car’s ‘two in one’ folding hard top appeal. Volvo’s iconic ‘floating’ centre stack has revised controls and is complemented by a multi-function centre tunnel storage area, a more compact handbrake design, and a new armrest that’s longer and further forward for greater driver comfort as well as offering a larger storage area. Other changes include more dynamically styled instrument panels for the T5 and D5 models and a new hard drive-based RTI road traffic information and satellite navigation system. Style choices are widened with four new exterior colours and a new matt real wood interior inlay, called Nordic Light Oak.
Engine changes comprise a 10PS increase in power for the T5 engine, taking performance to 230PS and a Euro V compliant D5 engine with manual transmission which will be available later in the year. Also, a new entry-level model has been introduced, the 2.4i S priced at just £25,750 OTR. Prices have been held for the SE Lux models, with £275 increase on SE and Sport specification.
