The classic big Volvo hold all. No-one has been doing big, clever estates as long as Volvo and it shows. Massively comfortable and practical with a nice range of petrol and diesel engines. A proper family car.
Very safe and solid to drive, very safe and solid to be in. The cabin is very well laid out and highly kid proof. Masses of space for all and Volvo's safety record is second to none.
The most popular car is the 2.0 diesel SE model. This offers excellent MPG and a good specification. The 2.4, 5 cylinder diesel, although less economical is better specified with the option of an automatic gearbox and will have a lower average mileage.
The 2.4 D5 models make the most sense as they are similar in price to the 2.0 cars but most have the auto box, less miles and a higher spec. The rare petrol models make enormous sense if fuel and tax are not considerations.
The cheapest diesel cars on the market are around £15,000 and should have under 50,000 miles showing. A 2.4 D5 with full spec at a year old will cost as much as £25,000 with less than 10,000 on the clock. A comparative 3.2 petrol will cost £5000.00 less.
The best time to buy is at three years when the first MOT has been issued. . A petrol will have lost nearly 50% of its value in three years. After that depreciation is going to be steady on diesel models
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Volvo V70 you would aim to buy a 3 year old and sell it before it is 4 years old.
Diesel Volvo V70 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Volvo V70 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Diesel Volvo V70 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
