Spy Shots: 2008 Volvo XC70
Major changes over the previous car include the large rear brake lights that dominate the tail-end, and a much smoother look overall. The bumpers and side-cladding have also grown and covers much more of the car, while the front end styling is sharper with larger headlamps and a longer bonnet. Otherwise the car shares much in common with the S80 on which it’s based.
Engine options will also be shared with the S80, which means there will be a range-topping model equipped with the 315hp V8 combined with AWD. Another option is an E85 powered 2L four-cylinder that will develop roughly 200hp and go head-to-head with Saab’s upcoming BioPower range of cars. Expect some diesel variants plus a possible 370hp performance R-version powered by a 4.4L V8. Follow the jump for more information plus full sized images.
