Volvo has announced that it is giving its V70 range a new lease of life, with adaptations to the basic model and a new V70 Sport trim going on sale.
The manufacturer’s V70 selection has been drastically cut down, with the number of models being reduced from 46 to 15.
Volvo’s most popular engines have been left in place however, including the 168bhp 2.4, the 207bhp turbocharged 2.5T and the 256bhp T5.
Price changes have also been implemented with the cost of the 168bhp 2.4-litre being reduced by £700, meaning that the basic entry level V70 S now costs £23,810.
The new V70 Special Edition Sport trim will cost £500 more than the basic V70 but £1,500 less than the model that it is replacing. It will be powered by either a 168bhp petrol engine or a choice of diesel options at 161 and 182bhp.
Among the features of this model are speed-dependent power steering, 17-inch alloys, a leather steering wheel and chronograph instrumentation.
The new model is available now and starts from £24,310.
