Smooth handling and head-turning style go hand-in-hand in my 2009 Volvo C70. On a recent trip to Southern California, the C70 averaged 32.6 mpg. The car has plenty of low end acceleration and if one is not careful, it can creep up to 75-80 (or faster) mph very quickly. Interior styling, while conservative, is ergonomically sound. When the metal top is lowered, people stand and stare as the jigsaw puzzle neatly tucks into the trunk. For a convertible, the C70 does not disappoint in adequate trunk space. I carted two full sized reptile tanks and two pieces of luggage with no difficulty. Compared to an Audi A4 or BMW 3 series (both more expensive), the C70 holds its own very nicely!
Broad shouldered styling,a dynamic audio system, and the slick folding roof design should keep any convertible lover happy. Handling is another strong feature of the Volvo C70. Also, the C70 runs nicely on regular unleaded.
The wind deflector should not have to be purchased as an accessory. The rear turn signals need to be vertically increased in size. Cream colored leather seats are fine, but the accompanying white floor mats show dirt and grime immediately. Charcoal colored mats would have been a much better idea.
