      From page 55 of the 2013 XC70 Brochure:

      Power-assisted hydraulic rack and pinion steering. Tilt and telescopic steering wheel column. 2.8 turns lock to lock. Behind the wheel, you can enjoy steering that’s both responsive and reassuring at all speeds. The optional speed dependent power steering gives progressively less power assistance the faster you drive. Higher steering precision and enhanced road feedback are easily enjoyed benefits. At lower speeds, added power assistance makes the car even easier to maneuver, for instance when parking.
