2011 Volvo C70 Styling

8.0
Styling

The 2011 Volvo C70 benefits greatly from redesigned front fenders, headlights, and new LED taillights, which give it a crisper frontal appearance and bring the formerly bland coupe into sharper focus.

It looks equally good with the folding top up or down, and the interior delivers an appropriate refined and luxury appearance with Scandinavian design accents setting off the redesigned instrument panel.

The restyled 2011 Volvo C70 gets a little more aggression with its clean, conservative design. It’s attractive and appealing with the top up or down.
Most reviewers found the car appealing to look at, and the C70 is certainly many steps away from the legendary boxy Volvos of yore. Putting the retractable hardtop down (or up) provides its own sideshow, with onlookers pausing to watch as the roof separates itself into three pieces that nest together before dropping neatly below the rear-hinged rear deck lid.

Inside, Volvo's characteristic floating console design complements the aluminum trim and a generally contemporary look with aluminum trim. The console's sculpted wooden face is particularly noticeable, and Volvo's restrained use of wood--real wood, in a lighter tone than the usual dark, heavy, shiny stuff found in German sedans--gets high marks.
