The 2010 Volvo C70 offers a wealth of features and options, including a standard high-performance sound system with CD and MP3 input, eight speakers, and a 160-watt amplifier. A Bluetooth phone interface, an iPod/USB connection, and a six-month subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio are also standard.
For 2010, the Volvo C70 adds a number of new features, including dual-position adjustable front headrests, newly styled 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, and a range of changes to package and stand-alone options. Edmunds notes that the 2010 Volvo C70 is "available in only one trim level, T5," and that it "comes well-equipped with most modern convenience features." According to Kelley Blue Book, highlights the C70's "integrated global positioning system (GPS) unit, heated front seats, leather or ultra-premium Sovereign Hide leather seats, and polished 18-inch, performance rubber-wrapped tires," which are other available C70 Volvo extras.
Another change for 2010 is the deletion of the Dynaudio Sound System package and its replacement with the Multimedia Package. Fortunately for audio lovers, the Dynaudio Sound System is still part of the new package, which includes 12 Dynaudio speakers, Dolby ProLogic II Surround Sound, plusand Volvo's hard-disk based navigation system with Real Time Traffic.
There's lots of praise to be found for the Dynaudio stereo system. Kelley Blue Book declares that no matter if it's "Green Day or Sinatra, music has rarely sounded as pure and clear as through the C70's audiophile-worthy system." Edmunds says simply that the Dynaudio system is "For music lovers."
ConsumerGuide points out that the convertible hardtop system is another of the C70's strongest features, providing a "well-built blend of top-down fun and fixed-roof security." Once a rarity, convertible hardtops are becoming more common, but as one of the first, the Volvo C70 is still one of the best in this regard.
The 2010 Volvo C70 presents an attractive set of standard and optional features that all reviewers praised.
