For Sale: 2005 Volvo V70 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Turbocharged, all-wheel drive, and awesomely sleek... this 2005 Volvo V70R doesn't even need to boast about its safety record in the headline to be attractive. Instead, the allure is from a quick and nimble machine with awesome style and plenty of luxury features.

Volvo didn't invent the wagon, but we can arguably say they perfected it. The V70 has a premium crafted look where the rounded corner of the headlights helps establish a style line that runs the full profile. And of course, this is the hot R-version. Volvo doesn't like to shout its sporting nature from the rooftops, because that's not the Swedish way. But the special bumper with deep air intake, rear hatch spoiler, and special R-level 17-inch alloys are tasteful additions that European car fans instantly recognize. It's all about being a bit more subtle and offering a fast-with-class attitude. That's why the Mystic Silver retains a nice glow, but nothing too flashy. And it goes well with the deeply tinted windows.

The spacious interior is pure Swedish cool. After all, only Volvo (and maybe Maserati) can mix black with dark blue. It's not just the leather seats and door panels, there are plenty of cool blue details, including the background for the dials. Because this rivals the German sports sedans/wagons for power, it also delivers the level of luxury you could expect from a BMW or Mercedes. This includes a long list of features, like power front seats (w/driver's memory), power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, a premium AM/FM/CD six-disc changer, a power sunroof, and dual-zone automatic A/C climate control. As a true Volvo, you get a terrific safety rating and features like dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. The odometer reflects the car's full mileage, but you can also see from the condition of the interior there is less wear than its contemporaries. That's the right sign of good care. So this seems to have led a careful suburban life where all that cargo room was more likely to carry a few groceries rather than bringing in dogs from the field.

What makes the V70R such a hot car today (and a great future collectible contender) is the motor. The 2.5-liter was specially enhanced with a new turbocharger and other go-fast goodies to give it 300 horsepower. That instantly puts it right next to the top BMW 5-Series wagons. And making sure this feels like a terrific European is a sharp handling fully independent suspension and the confidence of all-wheel drive. But this is not just a sports wagon. The inline five-cylinder motor has a smooth nature, and the five-speed automatic transmission has a great balance of a sporting nature that also has easy overdrive comfort. Add in power steering, cruise control, and four-wheel disc brakes, and you have a great anytime driving package.

Complete with the owner's manual packet, this is the distinct, speedy, and all-around useful wagon you've always wanted. And this future classic may likely never be so within reach again. Call today!!!
