The V70 is one of the carmaker's better known cars and it's also one of the most stylish estates available continuing a long trend of well-designed and well-made cars from Volvo. As usual, the V70 is packed with safety equipment and it offers versatility and practicality in one impressive package. In addition to being well-designed, the V70 is also one of the most reliable cars on sale today and it makes for an excellent family car.
The latest addition to the impressive engine line-up for the V70 is the new D4 2.0 litre diesel unit which will return around 74 mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 99g/km which, under current rules, makes it exempt from road tax. The D2 engine should return 67 mpg with emissions of 111g/km and the D3 has similar figures. The D5 has more power and will return around 59 mpg. All of the diesel engines in the V70 line-up are excellent and strong performers, particularly at high speed.
This means that the V70 is one of the best cars for travelling long distances in thanks to its comfort and excellent interior. The suspension is also ideally suited for motorways and the cabin is very quiet thanks to the high levels of insulation. The interior is extremely well designed and the floating dashboard is a novel addition. The boot size measures 575 litres which will expand to a more impressive 1,600 litres with the rear seats folded flat and there's also a range of additions to help keep luggage and payload in place. As usual, the middle seat in the rear row converts nicely into a booster seat for small children. The V70 is also, unsurprisingly, one of the safest vehicles in its class having scored five stars in the Euro NCAP crash tests. There's also a lot of safety equipment on-board including a system to detect an imminent collision and a wide range of airbags.
Around town the V70 is a decent performer with good handling and the suspension deals very nicely with potholes and or off-road though it impresses more out on the motorways at speed. To help the V70 be more attractive to buyers in this sector, it's packed with lots of equipment as standard including Bluetooth connectivity, climate control and satnav. Other models also get leather seats, roof rails and a powered driver's seat. Essentially, the V70 makes for a practical choice for anyone looking for a comfortable and safe estate which has lots of space and some good design ideas on board and which also provides a sterling performance over long distances.
