One of the models that miss in the company’s lineup is this crossover/wagon, which has been famous for years, for its amazing practicality and plenty of luxury. Latest reports suggest that the next generation of this model could come already in the next year, as 2019 Volvo XC70. It should continue with the same overall design approach, but with plenty of new design solutions and technologies. Of course, we are about to see a completely new design, with new mechanics, new visual appearance and much more. Count on Volvo’s famous high level of safety as well. It looks like the new model is in the advanced stage of development and that we could see it earlier that most of us would expect.
2019 Volvo XC70 Redesign
After a few years of break, we are about to see this model once again, most likely as 2019 Volvo XC70. This model has been famous for its design, which combines design characteristics of a crossover and station wagon. It’s not the first model that came with this approach but it is definitely the most luxurious. In terms of mechanics, expect a lot of parts shared with the XC90. This mid-size crossover came a few years ago and the same SPA platform will be applied to this model. On the other side, expect a different body style. With the shape of a station wagon and crossover-like high ground clearance, this will be a perfect family car. It will be adapted to the company’s newest design language, which in practice means pretty much the same front end as on the V90. Moreover, the two models should feature very similar overall shape.
2019 Volvo XC70 Interior design
When it comes to the 2019 Volvo XC70 interior, we expect to see no surprises. Expect to see a familiar dashboard layout, the same that characterize all new models from the company, highlighted by a large, vertically positioned touchscreen. Besides plenty of premium-quality materials, count on a plethora of newest technologies. Some of the notable standard features should be things like a smartphone integration, 10-speaker audio system, and numerous safety features.
Which safety systems will be available in the 2019 Volvo XC70?
Safety has always been the strongest point of this brand and the new 2019 Volvo XC70 won’t be an exception. Moreover, it will come with the pretty much everything this manufacturer has to offer. Count on things like lane departure warning, lane keeps assist, road sign detection, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian, 360-degree camera, head-up display and much more.
2019 Volvo XC70 Engines
Expect to find a familiar 2.0-liter turbo inline-four unit under the hood of 2019 Volvo XC70. In its base, T5 version, it delivers around 250 horsepower. Higher trims will come with a version that is good for about 320 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque.
In parts of the world like Europe, diesel engines will be available too. A familiar 2.0-liter engine comes with either 150, 180, or 235 horsepower.
Will we see 2019 Volvo XC70 T8 in the offer?
Most likely, yes. The 2019 Volvo XC70 hybrid version is also expected. Count on a familiar T8 system, which combines a gasoline engine with a hi-output electric motor, making a total power of around 400 horses.
All versions should come with the same 8-speed automatic transmission.
