Expert Quotes:

This powertrain is EPA-rated at 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined.
Edmunds





The 2011 Volvo C70 is fitted only with a five-speed automatic transmission paired to its 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual gearbox offered in previous model years is no longer available (although, confusingly, the EPA still has mileage ratings for that combination on its website).

The EPA rates the 2011 C70 at 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, for a combined rating of 23 mpg. That's something of an improvement over its mileage numbers in earlier model years, but it's still pretty low for what’s essentially a two-seat car with occasional seats in the back. Any number of four-door compact sedans offer far higher mileage ratings.

But no one who’s considering a coupe with a retractable hardtop for open-air motoring is likely to be cross-shopping the Volvo C70 against, say, a 2011 Hyundai Elantra, with its 40-mpg highway rating. For buyers deciding whether to treat themselves to the C70 convertible coupe, gas mileage is likely to be one of the least important factors.

Conclusion

The gas mileage of the 2011 Volvo C70 isn’t particularly noteworthy, but it’s hardly likely to be a first consideration for potential buyers.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
