Volvo XC70 Hailed as 2012 Executive Crossover at 8th C! Awards
The Volvo XC70 was hailed as the 2012 Executive Crossover at the 8th Annual C! Awards and has once again proven that it is the top choice when it comes to excellent cross country transport.
The Volvo XC70 is a sophisticated and elegant car for an active urban life and a reliable partner for all kinds of exciting adventures. A unique soft nose, characterized by a larger grille and headlamps, it is complemented with the dark colored body panels for an exclusive, rugged impression. The tailgate's upper section has a sportier forward-leaning stance. The tailgate overlaps the tail lamps, providing an even wider opening. The glass goes further down at the sides, enhancing rear view while the rails are integrated into the A-pillar moldings.
Designed to be functional, the 40/20/40-split rear seat has integrated seat belt to share with you and yours while the luggage compartment volume of 555L (ISO V211) is big enough for a variety of loads and has a storage space under the floor that is locked when the tailgate is shut. An upgraded turbodiesel D5 engine now delivers 215hp and 420Nm of torque and is coupled with Dynamic Stability and Traction Control that ensures driving fun.
Celebrate life knowing that the Volvo XC70 has been developed to give a first-class driving experience. Based largely on a pliant ride and secure road holding capabilities, this executive crossover ensures high stability which is particularly important when driving with many passengers and a lot of luggage. The chassis technology has also been further developed to provide even more stable and more controlled road manners. The suspension system and engine installation have been enhanced to ensure high-class comfort.
In 2008, the Volvo XC70 won as the Luxury Cross Over- Wagon 4WD at the Philippine Car of the Year Awards, Best 4x4 Estate of the Year in the UK and Best Crossover in Russia’s Car of the Year awards, among others. A perfect balance of luxury, safety, reliability, the Volvo XC70 is without a doubt, an executive crossover designed around you.
