They have been changed through continuous refinement ever since 1953 when Volvo launched the PV 445. What was originally an out-and-out practical and spacious car has been continuously developed and now has exclusive comfort and dynamic driving properties that put it in the same class as large luxurious sedan models. What is more, the all-new Volvo V70 takes a huge step forward in the field of intelligent functionality.

The front of the all-new V70 incorporates a unique soft nose with a black egg-crate grille featuring chrome in the vertical bars. This gives the luxury estate car a different, sportier face. The climbing waistline of the side also contributes to the forward-leaning, dynamic stance, which is further reinforced with the help of the black pillars between the side windows.

From the side the tailgate's upper section has a sportier, more forward-leaning stance. At the rear, the Volvo name on the tailgate features more pronounced lettering with wider spacing than before. A new feature that was first shown on the XC60 Concept in Detroit this year. Viewed from behind, the tailgate makes a strong visual link with the new C30. All the lights above the waistline, both at the side and the high-mounted third brake light, are LED brake lights. The fixed position lights on the body side take on an added role as supplementary brake lights if the cargo is so large that the driver has to drive with the tailgate secured partly open. Another smart detail is that the tailgate's glass window goes further down at the sides to give the driver added rearward visibility.

The all-new V70 is available in 16 different exterior colours, two of which are entirely new. The new liveries, Seashell and Glacier Blue, were developed to emphasise the estate car's sportier and more luxurious aura. Inside the car there are six upholsteries in three colours. In addition to Sandstone Beige and Anthracite Black, there is a Cranberry Red highlight colour where the red detailing on the seats and door panels contrasts elegantly with the rest of the black trim.

The interior of the all-new V70 is an example of Scandinavian design at its best. Every little detail has been designed with a one hundred percent focus on both clean form and intelligent functionality. Comfort in the front seat features superb seats and ergonomically designed instruments - including an elegant, super-slim centre stack and an audio system of absolute world class. The integrated dual child booster cushions can be adjusted in two steps and the 40/20/40-split rear seat has integrated seat belts. The lightweight design of the rear backrest and the simple folding mechanism are other examples of improved functionality for passengers.

In the all-new V70, everything and everyone rides in first class. Even the luggage compartment and all its options and accessories have been designed to meet the very highest demands on luxury and intelligent functionality. Among the smart details in the luggage compartment is a storage space under the floor which is locked when the tailgate is shut. A power tailgate is an option and among the range of accessories are a sliding load floor and a smart storage system with side rails and sliding load hooks that can be tailored to meet the owner's individual needs.
