The C70 has a power-operated metal folding top that works well. The car comes only with a turbocharged 2.5-liter, five-cylinder engine. Handling is sound but unexceptional. The ride is somewhat stiff. The interior is well finished. The C70 includes standard curtain air bags that deploy from the doors.

Pleasantly Suprised by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/05/2013. Trim: 2013 Volvo C70 T5 Premier Plus, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Rear leg room is great, by far better than any other convertible. Only front wheel drive covertible on the market to help when weather is not the best. Hard top convertible makes for a quiet ride with top up and is amazing to watch operate. Getting 28+ MPG with mostly in town driving. Volvo safety!!
Cons: Not many complaints so far. It's not a sports car so power lacks a little. However, it's my wife's car and perfect for around town cruising.
Overall review: This is my first Volvo but won't be my last. Very impressed so far. Premier Plus version is no frills but very solid. Drives like a much larger car than it is. Never thought I was ready to fit in the Volvo demographic; but, it is much better than I thought and expected.
