|Model Overview: 2008 Volvo C70
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price
C70 T5: $39,240
Subtle refinements for the 2008 model year keep the Volvo C70 at the forefront of the mid-priced luxury convertible segment. Inspired by Scandinavian design, the interior is now fitted with standard Laminated Oak real wood on the signature ultra-slim center control panel, center console and door handle surrounds. A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TMPS), Automatic Hazard Warning and Emergency Brake Lights have been added to the lengthy roster of standard C70 safety equipment. And Sovereign Hide premium leather seating surfaces is a new option.
Driving pleasure adds another dimension to the C70 with its standard turbocharged T5 engine. For 2008, output for the 2.5-liter light-pressure turbo powerplant has been increased from 218 to 227 horsepower at 5,000 rpm while torque remains at 236 lb.-ft. from 1,500 to 4,800 rpm. The flat torque curve puts the power to the front wheels evenly and makes the car highly responsive.
The Volvo C70 continues to offer the best of both worlds. It's a modern convertible with classic proportions, four comfortable seats and a three-piece retractable hardtop. The C70 can be transformed seamlessly from a coupe into a convertible. The retractable hardtop folds away quickly and smoothly into the trunk. Apart from the flexibility offered by the retractable hardtop it also makes for a quieter, more comfortable coupe. The large rear window glass offers outstanding outward visibility and improves body rigidity.
