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

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.
