Currently reading: Volvo V70 and XC70 prices announced
New load-luggers will undercut the E-class and 5-series

The new Volvo V70 will cost from £26,495 when it arrives in the UK in September. Its jacked-up sister-car, the XC70, will start at £31,035. Both cars will be available in three trim levels, SE, SE Sport and SE Lux.

The trim levels are far too complicated to go into here – we recommend you ask your local Volvo dealer if you want more information.

What we can tell you is that all V70s and XC70s get 40/20/40 split folding rear seats, folding steel load protection grille, a cargo system, grocery bag holder, 12V power outlet in the boot and roof rails. Standard wheels are 17-inch alloys, and there's aluminium trim plus an eight-speaker hi-fi included.

The V70 comes with a choice of three petrol engines and two diesels. Manual transmission is standard except on the 3.2 and T6 AWD petrols, which are auto-only. The XC70 comes only as a D5 diesel (manual or auto) or 3.2 petrol (auto only).
