Hardtop Convertible The front-wheel-drive C70 was first introduced for 1998, as Volvowas pushing its image a bit upscale. Compared to the boxy,utilitarian, and sometimes dowdy designs that the brand had beenselling in recent years, the C70 was a bit sexy and more daring thananything else in the lineup. But even though it garnered attentionfrom a design standpoint, the driving experience was decidedlyunderstated. The turbocharged five-cylinder engine, whether inlower-pressure 190-hp or higher-boost 236-hp form, provided gutsystraight-line performance, but the C70's suspension was softlycalibrated and it didn't feel like a aporty vehicle from behind thewheel. Interior appointments also felt rather conservative, thoughthe power-operated soft top was one of the tightest, best-insulatedarrangements of the time and the back seat was usable by adults. The current version of the C70 was introduced in 2006. While theturbocharged in-line five-cylinder engine was carried over, it nowmade 227 hp and was paired with a five-speed automatic or six-speedmanual transmission. Once again, acceleration is strong with thispowertrain but the C70 is more of a cruiser than a tight-handlingsport machine. Front seats are very comfortable, as is the case withthose in most Volvos, but the back seat is cramped perhaps more sothan the last generation. A new retractable hardtop setup provides an even quieter, moreweather-tight setup that can fold down and stow in the trunk in 30seconds. However the hardtop cuts trunk space down to about 6 cubicfeet with the top down, and visibility still isn't great with the topup, especially when parking. Safety hasn't been sacrificed, thoughVolvo has fitted a pop-up roll bar, and electronic stability controland six airbags are standard. The IIHS has even rated the C70 'good'in frontal and side protection. Volvo has tweaked its standard-equipment list for the C70seemingly every year, in recent model years, but over the pastseveral years the convertible has come with most typical luxuryfeatures plus a nice 160-watt CD/MP3 sound system, plus Bluetooth andan iPod/USB connector. A Multimedia Package upgrades to an evenstronger Dynaudio surround-sound system and hard-drive-based navsystem with Real Time Traffic. Among several minor changes, Volvointroduced new wheel designs and a new front headrest design for2010. The C70 continued into the 2012 model year with a special-editionInscription convertible. which continued as a package into 2013.Volvo also added standard rain-sensing wipers and headlight washersto the C70's standard equipment for 2013, and with a factory fill offully synthetic oil, service intervals are now 10,000 miles. .
