The Volvo C70 Convertible Experience

Recently I was asked, “What is the discerning woman driver looking for in a convertible?”

From a woman’s point of view head turning style and sleek lines are the first essentials. Followed by a luxurious leather interior designed for ultimate comfort.

Lots of easy to use gadgets including Blue Tooth; built-in Sat Nav; a terrific sound system; four comfortable seats, heated of course; air con and a spacious trunk for the designer shopping bags. Plus, to make life especially easy, a hard top that retracts in 30 seconds at the push of a button and disappears into the trunk.

Enter the Volvo C70 Convertible. The gleaming silver number I had the opportunity to drive and review matched all of my wish list in looks, and more because it is an absolute dream to drive.

– Quick acceleration
– Easy to handle, it glides
– Great to park – there’s a reverse warning alarm
– 6 gears but there is a choice of manual or automatic
– Everything is within easy reach including neat control buttons on the
steering wheel
– Plenty of leg room both front and back, and a high class sound system that performs perfectly whether the top is up or down.

There’s no need to be concerned about the safety features when the roof is down.

The Volvo C70 Convertible has a semi-rigid inflatable curtain to protect passengers if in a collision with the roof down, and pop-up rollover protection bars.

The Volvo C70 Convertible is not only a convertible, but a stunning coupé to boot.

I was totally seduced by this car.

All-in-all, the Volvo C70 is luxurious motoring at its best.
