The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The C70 fills the space of the former Coupe (discontinued in 2002) and the Convertible (discontinued in 2004). It's less sleek than the cars it replaces, and while it's a little plain, the C70's shape is clean and well detailed with a minimum of clutter.
