Vehicle Overview

Volvo updated its small retractable-hardtop convertible, the C70, last year with revised styling. The C70 has room for four people and competes with the Infiniti G37 and Lexus IS convertibles.

New for 2012
Volvo has added Premier Plus and Platinum trim levels for 2012. Premier Plus includes keyless start, an integrated garage door opener, rear park assist and a compass in the auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Platinum adds a premium stereo and a navigation system. Bluetooth audio streaming is newly standard.

Thanks to the update last year, the C70's front end bears a family resemblance to the S60 sedan and XC60 crossover. Overall, the nose is more wedge-shaped and has a larger air intake than the previous version. LED taillights give the rear a contemporary appearance. Exterior features include:

  • Available headlight washers and rain-sensing wipers
  • Available adaptive xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Standard 17-inch wheels
  • Available 18-inch wheels

Volvo designed the instrument panel to impart more of a watch-dial design. Leather is standard, and cranberry-colored leather is optional. Other options include heated front seats, black oak inlays, a humidity sensor and an interior air-quality system that catches allergens. Interior features include:

  • Leather seats standard
  • Standard dual-zone climate control
  • Standard CD stereo with an auxiliary jack
  • Standard trip computer
  • Available navigation system with real-time traffic data

Under the Hood
The front-drive C70 is powered by a turbocharged five-cylinder engine. Mechanical features include:

  • 227 horsepower and 236 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed automatic transmission

Side-impact and side curtain airbags are standard. Volvo says the curtains are designed to stay deployed in the event of a rollover. Additional safety features include:

  • Standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard traction control
  • Standard electronic stability system
  • Standard active front head restraints
