The Volvo C70 is a two-door convertible that traces its roots back to the C70 coupe in 1997. In 1999, a soft-top convertible variant debuted. Today's C70 Convertible was launched in 2006 as a retractable hardtop convertible, based on the automaker's S40 platform. Still in its first generation, Volvo has upgraded the 2011 model with new exterior and interior styling. There is no longer a six-speed manual offering, and leather upholstery and Satellite Radio are now standard.

The C70 is offered in one trim level: the C70 T5. The automaker's sole luxury convertible is well-equipped with leather upholstery, full power accessories, eight-way power front seats, air conditioning with automatic dual-zone climate control, cruise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity, eight-speaker audio system, 17-inch alloy wheels, and more.

Volvo offers several option packages of bundled equipment. These include the Multimedia Package (upgraded 14-speaker audio system and a navigation system with real-time traffic); Convenience Package (keyless entry and parking sensors); Dynamic Package (18-inch wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, and sport steering wheel); and Climate Package (headlamp washers, rain-sensing wipers, heated front seats, and an air quality sensor).

The Volvo C70 is offered with one standard engine: a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder that is rated at 227 horsepower. Power is sent to the front wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. The EPA rates the fuel economy of the 2011 Volvo C70 between 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, depending on powertrain.

The 2011 Volvo C70 T5 starts with a base price of about $40,500.
