2005 Volvo XC70 OverviewVolvo's flagship 70 series wagons have been further refined for 2005, and these superb vehicles are better than ever.Mild styling revisions freshen their appearance.The 70 series represents a range of vehicles offering everything from comfortable sophistication to off-highway capability to high-performance barnstormer.
The Volvo XC70 Cross Country can be a great substitute for a sport-utility as we found out on rough, rock-strewn trails in the Baja.The Cross Country boasts an elevated chassis for ground clearance, no-dent body armor to brush aside trail debris, and all-wheel-drive traction for slippery conditions.Yet it offers the smooth ride and agile handling of a luxury car, while coddling occupants in a luxurious leather cabin.
The Volvo V70 2.4 offers a smoother ride and front-wheel drive.The V70 T5 kicks it up a notch with sharper handling with the refined demeanor of a European luxury sedan; the T5 gets more power, sportier handling and other improvements for 2005.If that isn't enough for you, there's the V70R, a high-performance model with big Brembo brakes and a 300-horsepower engine.
The V70 and XC70 wagons are based on the same platform as Volvo's ultra-smooth flagship sedan, the S80.Their interiors are elegant and well designed.All are practical wagons with an adaptable seating arrangement and a cavernous cargo compartment complete with tie-down hooks and other useful accessories.Unlike many SUVs, the cargo floor is flat when all the seats are folded.
Safety is what made Volvo famous and the 70 series is no exception: Occupants are shielded by a safety-cell structure and active seats designed to prevent whiplash injuries.Airbags are positioned ahead, beside and above.Responsive steering, electronic brake enhancements, and optional traction control are designed to help drivers avoid accidents in the first place.
