2011 model year changes

For 2011, Volvo's C70 convertible gets thoroughly revised styling, with new rear styling and a more aggressive front-end appearance that better matches the rest of Volvo's current lineup. The C70 trades last year's rounded front end for a more wedge-like front styling that other recent Volvos have received. The front fenders have been reshaped for a more aggressive look, the grille appears lower and the headlamps now sweep back and upward, making the entire front end seem curvier. The back end has also been tucked for a more upright look, and the rear lights have been redesigned with LEDs. Inside, the instrument panel has been reshaped for a wider look and given new surfacing, while the gauge cluster is updated and the leather upholstery is now made of a softer leather called Sovereign Hide. The lineup of features is also a bit different. Most notably, the standard 6-speed manual transmission is no longer offered on the C70, leaving only the 5-speed automatic. Sirius satellite radio is now included on all models. On the outside, Flamenco Red Pearl paint is new.

Special features for 2011

Simply put, a lot of the C70's value lies in its excellent retractable hardtop roof; it allows quiet highway cruising for long-distance trips as well as tight, 4-season insulation. The C70 has just enough of a luxury-car personality to be enjoyable year round, no matter the task, yet when you drop the top it feels just sporty enough to make the most of fair-weather cruising. And with all the C70's protective measures and on-board technology, including the available blind-spot system that helps with visibility especially when the top is up, safety isn't at all the worry that it might be in some convertible designs. Those who want to load their vehicle with the latest features and gadgets will love the C70's lengthy options list. On the other hand, the C70's moderate price can be rapidly driven up by opting for even a few pricy upgrades.
