The V70R was Volvo’s answer to the question: How do you go really fast with extended family all legally buckled inside? The third row of seats meant that 7 people could enjoy the exhilaration of a inline-5 pushing boosted power & many torques into all four wheels.

Charcoal leather w Alcantera inserts, 4-speed auto AWD w/ sport and
winter modes. Clean title and loaded w/ most factory options including
rear spoiler and third row seats.
One owner and dealer maintained throughout. Good Pirelli P7 rubber and brakes. Timing belt replaced, recent up-grade to projector-type running and indicator lights. Small separation of driver’s seat pad/bolster, some curb rash on Pegasus wheels, minor urban contact dings and scratches, no rust. Passenger fog lamp and CD changer are inoperative, some transmission slip during summertime urban stop & go, otherwise all systems good on this excellent driver.
The V70R was powered by a 2.4 liter inline-5 that pushed 265 horsepower to all four wheels via a 5-speed automatic transmission. The V70R isn’t the fastest thing on the block, but it might be the fastest one with 7 seats and a sub $4k pricetag.
