lowering the top cuts ample trunk space in half
Car and Driver

Volvos have long been known for their fantastic seat comfort, and the C70 upholds that reputation
Kelley Blue Book

the rear seat is a token gesture

Fit and finish in the interior is impressive, with high-quality materials that look and feel good. The front seats are incredibly comfortable and supportive, in sharp contrast to the cramped rear seats. Full-size adults won't tolerate more than short trips in the back, thanks mostly to a shortage of leg room.

Kelley Blue Book finds the front seats excellent, noting that "Volvos have long been known for their fantastic seat comfort, and the C70 upholds that reputation." The Detroit News offers praises for the "beautifully crafted leather seats that hold you in place snugly but don't try to squeeze you like a grandmother heading back to Alaska for a year." says the 2010 Volvo C70 "seats four adults and features ergonomically shaped front seats," but ConsumerGuide notes that the "rear seat is a token gesture...shaped for two only," and short on leg room so that it is "very tight for most adults and many teens," adding that "entry and exit are for contortionists."

There's plenty of cargo room in the trunk-as long as the top is up, a full 12.8 cubic feet of storage space is available. With the top down, however, it's cut to just 6 cubic feet, just enough for two sets of golf clubs, but behind the rest of its class. Despite the cargo-robbing nature, the top operates smoothly with a foot on the brake and the touch of a button, stowing in the trunk in 30 seconds.

ConsumerGuide points out that even once the top has reducesd available cargo space, "a couple of golf bags or medium suitcases still fit." adds that "objects can be stored in the trunk by opening a pass-thru between the two rear seating positions," helping expand the limited trunk space. Interior storage space isn't great, however-ConsumerGuide says "the door map pockets barely hold standard gas-station maps."

Kelley Blue Book finds the 2010 Volvo C70 to be "a quiet, cozy closed coupe in a rain shower and a wide-open convertible in the sun," and ConsumerGuide echoes that top-down civility, praising the cabin as "solidly assembled with high-quality materials," which help the C70 to deliver "little top-down wind buffeting," even though "road roar is always audible with the 18-inch tires, but isn't overbearing."

Conclusion's research reveals that most reviewers agree the 2010 Volvo C70's interior build and material quality is generally high.

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.
