Volvo revealed today the facelifted version of the C70 coupe-cabriolet, which borrows the new design line showed by the S60 Concept. According to the manufacturer, the new vehicle carries redesigned front wings to give the car a wedge shape, new headlights and larger intakes, in order to bring a new aggressive look to the stylish cabrio.
We have carefully redesigned the front and rear of the car so they harmonise more with the larger Volvo models. We have also increased the exclusiveness of the interior materials and trim details to enhance the feeling of luxury, explains Fedde Talsma, Exterior Chief Designer of Volvo Cars.
The rear of the car features now high-tech LED lamps, found also on the XC60 and larger lettering across the boot. Volvo also revised the interior of the car to create a more comfortable and luxury feel.
The instrument panels have been revised and now feature a wider, sleeker look with improved finish.
Under the hood we find four engines: the 2.4 turbo diesel with 180 hp and 400N/m of torque (capable of 42.8mpg and 174 g./km CO2); the 2.0D capable to develop 136 hp/320 Nm of torque (47.1mpg and 158 g/km CO2); T5 petrol engine with 230 hp and 320 Nm (31.7mpg and 209 g/km CO2); 2.4i with 170 hp/230 Nm (31.4 mpg and 215 g/km CO2).
