Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
While the exterior look of the 2007 V70 has changed little from its predecessor, traction control and a tire pressure monitoring system are now standard for all models. The V70 has also lost its optional third-row seat and puddle lights.

The V70, Volvo's larger front-wheel-drive wagon, comes in both 2.4 and 2.5T trims. Volvo also offers a smaller V50 wagon and an all-wheel-drive XC70 wagon with certain SUV-like characteristics. A high-performance V70 R wagon is also available.

(Skip to details on the: V70 R)


Exterior
Rounded front corners resemble those of Volvo's S80 sedan, but the rear half retains the straight lines and body profile of a traditional wagon. Clear-lens headlights are installed. The 2.5T wagon has chrome accents inlayed into the color-coordinated front bumper.

Metallic paint is now a stand-alone option, as are several new 17-inch wheel designs that vary between the 2.4 and 2.5T models.

All V70 wagons ride a 108.5-inch wheelbase and measure 185.4 inches long overall. Fog lamps are mounted on the 2.5T wagon. A power moonroof is optional.


Interior
Each V70 seats up to five occupants on two front buckets and a three-place, 60/40-split rear bench seat. Cargo capacity is 37.4 cubic feet with the backseat raised, but that space grows to 71.4 cubic feet when the seats are folded down. A cassette/CD audio system is standard, and Sirius Satellite Radio is optional.

Aluminum accents have been added to the column stalks and steering wheel switches, a...

A cassette/CD audio system is standard, and Sirius Satellite Radio is optional.

Aluminum accents have been added to the column stalks and steering wheel switches, and a Convenience Package adds integrated child seats and a compass for the rearview mirror. A dual-screen rear entertainment system is now a stand-alone option.

Volvo's navigation system and a power passenger's seat are optional on the 2.5T wagon. Rear park assist, leather seats, integrated rear child booster seats and heated front seats also are offered.


Under the Hood
Buyers can choose between two inline-five-cylinder engines in non-R V70s. The 2.4 wagon uses a 168-horsepower 2.4-liter that teams with either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5T model gets a turbocharged 2.5-liter that produces 208 hp and 236 pounds-feet of torque. The 2.5T works only with a five-speed Geartronic automatic. Premium fuel is recommended for both engines.

Safety
Safety features in the V70 include all-disc antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, side-impact and side curtain airbags, and Volvo's Whiplash Protection Seating System. Daytime running lights are standard. Volvo's electronic stability system is newly standard for 2007.

V70 R
Introduced as a 2004 model, the V70 R uses a 300-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-five-cylinder that teams with a six-speed manual gearbox. A six-speed automatic with Geartronic operation became available in 2006. The automatic cuts 0-to-60-mph acceleration time from 7.4 to 6.5 seconds; a manual-shift V70 R reaches 60 mph in a claimed 5.6 seconds.

According to Volvo, the standard Haldex Instant Traction all-wheel-drive system "instantaneously delivers up to 50 percent more torque to the rear axle only when needed."

Rear park assist is available. Volvo also offers a high-performance S60 R sedan with the same drivetrain. New for 2007 are a tire pressure monitoring system, a compass in the rearview mirror, a grocery bag holder and a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area. (Back to top)

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
