Full 1999 Volvo S70 Review
What's New for 1999
Volvo adds an all-wheel-drive model (S70 AWD) to the lineup and makes a number of performance, safety and styling upgrades. All cars benefit from a new engine management system and an improved brake system that includes four-channel ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). In terms of safety, S70s now include head-protecting side airbags and dual-stage deployment for the front airbags. Stability and traction control is now standard on the T5, and all other front-drive models are equipped with traction control. On the cosmetic side, all S70s receive a new grille emblem and body-color side moldings, mirrors, door handles and bumpers.
