Review of the 2003 Volvo C70

  • Based on a platform that is a decade old, the first "out of the box" Volvo is in need of a redesign. However, its abundance of safety features, comfortable digs and smooth ride should still appeal to many.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Luxurious interior, plenty of safety and comfort features, smooth ride, turbocharged engines.

  • Cons

    Adding options quickly boosts the price, suspension isn't tuned for sporty handling, prone to torque steer during hard acceleration.

  • What's New for 2003

    For 2003, the C70 is only available in convertible form. Slight power increases are in store for both powertrains, with the LT engine now making 196 horsepower, an enhancement of six, and the HT engine producing 245, a boost of nine ponies over last year's output. The headlamps and taillamps have a jeweled effect, and the front grille is darkened. A rainbow of new colors -- Maya Gold, Ruby Red and Titanium Grey -- burst onto the scene.
