VOLVO S70 (1996-2000)

When 1996 was coming to an end, a new Volvo model was introduced: the Volvo S70.


The Volvo S70 was developed from the successful 850 models, which had been on the market since 1991.


The exterior of the new S70 showed softer styling than its predecessor, but still carried a strong Volvo identity. Inside the car, the dashboard was new as was most of the interior. In the area of safety a number of improvements were made.
