2016 Volvo XC70 Pricing Announced
ROCKLEIGH, New Jersey – The 2016 Volvo XC70 wagon starts at $38,025, including a $925 destination charge, for the base T5 Drive-E model, Volvo Cars of North America announced on Thursday. The XC70 is expected to arrive at Volvo dealerships this fall.
The price reflects a $1,250 increase compared to the base 2015 model.
The XC70 T5 Drive-E gets some enhancements for the new model year.
They include new standard 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats and an interior air quality system. A blind-spot information system is standard on the Platinum trim level, which starts at $46,600, including shipping.
New optional exterior colors include Magic Blue, Rich Java and Onyx Black.
The XC70 T5 AWD with standard all-wheel drive is a new model for 2016, priced at $39,525, including shipping.
It is equipped with a 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers 250 horsepower and a six-speed automatic transmission.
Volvo said the XC70 3.2 AWD and XC70 T6 AWD models have been discontinued for 2016.
Key XC70 competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Lincoln MKX.
Edmunds says: The relatively modest price increase should not deter shoppers seeking an attractive crossover alternative and the most wagon-like vehicle in the Volvo lineup.
