New brushed-aluminum roof rails and an eggcrate grille go on 2005 XC70s. A trip computer and rear armrest are also now standard. The headlights and taillamps have been restyled, new front and rear skid plates are installed, and flat-blade windshield wipers are new.

The all-wheel-drive XC70 features a raised suspension and sport utility vehicle-style body trim. Ground clearance is 2 inches taller than other Volvo wagons. Like the V70, this wagon can be set up for either five- or seven-occupant seating.
