Wasn't the Audi diesel engine in the first gen V70 a V6?

Oh and I hope that soon they'll realise their error and that they'll put the V8 under the V70's bonnet...

i dont expect the R models to take on the V8 yet. i think theyre reserving those for the range topping S80 and XC90.

I know for sure that it was a Inline 5.
It came from the 1994-1997 Audi A6. From 1997 till 2001 Audi used a 2.5l V6 for their own A6.

All first an second gen. V70 used 5 cylinders.

It's a great car
I think they'd rather use a turbo I-5 than a V8 but thats just me.
Or they could compremise the two and use a turbo V8

Didn't know it. Thanks for clarifying that up.

You're missing the flagship model from the Classic V70 range - the 2.4 AWD R
