Volvo XC Resources


The original Cross Country model, originally debuted in 1997 as the V70XC as an AWD derivative of Volvo’s V70 wagon.

The first generation lasted for three years, and in 2001 gave way to the second generation V70XC, but this time much more identifiable as a more distinct XC model.

In 2003 the model name was changed to XC70, in an effort to simplify the naming convention, and make way for their new XC90 SUV model.


  1. My first Volvo I owned was a beautiful Silver, 1999 V70 (non-turbo) with manual gearbox.
    My second is a handsome Black 2003 V70 2.5T Cross Country with automatic gearbox.

  2. Hello my name is Chris, I have a 2005 xc70. I am going to replace my front and rear sway bar links, control arms with bushings, front ball joints and rear springs. I was hoping to get some suggestions on what manufactures are the best. Thanks Chris
