Benefits of Driving a 2010 Volvo C70 Convertible
Based on Volvo's S40/V50 compact car, the 2010 Volvo C70 is one of only a few convertible models that feature a full-size back seat offering ample room for four adults. Its solid construction, all-weather retractable hard top and interior amenities make it a strong competitor to the Lexus IS and the Infiniti G37. MSRP starts at $40,000. Mileage is estimated at 20 city / 28 highway.
What's new for 2010?
The Volvo C70 gets a number of subtle and striking styling upgrades for 2010. Taking design cues from other Volvo models, the XC60 and the S60 Concept Car introduced in Detroit in January 2009, the new C70 convertible has a new front fascia, headlights, fenders and tail lights, and some updated materials in the interior, including a new instrument cluster and softer leather seats. Headlights are larger and sweep further back while more pronounced taillights and a dual exhaust accent the rear. The Volvo emblem is now more prominent on the front grille and on the rear decklid.
