Volvo has streamlined and simplified the offerings on the 2011 C70 convertible coupe, with only a single powertrain and more features fitted as standard. The 2011 Volvo C70 has a base price of $39,950, which now includes leather seats and Sirius satellite radio, among other .
Standard features include dual-position adjustable front headrests, newly styled 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, and integrated fog lights. Four separate options packages make up the majority of the upgrades, along with a handful of standalone options.
The Dynamic option package bundles dual xenon headlights that swivel to light the road around curves with two appearance options: 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and a three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with aluminum inlay. The complete package is $1,000.
The most expensive options group, the Multimedia package at $2,600, includes both an in-dash navigation system with real-time traffic information and a Dynaudio premium sound system with Dolby ProLogic II Surround Sound and 12 speakers, including a pair of active subwoofers, each with its own 130-watt amplifier. Alternately, a portable navigation system is a standalone option for $750.
The Convenience package, for $1,000, is made up of keyless entry, rear parking assist, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with an integrated compass, and an integrated garage-door opener.
Finally, the $900 Climate package includes heated front seats, headlight washers, rain and humidity sensors, and interior air-quality filtering.
Other standalone options include the Blindspot Information System for $700, the appealing "Nordic light-wood inlays" for the interior, at $150, and a number of special paint colors from $550 to $675. (The Flamenco Red Metallic on our test car was a real show-stopper.)
