Volvo V70 Models and V70 History

The Volvo V70 wagon boasted updated suspension, improved side-impact airbags, a new interior and all-wheel-drive engine options in 1998. Rounding out the changes for 1999 were updated safety features, a better braking system (four channel ABS), head-protection for side-impact airbags, stability and traction control (offered as standard features), and updates to the interior and exterior. An improved engine, a brand new and more effective transmission and trim updates graced the 2000 V70. Completely redesigned for 2001, the V70 flaunted an all-new body style, a new interior and modernized safety features.


In 2002, emergency BrakeAssist and updated traction control were the two largest changes. The V70R performance wagon debuted in 2003, offering a sport-tuned advantage over other trim levels. 2004-2006 comprised only of minor trim level adjustments. A tire-pressure monitoring system, integrated turn signals on side mirrors, aluminum trim accents and updated optional packages were the only changes in store for 2007. Redesigned in 2008, the V70 now offered a six-cylinder engine. Fog lights and Bluetooth integration were made standard in 2009. No major changes were in store for 2010.
