The 2008 Volvo XC70 station wagon with some cross-country skills will cost you as low as $37,520.

That’s if you take a very basic model, which is still a lot more luxurious than an average German estate from BMW or Mercedes-Benz of a similar size and within the same price range. Besides a set of 16-inch alloy wheels, for the money you will also get an eight-way power driver’s seat, dual zone climate control system and lots of other amenities.

Built on the Ford EUCD global platform, this utilitarian, yet quite luxury vehicle shares its underpinnings with the new 2007 Land Rover Freelander/LR2 SUV and has a great deal of its plush interior transplanted directly from the 2007 Volvo S80 executive sedan that was first revealed last year.

German tuner Heico Sportiv has updated its Volvo XC90 appearance package to fit the aging crossover SUV that was recently updated for the MY 2007.

German tuning specialist Heico Sportiv has presented its tuning program for the second generation Volvo S80 luxury sedan. Unveiled in the beginning of the year, with first cars arriving to European dealerships only last June, the 2007 Volvo S80 is still new and shining for most customers.

Although the latest 2006 Volvo C70 coupe-convertible seems to be one of the most successful attempts at creating a two-door coupe with a hardtop roof (other vehicles, even the glamorous Mercedes-Benz SLK, with their long trunks and rather short cabins looks a little bit lousy, you know), the German Heico Sportiv tuning company dares to add some final touches that make the C70 look really gorgeous. For the money, of course.
