The Volvo V70 is now in its third generation, since 2007, with the previous second generation being introduced in 2000. However, my review is of the first generation car which ran from 1997 to 2000 (roughly P to W registrations) and is mainly based on my experience with a 1999 model. My apologies for the length of this review; there really is a lot I could say about this car. As I understand it the V stands for "versatile", which means an estate car to you or me, and the 70 designation shows it is the largest of the current range of Volvo estates, though it is not quite as big as the earlier 960 (later renamed V90) model. Smaller Volvo estates are ... Read the complete review

Blasting at high speed in a Volvo estate isn't the joke it was. The T5 carried on when the 850's replacement, the V70 arrived, and now Volvo has released the R versions with 250bhp in manual guise and 240bhp in auto. They come superbly equipped, with leather, air-con and an eight-speaker CD stereo... but they're not cheap. The saloon's rear end is old-fashioned whereas the estate looks right from every angle. It looks mean too, crouching on lowered suspension and 17-inch alloy wheels. The V70R shifts, racing from 0-62mph in 6.7secs for the front-wheel drive and 7.3secs for the four-wheel drive. Turbo lag is minimal and ... Read the complete review

I have become a fan of the Volvo brand of late. The over all sense of intelligence wrapped up in the beautiful bodies that Volvo now wrap their cars in is exceedingly appealling. I explored a new V70 one day and I decided that one day, if given the chance, I might actually part with a lot of cash for one. I don't believe that Volvos are, as yet, of the same all encompasing excellence of BMWs but they are getting closer and closer. They have a different kind of appeal to them. BM's shout of mass kudos and they may deserve it but Volvos say more (positively) about their owners. They don't say "I'm a touch arrogant, and my car is better than yours" like BMWs, or most German Read the complete review

I have owned a Volvo V70 for around 2 years now and have been very pleased with it. I have not experienced any problems with this car and would recommend it to anyone. On paper this is one of the worlds safest and most efficient cars. The car has front and side airbags as well as standard crumple zones. The petrol mileage is good and with its 5 cylinder, low-pressure turbo charged engine the car provides very good power. The car is great for room; I have a family of 4 and there is plenty of leg room. I also have 4 dogs and the boot is spacious enough for them and some of the luggage when we go away. The car drives and handles brilliantly and ... Read the complete review

The Volvo V70 is a really solid car which is really safe and secure. A drive in one of these will really convince you. Make sure you get one with the larger engines though, it really is a heavy car. The ones with leather seats really are very comfortable and the heated seats are a treat in the winter. They are not cars for the slipper brigade anymore and they look quite agressive on the road. They also do not suffer from the BeeM stigma so should be left alone by vandels. ... Read the complete review
