Vehicle Overview
The second-generation Volvo C70 features a three-piece retractable hardtop that transforms the car from coupe to convertible in just 30 seconds. While the new C70 is 5 inches shorter than its predecessor, it still offers seating for four adults. Sales of the new C70 begin in the U.S. in spring 2006. The previous soft-top version disappeared after the 2004 model year.

The two-door coupe features rounded corners and headlamps and rides slightly lower than the first-generation C70. The retractable hardtop is supported by a large rear windshield, which provides improved visibility over the original. Overall length is 180.3 inches, while the wheelbase extends 103.9 inches. The hardtop stows away seamlessly into the trunk at the touch of a button. Seventeen-inch aluminum wheels are standard, and 18-inch versions are optional.

The C70 seats four adults and features ergonomically shaped front seats. Pushing a button on the backrest of each front seat moves them forward to allow access to the rear seats. Power operation is standard on the driver's seat and optional on the front passenger seat. Storage areas accompany each seat, and a private locking system allows certain compartments to be locked with the key from the glove compartment. Long objects can be stored in the trunk by opening the ski hatch in the rear seat.

Audiophiles can choose a premium sound package that provides 910 watts of power and includes Dynaudio speakers. The standard sound system comes with eight speakers.

Under the Hood
The C70 holds a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-five-cylinder that generates 218 horsepower and 236 pounds-feet of torque. The engine mates with a five-speed-automatic transmission or a six-speed manual.

To compensate for the lack of a fixed roof, the A- and B-pillars, doors and sills have all been reinforced to defray the force of a collision. Side curtain-type airbags inflate upward from the doors in the C70. For added protection, these airbags deflate slowly in the event of a rollover — a feature Volvo claims is unique to the industry. Front passengers are also protected with side-impact airbags. An electronic stability system and antilock brakes are standard.
