The Volvo C70’s has a wonderful understated elegance. Its clever 3 piece folding hardtop allows it a sleek shape and very much the look of a proper coupe with it up. With the roof down it’s a pleasant drive and an improvement over the previous model however the ride is not the smoothest and it is not a car which likes to be pushed around the bends. Both cabin and boot are spacious with the roof up but with it down it can be a fiddle to gain any kind of access to the remaining luggage space. All in all a very stylish and well equipped offering.
The 2010 re-design of the C70 brings a more curvacious but less sophisticated look and a redesigned interior.
