A History of the Volvo XC70

The Volvo XC70 has a long and rich history, beginning as the Volvo 850 as its first generation model from 1997 until 2000. Then it was renamed as the V70, offering basic vehicle features such as the front- and all-wheel drive station wagon. It became the Volvo XC70 after being marketed as a Cross Country XC. Peter Horbury designed the second generation that was released in 2000 and manufactured in 2007. This time around, the vehicle boasted of a larger width and height by 4cm, a longer wheel based by 5cm, greater cargo volume, and an all-wheel drive variant. In 2008, the third generation or V70 featured the Ford EUCD platform, while the XC70 was the brand’s wheel drive model.

 

The second generation released in 2000 had similarities to the S60 sedan, featuring a body that had a 70 percent larger rigidity compared to the first generation. The interior included raised seating in the second row and support in the passenger side for accessories such as a bag holder, rear seat table, waste basket, and other additions that car owners may eventually need for long term use. Other added interior inclusions were the pen holder and coat hook in the glove compartment. The design of this generation, according to Horbury, is one that marries the sports car style with the limits of the wagon back vehicle.
