2011 Volvo C70 Convertible Pricing Revealed

Follow Viknesh

The latest version of Volvo's ultra-chic C70 Convertible was first revealed late last year but the new drop-top is set to go on sale in the coming months and we can reveal today that it will be priced from $40,800 plus a destination charge of $850.

Despite the slightly higher sticker than the outgoing model, Volvo has packed its latest 2011 C70 Convertible with more standard features including a 5-speed automatic transmission, Sirius Satellite Radio and "Sovereign Hide" leather trim. Many of these were optional extras previously and in total represent an approximate saving of $4,000, according to Volvo.

The C70 was updated slightly for the 2011 model year, receiving a refreshed exterior that picks Volvo's new corporate look as well as an upgraded cabin with a new instrument panel design.

The "Dynamic Trim" package comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon active headlights and a sports steering wheel. Opt for the $1,000 "Convenience" package and you get keyless drive, a HomeLink remote garage door opener, rear park assist and an integrated compass. Other optional extras include metallic paint at $550 and a blind-spot information system for $700.

While overseas the 2011 Volvo C70 Convertible is offered with several gasoline and turbodiesel engines, in the U.S. it comes with the range-topping 2.5-liter T5 five-cylinder turbocharged mill with 230 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque on tap.

  1. Doesn't this look a bit like the new proposed Jaguar roadster????? Or is it vice versa????? How unoriginal!!!!! The Ford Iosis concept still sputs out designs here and there. LOL!!!!!

  2. I'm very sorry to see the manual transmission dropped - That combined with the new front end drops this car off the list.

  3. I couldn't agree more with bepsf. The loss of the manual tranny is going against the grain of being sporty. Even Buick is developing new cars with manual trannies. Buick for gosh sake!

  4. I've always been a fan of the C70 (and Volvo in general), but them being owned by the Chinese now is a deal breaker for me. And 230hp made the C70 a contender in the segment in 1998, but it is seriously under-gunned against its traditional adversaries (Mercedes CLK 'vert, etc) today.

  5. Good job, volvo... looks better, fresher and sexier... but still looks like a volvo. looks well proportionate too, while the current generation seems to have a bit of a short chin... maybe it's just me, but the c70 looks too big from the back for such a short c30 front end, doesnt it?
