2012 Volvo C70 Convertible T5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

We had originally wanted to get a VW EOS but when we discovered the C70 everything changed. A few days ago we took delivery at the factory in Sweden and put 800+ miles on the car in two days. We commented that at the end of each day we were not tired or stiff like in our previous cars. Yes the controls for the Nav, phone and temp take a little to get used to, but after the first day they were intuitive. We like the smooth power and shifting this car has. Back roads or Autobahn were equally smooth and enjoyable. We bought the U.S. model and will take it back to the states when we go. The navigation system is great. It notified us of trouble and detoured us well before the slow down.


Favorite Features

Folding hard top. Driver position memory. Keyless entry & starting.


Suggested Improvements

One more 12v outlet.

Review

I spent long time comparing hard top convertibles, and I remain struck the the lack of awareness/appreciation for the C70 - as it ended up being a no-brainer choice from my standpoint. Priced up to $10K less than German competitors, while offering equal/better interior space, trunk space, safety features, comfort, build quality, reliability and styling. The C70 does give up a bit to its competitors in terms of performance - but with the Polestar upgrade it is more powerful than a 328i, and hardly underpowered. It doesn't have the handling of a BMW or Audi, but still fun to run through twisty roads and rides more comfortably. Overall the C70 has more going for it and is a great value.


Favorite Features

Operation of the retractable hard top is still a site to behold. Fantastic seats. Unbelievable safety features, e.g., roll bars that pop up in a crash and side curtain airbags that operate with the top down! Terrific styling inside and out. Premium audio option is best OEM audio system I've heard.


Suggested Improvements

Improved navigation system interface.
