Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview Volvo has redesigned its small hardtop convertible, the C70, and much of the work will be obvious to passers-by. That's because, while there are some interior changes, the most dramatic changes are to the car's bodywork.
Exterior Thanks to the redesign, the C70's front end bears a resemblance to the recently released XC60 crossover. Overall, the nose is more wedge-shaped and there is a larger air intake. The back less is altered, but new LED taillights give the car a needed update. There are also two new colors and a new wheel design for 2011. Headlamp washers, 18-inch wheels and rear park assist are optional.
Interior Though less is new here, Volvo redesigned the instrument panel and gave the gauges more of a watch-dial design, according to the automaker. The center console is also new. Leather is standard, and there's a new shade — Cranberry — for 2010. Options include keyless drive, an integrated compass in the rearview mirror, heated front seats and light oak inlays for the interior.
Under the hood The C70 is powered by a turbocharged five-cylinder that produces 227 horsepower and is estimated to get 20/29 mpg city/highway. A five-speed automatic is standard.
Safety In addition to the required dual front airbags, side-impact and side curtain airbags are standard. Volvo says the curtains are designed to stay deployed in the event of a rollover. Traction control and an electronic stability system are standard.
