2021 Volvo XC70 Release Date, Price and Specs

2021 Volvo XC70 review

With its cuff protection and raised suspension, the 2021 Volvo XC70 can be an appealing choice if you want to do a lot of driving on gravel and dirt roads whilst still enjoying some bit of comfort and luxury. However, many crossovers in the segment can do the same and come in newer designs. Some of its upsides include a light-duty off-rad ability, ample cargo capacity, numerous safety features, a fuel-sipping four-cylinder engine, and supportive front seats. Its date of release is expected in the latter half of 2021.

New add-ons for 2021 include a more fuel-efficient turbocharged engine, an updated infotainment system, and addition of a few standard features. When people consider purchasing a luxury crossover to bounce up o that vacation cabin or handle the latest snowstorm without looking worse for the wear, the first thing that hits their minds is a crossover Sports Utility Vehicle.

But have you ever thought of a luxury wagon like the 2021 Volvo XC70 that is constructed with the sole purpose of handling such duties? Well, now you know. The XC70 comes with some features that can enable it do those things: a raised suspension for additional ground clearance, an available all-wheel-drive system, lowered body panels with a material that resist scratches and hacks, and a front and rear underbody skid plates. This vehicle is meant particularly for those buyers who don’t have the in-thing about crossovers.

The vehicle is still practical despite sporting the upgrades. It offers a spacious cargo volume than most of its competitors. Also, a reputation so dear to Volvo is well-preserved – a slew of modern safety features.

Things only get better under its hood. The XC70 comes with a new 2.5L turbocharged inline-5 engine that replaces the previous 3.0L inline-6 and 3.2L inline-6 base engines. Another engine that we believe will be still suitable is the old 3.0L engine that, despite offering unimpressive fuel-efficient values, offers a powerful output.

It is always a good idea to window-shop around before making an ultimate decision. Some alternatives which you should consider sampling include the 2021 Audi Allroad, and the 2021 Subaru Outback.

Price & Release Date – 2021 Volvo XC70

Expect the 2021 Volvo XC70 to cost you an MSRP of $37,100. Its date of release is expected sometime late next year. Also, you will get an owners-manual which details everything you need to know about the vehicle upon purchasing it.

The fuel economy estimates as per EPA are 23/31/26 mpg in the city/highway/combined. The fuel consumption ratings are impressive due to the available stop-start system which is popular for its ability to automatically shut off the engine when the vehicle has stopped thereby saving a lot of gas.

The 2021 Toyota Corolla will come equipped with a number of features as standard which will compliment the functionality as well as comfort to the Corolla. The most noticeable aspect is the sporty appeal incorporated.

The new 2021 Toyota Corolla model will come with standard 17 inch light alloy wheels with a glossy black finish and a redesigned special design. The exterior has a modern futuristic look and dawns a choice of colours among them; Black Sand Pearl, Absolutely Red and Super White which not only sweeten things but are only exclusive to the Special Edition alone.

At the front end are aggressive headlights and wide mouth grille which undeniably give the Corolla an angrier look than its predecessors. At the back is a classic look that has rather been retained, the taillights are joined on the trunk by a horizontal line.

When we take a closer look at the 2021 Toyota Corolla, a lot of features have been added while some in the predecessors have been retained. A red contrast stitching, accented dash and door trim give the Special Edition a sportier appeal.

Coming as a standard are; key system incorporated pushbutton start, floor mats with logos which characterise the uniqueness of the model. For comfortable amenities, customers will receive Entune Premium Audio with App Suite and Navigation capabilities integration together with a slide and tilt powered sunroof.

Powertrain of 2021 Toyota Corolla

The 2021 Toyota Corolla just like in the case of the Corolla S Plus which is used as a base will be powered by a 1.8L four cylinder engine capable of producing 132 HP and 128lb-ft of torque that has the inbuilt capability of pairing with CVT.

On the limited edition model, no performance adding modifications have been made so far. The smaller capacity engine can be able to drive the car to almost 34miles per gallon which inevitably makes the engine a fuel efficient one. The car will be made available with a four-speed automatic transmission system and aims to please. The Japanese have undeniably worked hard to make the 2021 Toyota Corolla appease to the customers than any other model in their stable.

2021 Toyota Corolla price and release date

No price figures have been announced by Toyota as yet but it is worth considering that the base model of the 2015 Corolla S starts at $22,905 MSRP so expect a slight increment in price for the Special Edition. The Japanese Auto maker has remained mum on the official release but we expect them to make an announcement soon.

Speaking exclusively to nexcarreviews.com, the head of the Alfa Romeo brand in North America, Reid Bigland, said that Alfa’s compact sedan will go on sale in the United States market in early 2021.

This sedan which has been rumoured to be named Guilia will have four doors and is set to compete against the likes of Mercedes Benz c class and BMW 3 series.

He also gave us a glimpse of the Giulia which will also undoubtedly get a high performance model which will be aimed at both the Mercedes AMG C63 and BMW M3.

The second nameplate that North Americans should expect should be the Alfa’s much anticipated SUV which is set also for the first quarter of 2021 as we are going to analyse it below.

2021 Alfa Romeo SUV Design

Finally, with Alfa Romeo selling its 4C within the United States boarders which has been as a result of countless years of setbacks and delays, it appears that the Italian brand is enhancing its development gears by incorporating new plans. The company has been on record saying that they will launch a staggering eight brand new models by 2021, and two of this will be 2021 Alfa Romeo SUV’S. Though speculative, we should expect the first SUV somewhere next year which will be set to compete directly with Lexus NX, BMW X3 and Audi Q5.

The three competitors will stage a huge competition but under the direction of Chrysler/Fiat team, Alfa will offer a turbocharged V6 that will be able to offer a whopping 500 horsepower. Additionally, there will be a line-up of engines which will include a 6-cylinder, a 4-cylinder and a diesel engine. The expected SUV is rumoured to come with roughly the same size as the Volvo XC90.

This will undeniably act as the flagship SUV. Both the X3 and the XC90 Alfa SUV’s are reportedly going to ride on the same platform. The architectural construction will allow both the rear as well as the all-wheel drive system to enjoy a sporty 50/50 weight distribution.
