From the exceptional comfort of its form-fitting bucket seats to its pleasant and predictable road manners, the 2012 Volvo C70 is every inch the car Volvo promises it to be....
Although it doesn't possess the extreme handling and acceleration of cars such as the BMW 335is convertible or Audi S5
Cabriolet, the C70 will prove more than sufficient for the vast majority of drivers. Until the 2012 models arrived in showrooms, part of the letdown for enthusiasts was the C70's comparatively low 227 horsepower produced by the convertible's sole engine choice, a 2.5-liter inline-5. So to help appease performance-oriented drivers, the range-topping T5 Inscription model receives a host of refinements for the same engine, yielding a 23-horsepower increase along with an additional 37 lb-ft of torque.
