2010 Volvo C70
Set to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Volvo C70 is a four-seat convertible with a three-piece steel roof that comes with an updated exterior design. The 2010 Volvo C70 will be available with three petrol engines: T5 with 230 hp/320 Nm, 2.4i with 170 hp/230 Nm and 2.4 with 140 hp/220 Nm and two diesels: D5 (180 hp/400 Nm) and 2.0D (136 hp/320 Nm).
With its new front, the 2010 Volvo C70 reveals traces of the Volvo S60 Concept Car that was unveiled in early 2009. Thereby the C70 is upgraded to relate more closely to the design language of the larger cars in the Volvo model range Bodywork details such as the front wings have also been redesigned, contributing to the decidedly altered appearance. The nose is more wedge-shaped and has been given added three-dimensional depth by moving some elements of the front both longitudinally and vertically. The new headlamps and the décor around the foglamps, for instance, have been angled offset up and to the rear, at the same time as the detailing of the lower grille has been enhanced.
