Volvo V70 (P80)

1998-2000 Volvo V70 - P80 Platform - T5, XC, R

The first generation Volvo V70 was introduced to the USA market in 1998 as a replacement for (and evolution of) the 850 (estate) wagon.

Although they were styled a bit differently, these models shared a lot of components with other models built on the P80 platform (chassis.)

All USA market V70 models all had 2.3L, 2.4L or 2.5L five cylinder gasoline engines.  They were offered in normally aspirated, light pressure turbo and high pressure turbo variations.  They were also offered with FWD and AWD drivetrains. 

USA market AWD models were equipped with automatic transmissions and never had a high pressure turbo option with exception of the V70R variation which had AWD with a high pressure turbo and manual transmission option.

During the short run of the P80 V70, there were lots of technological changes to fuel and emission systems.  For example, drive by wire was introduced in 1999 along with the change from Bosch Motronic 4 to Motronic 7.

V70 T5

The V70 T5 was the high pressure turbo variant of the model range.  All USA T5 models were FWD but could have either a 5 speed manual transmission or a 4 speed automatic transmission.

V70 XC

The V70XC (or Cross Country) variation proved to be quite popular and paved the way for Volvo's path in to the light SUV and crossover market.  V70XC were all AWD and had styling and trim changes to distinguish them from non-XC models.

V70 R

V70R models were the high-performance variation of the V70 model line.  They had higher performance engines.  All USA V70R models were AWD with automatic transmissions.  R models had different trim and were available with in some exclusive colors options not available on other V70 variations.
