Volvo Cars model line for 2002 V70: What's new


For immediate release




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 addition of AWD brings a slightly higher ground clearance than the standard V70. Distinctive alloy wheels, power from the proven 5-cylinder 2.4 liter 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.
