The Volvo C70 is every inch a Volvo and that extends from the exceptional comfort of its seats to its satisfying on-road manners. While no one will find the C70...
offers the precise handling and exhilarating performance of some of its top competitors, it does a more-than-creditable job of finding the right balance between ride and handling for most luxury coupe-convertible drivers.
Though acceleration is more than adequate, frankly we wished the 2.5-liter five-cylinder T5 engine with light-pressure turbocharging produced more than its advertised 218 horsepower. Torque is adequate at 236 pound-feet in what is a flat "curve" from 1500 to 4800 rpm, but a little more horsepower would turn the C70 from a satisfying ride to a thrilling one.
