The Volvo V70 R is a powerful car, ideal for the family. The station wagon with 300 hp that beats many SUVs

The Volvo V70 is one of the most practical family cars. The Swedish station wagon also had a sporty, all-wheel drive variant called the V70 R.

Volvo is known for its large, spacious station wagons that offer a good level of practicality. Their cars are often seen as clunky, vehicles that don’t inspire sportiness or the thrills you’d get from, say, certain German racers.

The second generation of the V70 brought a look with rounded lines, which was no longer related to the design that Volvo used in the past on its models. This generation only used five-piston engines, either diesel or petrol.

The hottest version of all is the V70 R. With a powerful engine, all-wheel drive and adaptive suspension, the V70 R was a formidable opponent for the competition at the time.

How much is a second hand Volvo V70 R?

Prices for such a model fluctuate, being influenced by several factors, including age, options and whether the car has a manual gearbox.

The copy we found for sale on it has the coveted six-speed manual gearbox. This is paired with a 2.5-liter turbo engine that develops 300 horsepower.

The improvements didn’t stop there, the car was also equipped with high-performance Brembo brakes and three-stage adjustable shock absorbers (Comfort, Sport and Advanced).

Among other things, you get a more aggressive body kit, alloy wheels specific to this version, but also an interior with sports leather seats. The car we found is in good condition, both inside and out, despite being manufactured in 2004 and having 280,000 kilometers on it. The asking price for this copy is 8000 euros.

The Volvo V70 R can be a fun car for those who want a capable but practical vehicle. It retains all the functionality of a regular V70, but brings a powerful engine into play, which is accompanied by a chassis set to be more dynamic.
