Pictures of the new 2008 Volvo V70 wagon have surfaced, and it looks exactly how we expected it to. It’s styling is a gentle evolution from the outgoing model, with a front end from the new S80 sedan and a rear hatch design similar to the new C30 hatch. It’s interior is also borrowed from the S80, using the same minimalist design themes that are a breath of fresh air in the segment. Based on what we see here, we’re guessing powertrain options will reflect the S80 sedan as well. That means optional all-wheel drive and a transversely mounted V-8 sourced from Yamaha. Base power will come from an all-new naturally aspirated 3.2-liter in-line six producing 232 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will mate to a six-speed automatic.
