Model Highlights

Volvo's front-wheel-drive C70 convertible is offered only with the top-performing T5 engine for 2009, a 2.5L five-cylinder engine making 227 horsepower. It is matched to a standard six-speed manual gearbox with triple synchros for optimum shift feel, while a five-speed Geartronic automatic transmission with manual shift control is optional. With the manual transmission, Volvo says the C70 can reach 60 mph in 7.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of 150 mph.

The C70 has a contemporary appearance consistent with the rest of the Volvo lineup. Most notably, the cockpit features the super-thin "floating" center stack, which allows a flow-through storage area behind the audio and climate controls. A special synthetic seating material called Vulcaflex is standard on the C70, while leather upholstery is optional.

The retractable hard top system folds away neatly inside the trunk in about 30 seconds, and while the trunk contents are still accessible with the top down, usable cargo space decreases from 12.8 cubic feet to 6.8 cubic feet. The top boasts several other important benefits; It offers better outward visibility and a quieter interior than a soft-top convertible, while the top also assures a stiffer body for better handling. It also gives the attractive appearance of a coupe body style.

The C70 uses a unique door-mounted inflatable curtain air bag design, which offers head protection in side impacts and rollovers even when the windows are down, and offers supplemental protection in the event of a rollover. Automatically deploying pop-up roll bars also protect occupants in the event of a rollover.

A six-disc CD changer with MP3 compatibility comes with the standard sound system, which has eight speakers and 160 watts over four channels. The optional Dynaudio sound system cranks out 910 watts of power and has Dolby Pro Logic II Surround Sound, 14 speakers and dual 8-inch woofers.

The Premium Package brings leather seating, a remote garage door opener and a compass, while the Climate Package groups heated front seats, headlamp washers and rain-sensing windshield wipers. A Convenience Package bundles rear park assist, keyless drive and a blind spot information system with power retractable exterior mirrors. Standalone options include a DVD-based navigation system, bi-xenon headlamps and 18-inch alloy wheels.


Model News

Volvo's C70 was completely redesigned in 2006 and remains relatively unchanged for 2009. Outside, the Volvo features larger badging across the back. The front disc brakes have enlarged and the car has been lighted by 165 pounds. Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is now standard, and Vanilla Pearl Metallic has been added to the exterior color palette.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Volvo C70 is one of only a few convertible models with a full-size back seat and space for four adults. It stands out from other convertibles for its solid construction and all-weather retractable hard top, and for its interior amenities, such as the class-leading Dynaudio sound system. As with other Volvo models, the C70 boasts some of the most advanced safety measures in its class, including an advanced air bag and roll bar system designed to protect occupants when the top is down.
