Volvo XC70 Crossover Wagon Gets New Engine, Transmission in 2015

The car industry has shifted away from producing and selling station wagons over the past few decades, which is part of what makes the 2015 Volvo XC70 crossover wagon so intriguing to car buyers and experts alike. With its SUV-styling and higher ground clearance, the XC70's design is miles ahead of the plain and bulky station wagons of old. Instead, the new XC70 combines the luxury styling of a Volvo sedan with the convenience and features that only an SUV can offer. The XC70 comfortably seats five, has a massive amount of cargo room, and performs admirably even in the worst driving conditions. Simply put, the 2015 Volvo XC70 isn't like anything else on the market, and you have to check it out for yourself to see why!

The most notable change to the XC70 in 2015 is the addition of Volvo's new Drive-E engine - a four-cylinder with direct injection that makes 240 horsepower. Along with an eight-speed Geartronic automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, the four-cylinder comes in all base trim XC70 wagons. Those who upgrade to the all-wheel drive models will also get an inline six-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed automatic transmission with driver-selectable shifting. Between these two top-notch engines and the its powerful frame, the XC70 a marvel on- and off-road, and there aren't many vehicles out there that will perform better in rain, snow, or other adverse conditions.

Of course, the 2015 Volvo XC70's appeal goes far beyond its prowess on the roads. Inside and out, the XC70 oozes luxury, from its heated side mirrors to its standard remote keyless entry and rear wipers. Some other standard features include side-mirror-mounted turn signals, automatic temperature control, memory seats, and much more. Of course, there are plenty of add-ons as well that can take your new XC70 to the next level. Some of the most popular optional features are the navigation system, entertainment system, heated front and back seats, leather upholstery, wood paneling, and heated steering wheel.
