Volvo, long known for their boxy designs and Swedish efficiency, developed the C70 coupe and convertible in the 1990s. Unlike their previous models, the C70 featured sweeping curves, a more attractive and elegant front end, and stylish more in line with a BMW than a Volvo. Like most Volvos, the turbo-charged engine gives the C70 some significant oomph. In 2006 Volvo redesigned the vehicle - eliminating the coupe and offering the C70 as a hard-topped convertible. The end result is a popular and stylish hard-top convertible coupe which has remained a mainstay in the Volvo line ever since.
Today the C70 is a four-passenger convertible/coupe with just enough sport enhanced design to bridge the gap between the dull and drab and the ostentatious. The C70 is based on an older Volvo platform. It’s powered by a 2.5 liter, four-cylinder, turbo-charged engine which pumps out an impressive 227 horsepower. The front-wheeled drive is available as a five-speed automatic with a manual shift controller for those in search of a more engaging driving experience.Read more »
