ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesOperation 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.
Worst FeaturesImproved navigation system interface.
