The XC70 generates an irresistible attraction for those seeking the traditional Volvo wagon virtues of comfort, safety and utility plus the sporty style, increased ground clearance and charisma of a contemporary crossover. As a pioneer, innovator and leader in the premium wagon segment, Volvo blazed a new trail when it introduced this concept as the original first-generation "Cross Country" more than 15 years ago.
With the XC70, buyers can select a drivetrain that meets their needs. The XC70 3.2 models are equipped with standard front-wheel drive while Volvo's signature All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction is available as an option on any 3.2 trim level, providing the best possible grip in all situations. The sporty XC70 T6 features standard AWD. Hill Descent Control (HDC), included on XC70s with AWD, uses the vehicle's brakes and engine torque to crawl in bottom gear on steep downhill slopes.
The XC70's Volvo Sensus system has been enhanced for 2013. Standard on all models, Sensus lets drivers manage information from the audio unit, navigation system (if equipped) and other functions, displaying them onto a seven-inch high-definition color monitor. Steering-wheel-mounted scroll functionality is increased for more intuitive and consistent flow of information including Radio Media, "TEL," "SAT" and "NAV" functions.
Introduced last year, Volvo's trim level strategy gives customers more choices to select vehicles equipped exactly the way they desire. The XC70 3.2 is available in base, Premier, Premier Plus and Platinum trims while the T6 AWD comes in base, Premier Plus and Platinum trims.
Keyless Drive with Personal Car Communicator (PCC) and an accessory prep cable are added to the 3.2 Premier content for 2013. Keyless Drive becomes standard equipment on the T6 AWD.
A six-speed "Geartronic" transmission that lets the driver select fully automatic operation or shift manually when desired is standard on all XC70s. A new gearshift knob includes illuminated drive modes for added convenience. A Sport Mode makes its debut exclusively on T6 AWD models to enhance the sporty driving character.
