Overview Information

Volvo has re-introduced the C70 coupe in a smaller package. The new C70 T5 is equipped with a 218-bhp 2.5L inline-5 turbo, and a choice of a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. A power retractable hardtop improves security and safety, with no compromises. The C70 is unique as the only 4-seat convertible with a metal top sold in the USA. An optional DynaudioŽ CD stereo system has 14 speakers, dual subwoofers, and a staggering 910 watts total system power. Like all Volvos, the C70 has a comprehensive set of safety features. The C70 should be especially appealing to the safety conscious buyer looking for a premium compact convertible.

What Changed:

All-new second generation C70 features a retractable hard top.

Official Word:

"We've succeeded in creating an attractive convertible which, at the mere touch of a button, converts into an equally elegant coupe. The customer gets two cars in one. Both with space for four adults" -- Hans-Olov Olsson, Volvo Cars President and CEO.
