Editor's Overview

A convertible when you want to let in the great outdoors and a coupe when you don't, the Volvo C70 has an automatic folding roof that discretely tucks itself away. Whatever your preference, the C70 offers plenty of safety features and – unlike others of its kind – two usable rear seats.

It's a well made car that's fun to drive

I love my convertible. It's sleek, cool, reliable and so much fun to drive.

- tim B

The car drives very well - both acceleration and braking are smooth. The speaker system produces quality music.

Hardtop convertible makes driving along the coast a wonderful experience.
