Volvo's hardtop convertible, the C70, gains horsepower, technology and some fine detailing for the 2008 model year.
The news under the C70's hood comes in the form of a nine-horsepower bump; overall, the C70's turbocharged 2.5-liter in-line five now has 227 horsepower, up from 218 hp. A six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic gearbox are offered on the front-driver.
The C70's folding hardtop mechanism soldiers on into the new year, while, inside the cockpit, Laminated Oak wood trim has been added to the center control panel, console and door handle surrounds, in place of the aluminum trim of the first model year. Leather trim has been applied to the steering wheel and the gearshift knob, too. The handbrake has been redesigned for a more compact arrangement, and the clock has been moved to the information screen.
Volvo's also added a standard tire-pressure monitoring system, along with improved air vents. A brighter finish is applied to the hardtop convertible button, and the Volvo "ironmark" has been added to the remote keyfob.
Ice White paint is now offered, alongside Pearl White, and a premium Sovereign Hide leather trim is available.
