With only light revisions, the 2009 Volvo C70 now provides Bluetooth, aluminum interior trim and a rear seat-belt reminder. Available as a two-door coupe convertible with a high-end, power-retractable hardtop, when the C70's steel roof is up, it gives the car coupe-like styling, added rigidity and better noise isolation. The roof-lowering process is seamless and takes about 30 seconds to complete. Accommodating four passengers comfortably, the front-wheel drive C70 is powered by a turbocharged 2.5L inline five-cylinder engine generating 227 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, coupled to a standard six-speed manual transmission, while a five-speed automatic is optional. Fuel economy by EPA estimates for the automatic transmission is 18 mpg city/26 mpg hwy, while the manual transmission adds one mpg to the hwy mpg. Volvo C70 standard equipment provides typical modern convenience features, and option packages offer additional items, such as leather seating, a navigation system and an upgraded audio system. The C70 comes with the safety features you would expect from Volvo.Read more Read less

Attractive styling with retractable hard top; distinctive interior; safety features.
The 2009 Volvo C70 is one of only a few convertible models with a full-size back seat and space for four adults. It stands out from other convertibles for its solid construction and all-weather retractable hard top, and for its interior amenities, such as the class-leading Dynaudio sound system. As with other Volvo models, the C70 boasts some of the most advanced safety measures in its class, including an advanced air bag and roll bar system designed to protect occupants when the top is down.
