Knowing that the V70 is based on the S80, does anyone know when the V70 will be updated? Thinking that the V70 will be my next car, I'm wondering if I should wait until it's updated...

By "updated" are we saying the V70 will take on the styling of the current V50?<p>This would be great, IMHO. ... though I'm in more immediate need, and waiting to '08 is out.<p>-Chris

No one really knows, just speculation and computer photos

Unless you just can't wait, give 'em a year to work the kinks out first.

You were certainly in the minority and you have to admit that

Where'd ya get your info?<p>Also, in your prior post, where you say "the facelifted V50 you will see next year," are you referring to MY08 ? I've seen the 07 pics and list of changes, and they don't strike me as "facelift" material.<p>Thanks,<br>Chris
