Volvo C70

Volvo is launching today the first 2-litre turbodiesel four-cylinder engine in the convertible. "The four-cylinder turbodiesel will be a very popular choice, especially in Europe where it will account for 20 percent of total C70 sales. The engine offers a very attractive combination of fuel economy and driving pleasure," says Fredrik Arp, President and CEO of the Volvo Car Corporation.

Volvo unveiled this week-end in Munich the 2008 XC70. The all wheel drive Volvo XC70 is all about adventure and an active life. Something it has in common with the near 30,000 visitors to the show.

Volvo has announced today pricing for its 2008 model year lineup. The 2008 Volvo vehicle line has undergone enhancements to its model mix along with the introduction of the exciting C30. Other highlights include the addition of the new T6 turbocharged engine in the S80 luxury sedan, while the S40 sport sedan and V50 sportwagon receive major appearance updates and a bump in horsepower from 218 to 227. Later in 2007 Volvo will announce pricing for the all-new V70 and XC70 wagons. (...)

Apart from the flexibility offered by the retractable hardtop it also makes for a quieter, more comfortable coupe. The large rear window glass offers outstanding (...)
Metal-roofed convertibles are sturdier, safer, and offer better handling and a dramatically quieter ride than any ragtop. They are sexy, unsafe, pricey, cramped, and eminently unsuitable for families. As a result, many prospective car buyers just glance at them longingly in the showroom before driving off in a minivan or crossover. But safety is increasingly less of a factor. That’s because these days auto makers offer convertibles with the sensuality of a ragtop and the solidity of a (...)

Sporty at the front, aggressive at the rear - so say the creators. Two front spoiler flaps add a dynamic character to the design.

An innovative novelty is the cornering light kit. (...)
