How is the design of Volvo V70
The Volvo V70 was designed as a replacement of the Volvo S70 and the Volvo V850 which were already two flagship Volvo models, so in order to maintain the integrity and the goodwill of Volvo brand and especially the Volvo station wagon reputation Volvo developed a completely new interior with sleek cuts and plush leather seats. It also went for an aerodynamic style since the Volvo is usually marketed in countries with rough long cold winters and rugged terrains such as Canada and the other Nordic countries. The results were amazing and the Volvo V70 instantly became a public favourite in all the export as well as domestic markets. Despite the design suited for cold regions, the Volvo V70 is still a standout and unique looking vehicle in the Nigerian automobile market.

Overall impression of Volvo V70
Although the Volvo V70 is marketed as a family car, it is as good for singles as is for families. The reasons for this are the excellent maneuvering abilities of the Volvo V70 which gives an excellent traction and a very good road grip which transfers a maximum amount of brake power to the tires which in turn translates into very high fuel efficiency. The fuel efficiency combined with the soft and luxurious touch and feel of the Volvo V70 are primarily responsible for the excellent sales and the huge popularity of the Volvo V70 in the export markets as well as in the Nordic countries and North America and Chile.
