About Volvo S70

Nothing says executive styling like the Volvo S70, with its plush interior and boxy styling. The Swiss auto manufacturer offered multiple trim levels on the S70, which was designed as an upgrade from the 850. First offered in the U.S. in 1997, the compact sedan is packed with many of the top safety features available at the time, such as traction control, dashboard airbags, and side-impact protection, but the real showstopper on the Volvo S70 is its braking ability. On the 1999 model, the brakes got an upgrade to four-channel ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution so drivers can stop on a dime. Give a Grand Lux Turbo model a modern look by upgrading the original Volvo S70 wheels to a snappy looking set of 16-inch Vision Kryptonites that offset the color scheme. Or, if you want to preserve the integrity of the original design, swap that burned-out Volvo S70 headlight with an OEM replacement, which are still widely available for a car of this age. When you shop on eBay, you can find OEM and aftermarket parts as well as accessories.
