Expert Quotes:

The C70 almost looks like a completely new car.
Road & Track

Significant redesign [is] cause to give the C70 a second look.
Automobile

A new front-end design ... takes the C70's visage from dull to dashing, thanks to sleeker headlamps and a more chiseled appearance.
Edmunds



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.

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.

    Conclusion

    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.

    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.
