Full 2005 Volvo XC70 Review
What's New for 2005
Stone Gray bumpers and lower side trim replace last year's Slate Blue bumpers and trim. The grille has been redesigned, along with new headlamps (with new washers) and taillamps. Also new this year are brushed aluminum roof rails, flat-blade windshield wipers and aluminum skid plates. The front seats have been redesigned, along with the cruise control interface, center console and audio systems. A trip computer is now standard, and rear park assist, satellite radio preparation, a wood steering wheel, integrated booster seats, a rear-facing third-row seat, and a 40/20/40 rear seat are all stand-alone options. Real wood inlays replace last year's fake pieces in the Premium Package. A blind spot information system is added to the options list later in the model year.
