Here is another vehicle which has a regular following and almost cult status here in both Mid and the Vale of Glamorgan. Most vehicles supplied have been the original AWD D5's which are generally snapped up on the used market within a short time of their offering. The new models are now using both the D4 2.0 Litre TD engine in both two and AWD formats, the rest of the range which includes the D5 2.4, 5 cyl TD engine and the T6 petrol version in AWD only. There are four transmission offerings, both Manual and three automatic choices,
all with 6 speeds. There are only two models in the new range, that being the SE as standard and the SE LUX for uprated trim and equipment levels. Based on the ubiquitous V70 estate, with stronger body panels and protective equipment to ensure any body damage is minimalised , is goes without saying that the vehicles safety record, carrying capabilities, versatility and comfort are without question, the very reason they are always in demand both new and used. With the raised ground clearance and AWD, they offer excellent transport for those living in rural areas.
The new version allows those to whom the looks appeal the alternative to AWD complexity with the D4 2WD version, which has proven to be a sought after vehicle especially on the used market. We always have a good supply of both the face lifted XC70 cross Country, together with 2-3 years old models filtering down onto the used market. Generally they do not stay long in the showroom, finding homes very quickly and remaining with the owners for considerable lengths of ownership. The servicing of these vehicles is paramount, but will give you many years of reliable transport when cared for. Shown to the right is the latest facelifted version as of 2013, which offers less CO2 with fuel economy gains in certain engine and geartronic combinations.
