A supremely capable luxury wagon/crossover, the 2022 Volvo XC70, will arrive next year wearing a completely new design. So, for those who like to explore with a sense of sophistication, this model is the right choice. Proportionally the same as many wagons, the new Volvo XC70 comes with a very compact and unique design. For 2022, the manufacturer will introduce some innovations that will make it even more attractive.
Swedish automaker will also introduce the all-new XC100, which should be the next flagship model. However, when it comes to powertrain, we expect that Volvo uses some of its familiar units.
2022 Volvo XC70 Upgrades
The exterior design of the all-new 2022 Volvo XC70 will remain attractive and compact. Interestingly, some of the rendering photos reveal that the upcoming SUV will gain the same design language as its siblings. It wears a popular T-shaped LED daytime running lights, which Volvo calls “Thor’s Hammer”.
On top of that, the XC70 also comes with an attractive grille and newly shaped headlights. Like on the XC90, we expect the same hands-free operation tailgate system to endow the XC70. R-Design model should be available as well, featuring a sportier look thanks to a specific grille, high-gloss black exterior accents, matte-silver mirror caps, and the new exhaust outlets.
Inside, all Volvo models come with a very modern cabin, offering plenty of soft touches. The new 2022 Volvo XC70 will most likely to share plenty of styling with the XC90 model. First of all, you may count on a clean design and the same sizeable vertically-oriented infotainment screen that should dominate.
Volvo offers a 12.3 digital driver information display and a vertically oriented 9-inch infotainment touchscreen. When it comes to the interior space, we think that the new wagon/crossover layout would be practical. Generally speaking, it would provide more space than most of the SUVs.
2022 Volvo XC70 Powertrain Specs
When it comes to powertrain, we expect that Volvo uses some of the familiar units. Therefore, the standard engine will probably be a powerful 2.0-liter turbo-four, producing out around 250 horsepower. Moreover, for those who are seeking more power, the manufacturer might offer as optional the same engine with an additional supercharger. This unit should produce at least 316 horsepower.
Finally, we expect at least one plug-in hybrid version, which puts out around 400 horsepower. If you didn’t know, the Recharge is the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) setup, augmenting the T6’s engine with an electric motor, delivering very low emissions. All models above would most than likely use the same 8-speed automatic transmission.
Release Date, Price
The new 2022 Volvo XC70 is still just a rumor, but many reports suggest that we could see it sometime next year. Some renderings are available, and it seems that it will keep the same stylish wagon look. However, it looks refreshed, and it features the same front fascia as all nowadays XC models. As for the price, there are no exact figures. Moreover, we assume that standard models would go around 40.000 dollars, roughly.
