After one month, this is my favorite Volvo in initial quality and design.
I have owned a 850 GLT and currently own an S80.
The C70 is quieter at interstate speeds than my S80 and my wife and I feel like we are in a snug, safe, comfortable cocoon when driving.
It's just plain fun to drive and we also like the head-turning effect.
As a slightly older driver (71) I really like the blind spot information system and the automatic bending headlights.
My wife loves the comfort and visibility when riding in the back seat because a grandchild demands the front.
The C70 is full of nice touches; for example, the one centimeter that the windows automatically lower and raise when opening the doors to aid in sealing the interior.
Two very minor ones.
I miss the small plastic clip on the windshield used for holding passes.
I also like to position my hand on the bottom center of the steering wheel and the current design does not permit this.
