Car reviews - Volvo - C70 - Hardtop Convertible range
Volvo's style leader, the C70 coupe convertible, is even more stylish for 2010
5 May 2010
IN a busy year for Volvo, even niche models such as the C70 coupe convertible have come in for a refresh, with a curvier new nose, a slightly different rear, more high-end cabin treatment and a wider range of personalisation options. All are designed to boost the appeal of the four-year-old droptop. We think Volvo is in with a chance too, since the company slashed about $10,000 from the C70’s price late last year to greatly boost its value quotient. The fact that archrival Saab’s evergreen 9-3 Convertible is on hiatus is also a plus point for the team from Gothenburg. Still, for good or for bad, this car is still essentially the same C70.

VOLVO’S previous convertible was the pretty but seriously flawed C70 from the late 1990s. Thankfully the second-generation model was a big leap forward.
