Volvo V70 2.4 D5 SE Diesel Estate...

Volvo is best known for large and practical estates and the V70 remains the core model for the manufacturer - a modern version of its archetypal load carrier. But while the carmaker used to make some of the biggest estates around, other models can now match it when it comes to sheer boot space. That said, the V70 is still capable of carrying plenty thanks to its long boot floor and wide tailgate opening while there's also a clever luggage system that keeps items in the boot secure. On the road it's comfortable and quiet, if not especially exciting to drive. But the seats - a traditional Volvo strength - are regarded by many as the most comfortable around, making it an ideal long distance car

Most owners opt for a diesel V70 and it's easy to see why. The 2.4D produces 163bhp while the higher-performance D5 uses the same five-cylinder engine but develops an impressive 185bhp. It can accelerate from 0-62mph in 8.2 seconds but it's the in-gear acceleration which impresses most, while fuel economy of 44mpg promises affordable running costs.

These were both upgraded in 2009 with significant reductions in CO2 emissions (down from 178g/km to 157g/km in the 2.4D) despite the fact that power actually increase slightly - the D5 getting an extra 20bhp. A 2.0D was introduced at the beginning of 2008 which is designed for economy. It's not particularly quick with 136bhp on tap, but will happily cruise on the motorway and averages 48mpg. No surprise that it is one of the most popular choices. All manual versions of the V70, with the exception of the entry-level 2.0-litre petrol, use a six-ratio gearbox, while the Geartronic automatic (the only transmission available on the 3.2-litre and the T6) is also a six-speed. The V70 is good for caravanners or those towing trailers and 2.4D and D5 models can pull braked trailers up to 1,800kg while four-wheel drive models can tow 2,000kg.
