Volvo V70 XC (1999)

Volvo V70 XC

The Volvo V70 XC (Cross Country) was launched at the 1997 Frankfurt International Motor Show. This car was launched with the choice of either a 2.5-litre light-pressure turbo of 193 hp with automatic transmission, or a 2.0-litre high-pressure turbo developing 225 hp with a manual gearbox. With its high ground clearance, its advanced all-wheel drive and its sporty good looks, the Volvo V70 XC rapidly became a success in North America and elsewhere.

Later the V70 XC name of this model was changed to Volvo XC70.
