Volvo C70 Convertible

Since its arrival in the UK in 1999, sales of the Volvo C70 Convertible have gone from strength to strength. Due to the increase in demand world-wide for the convertible, production of the Volvo C70 Coupe has, after six years, come to an end.


As part of its 2003 makeover the convertible has been given revised front and rear lights as well as a new black ‘egg-crate’ grille. 16" Ceres alloy wheels and a wind deflector are now fitted as standard.

Specification for the GT derivatives includes a computerised information system, leather steering wheel, as well as the outstanding Dolby Pro-Logic Surround Sound stereo system which comprises a 3 CD changer and nine speakers, and 17" Cratos alloy wheels.

As well as the increased specifications, Volvo customers have additional peace of mind knowing that their vehicles are equipped with the very latest safety features including ROPS (Rollover Protection System), WHIPS (anti whiplash) seats, dual stage airbags and a rigid safety cage.


Volvo has increased the power of the 2.4T from 193bhp to 200bhp and the T5 GT from 240 to 245bhp. The revised engines mean there is no increase in fuel consumption or CO2 emissions thanks to Volvo’s latest digital engine management systems.
