V70: What's new


For immediate release


V70 - The security of all-wheel-drive returns to North America's most popular premium wagon with the availability of a special-order V70 AWD. Utilizing the proven viscous coupling system from the Cross Country, the V70 AWD enjoys slightly higher ground clearance than the standard V70. Distinctive alloy wheels, power from the proven 5-cylinder 2.4 litre engine with low pressure turbocharger, and 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with Geartronic sequential shifting make the V70 AWD a compelling package. Upgraded standard equipment on all V70 models and new available features add value to one of the most popular Volvo automobiles. Major technical specifications remain the same.

  • Revised Volvo Navigation System with DVD (Jan. '02)
  • Revised engine management system in 2.4 and T5
  • Enhanced traction control in STC and TRACS systems
  • Available Family Package with dual child booster seats and folding table
  • Standard CD player


Volvo automobiles are sold and serviced by 42 retailers in major markets across Canada.
