2012 Volvo XC70 Overview
The 2012 Volvo XC70 midsize crossover seats five across two rows of seats. It features the comfort and contains all the safety features that you would expect from a Volvo.
With each 2012 Volvo purchased, you receive the Safe+Secure Coverage plan; it features a five-year limited warranty, five-years of wear and tear coverage, five-years of scheduled maintenance, and a five-year roadside assistance program. There is an optional Technology Package that adds a litany of safety technology, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist, collision warning and pedestrian detection with full auto brake, distance alert, and a lane departure warning system.
Standard with the front-wheel drive 3.2-trim is a 240-horsepower, 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder, while the all-wheel drive T6-trim gets a 300-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder. Both engines are coupled to a six speed automatic transmission and premium unleaded fuel is recommended. An optional 230-horsepower, 3.2-liter PZEV engine is available on the 3.2. Fuel economy ranges from 17-19 mpg in the city to 23-25 mpg on the highway.
A well designed interior with wood trim and leather wrapped steering wheel, shifter, and brake handle make this a comfortable, functional and elegant looking cabin. The Drivers’ bucket seat in front is power assisted with a three way memory setting for both the seat and mirrors. A number of features are standard in all trim levels including a tilt/telescopic steering column, Volvo Sensus with integrated color display, pollen filter, dual-zone automatic climate control, USB/auxiliary audio inputs, and Bluetooth® connectivity.
Safety comes first on the XC70. All models come standard with dynamic stability and traction control and utilize Volvo’s Intelligent Driver Information System. The XC70 lineup comes standard with dual-stage front airbags, an energy-absorbing frontal structure, head restraints on all seats, a new pedestrian protection system, and a whiplash protection system.
Volvo continues to be one of the leaders in automotive safety and it continues to innovate and produce some of the safest cars on the road. Add in the 2012 XC70’s stylish design and highly functional and comfortable interior, and this crossover has many levels of appeal.
