Still smaller than the 'middle' at the front, at least.
I'm not sure about the diameter of my rear discs. But they are vented too.

TT82 - me too - 316mm (Disc part number is 31400764)... No way a 16" rim would fit. I have 17" summer and 17" winter wheels...

Just contact your dealer who can advice. I got a good deal on the 16" from them by being a VOC member so bought them there rather than from a 3rd party. Tyres sourced from elsewhere. I got the NAOS, easy on the eye and easy to clean.

Basic version of my 2016 xc70 181hp D4 in Belgium comes with 215/65R 16 wheels and tyres while higher spec versions come with 235/55R 17" or 235/50R 18" wheels and tyres.

Brake discs are 316mm 31400764 throughout.

Remember that 316mm dia discs actually equate to only about 12.5" in diameter not 16.5"
