You can't go wrong with the 1998 Volvo S70 STD Sedan, unless you're the type who can't live without some overhead rays: the sunroof is not available for this trim.
You can opt for power seats, though, as well as leather and a CD player. The 2.4-liter/168 hp engine yields 20 mpg city and 28 on the highway in the 5-speed manual version. Knock a digit down on those figures if you've gone for the optional 4-speed automatic overdrive.

Drivers of the 1998 Volvo S70 T5 have enough to be happy about when they're behind the wheel of this sweet machine, but the icing on the cake is that unmistakable turbo whistle when the accelerator goes down and all that good, cold air is sucked in to provide the boost. The 2.3 liter/236 hp engine yields 18 mpg city/25 hwy.
You don't need us to tell you that the ultimate experience comes from the 5-speed manual overdrive transmission, but if you prefer to pass on so much shifting, go for the optional 4-spd automatic.
As should be the case with a sporty number like this one, the sunroof is standard, as are AC, CD player, power windows, door locks, and seats. Kings and queens of comfort will want the optional leather interior.
