2007 Volvo C70 T5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


On drive home from out of state, I got 30mpg with cruise control, even in strong wind. Overall, I average about 21-22mpg in mixed driving, which is not great, but for a heavy turbocharged car with wide tires, it's not bad. The top takes longer to retract/raise than other convertibles, but there is none that looks nearly as good while doing it. Plenty of power out of just 2.5 liter, gobs of torque so minimal downshifting even in mountains. Premium package included Dynaudio stereo, which has extraordinary fidelity at all volume levels.

Best Features

Flat torque curve; heated leather seats; AMAZING xenon headlight; ingeniously engineered roof system; Dynaudio sound system; Nordic interior design elements (waterfall of aluminum for center stack)

Worst Features

get rid of Michelin original equipment tires for some with better wet weather traction. I fault the tires, not the car.
