All-New XC70, the next generation of Volvo's segment defining crossover and the All-New V70, staking claim as a segment leader take the stage in Europe's first major auto show

GENEVA, March 6 -- The all-new Volvo XC70 is being introduced at the Geneva Motor Show with comprehensive changes inside and out. With new styling cues, improved driving dynamics, inspiring technological applications, added luxury and of course new developments in safety, Volvo ups the ante in taking its popular crossover to the next level.

"We had a winning concept from the very outset and we have continuously refined it," says Fredrik Arp, president and CEO of Volvo Car Corp. "The all-new XC70 maintains its tough, capable attitude while at the same time growing more comfortable. Additionally, our design team has given the vehicle a more elegant, more luxurious look."

As a leader in the wagon segment with 54 years of continuous refinement and improvement, Volvo is also introducing the all-new Volvo V70 in Geneva. With its perfect balance of luxury, versatility and safety, the all-new Volvo V70 sets the standard for premium wagons.

"This segment has been our specialty ever since we invented it back in the 1950s," said Volvo Cars President and CEO Fredrik Arp. "Our competitors can count on us remaining number one in the future, too. In the all-new V70, rear passengers and luggage both ride in first class."
