Volvo C70 Convertible (99-05) - Review

Review by Parkers on

The C70 Coupé is now dead, but the Convertible version lives on. It makes a welcome alternative to the executive convertible sector competing with Saab, BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The C70 Coupé is now dead, but the Convertible version lives on. It makes a welcome alternative to the executive convertible sector competing with Saab, BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz. It's getting on a bit but still makes a great place to be for four people on a sunny day and is practical enough for year round usage.
