From Volvo press: The new Volvo C70 has a smart three-piece steel roof, practical seating for four adults and world-leading convertible safety. With an updated design and elevated premium feel, the C70 also delivers an "I want" aura of absolute world class.
The C70 is two cars in one. It is as much an elegant coupe as a sporty convertible. With the same gentle, clean lines in both versions.
The Volvo C70 reveals traces of the S60 that was unveiled in early 2010. Thereby the C70 is upgraded to relate more closely to the design language of the larger cars in the Volvo model range.
The nose is more wedge-shaped and has been given added three-dimensional depth by moving some elements of the front both longitudinally and vertically. The headlamps and the décor around the fog lamps, for instance, have been angled offset up and to the rear, at the same time as the detailing of the lower grille has been enhanced.
From head-on, the front forms an open, inviting "V". The enlarged iron mark and the enlarged air intake reinforce the self-assured stance.
The shoulder line swings up towards the rear to give an impression of dynamism and reinforces the feeling of a protective collar around those travelling in the back.
The Volvo C70 transforms smoothly from a cosy coupe into an open convertible. Just press a button and the three-piece steel roof folds away quickly (about 30 sec.) and silently, disappearing neatly into the boot.
