volvo C70
Theres more than an open car here. Theres the taste of the
sea that says youre on vacation. Theres the sight of the peak
that makes you push on. Theres the sound of a laugh that
makes you laugh. Theres the incomplete sentence thats
completely understood. Theres the wind using the clouds
to keep the stars shiny. Theres the look of love. Theres the
scent of fantasy. Theres the slap of reality. There are five
senses that trigger emotions. There are emotions that inform
rationality. Theres a sixth sense that knows this already.
Theres common sense, of course. And theres a Volvo C70.
Thats why you drive one.
What this car does to inspire your travels and make real your dreams,
it does with the sky as your witness. This is where the emotional and the
physical intersect: where the art and power of clean Scandinavian design
come to be a spectacular convertible and a stylish coupe.
Emotions may drive us,
but you get to steer.
Where to? As you discover new roads and rediscover favorite
journeys, expect a high level of comfort as well as exhilaration at
every turn. Grip the supple steering wheel and settle into one of
the worlds most comfortable automobile seats. Youll recognize
the cabins elegance as a testament to simplicity and a model of
ergonomic excellence, yet sophisticated onboard technology like
Bluetooth® connectivity with streaming audio and the available
Volvo navigation system are quietly at work and close at hand.
The sky is not the only place to
find stars.
From the wheels up youll discover first-class comfort, world-class safety
and form that beautifully serves function. At first glance youll notice Volvo
design details such as the headlamps that sweep back gracefully, yet seek
out protectively with Active Dual Xenon headlamps*, and the rear lamps
that include state-of-the-art Adaptive Brake Lights that rapidly flash to
warn cars behind when you have to brake harder than normal. Ever so
stellar, nothing shines brighter than legendary Volvo safety.
* Included in the optional Dynamic Package and Inscription Package
A magic carpet for the modern world.
Enjoy smooth sailing with the top up or down. The stiff, reinforced car body of the
Volvo C70 enables the advanced suspension system to sense and predictably cope
with all types of road surfaces. Whats more, the informative electro-hydraulic steering
responds immediately to your commands, while even the rear wheels will turn slightly
to help you glide through corners.
What makes a moment sensational?
Moments are measured, in part, by their
ability to recall a sound, taste, smell, touch
or sight. A journey with the top down, with
all senses engaged, seems to increase a
moments chance of being sensational.
And being sensational is okay with us.
A short cut to the center of attention.
The well-appointed cabin of the Volvo C70 seats four travellers in total comfort. Elegant
simplicity and tasteful detailing are the hallmarks of sophisticated Scandinavian design and
beautifully represented here with Volvos real aluminum inlays and Volvos genuine chrome-
free leather. Up front, the unique floating center stack is also available in Volvos real wood
and presents simple controls for information, entertainment, comfort and more. In the back,
the rear-seat passengers can waive to the crowd while enjoying plenty of room and backrests
with a comfortable tilt.
Put the top down. Turn the stereo up.
Life is simple again.
Music has a friend in Volvos modern sound systems. With talent in abundance, here
youll find a choice of two excellent systems - each calibrated especially for the
interior of the Volvo C70 (top-up and top-down). Each system features a CD player
and HD radio as well as an auxiliary input so you can plug in a portable music player.
For those with an iPod® or MP3 player, there is a USB and iPod® music Interface or
Bluetooth® streaming audio available to make your playlists appear in the center
console display. And to make things ever so simple, all systems can be controlled
from buttons on the steering wheel.
Premium Sound. Total immersion.
This is an audiophiles dream. When you choose the Premium Sound system* you are
taking center stage - surrounded by gloriously accurate sound reproduction provided by
world-class components. Finessed by Dolby® Pro Logic® II Surround - which utilizes a
special center loudspeaker and sophisticated sound processing - the Premium Sound
system ensures that every passenger enjoys a well-balanced stereo presence regardless
of their seating position (a remarkable achievement considering how nobody sits in the
middle of the car). Whats more, an extremely efficient digital Class D amplifier powers
twelve perfectly matched loudspeakers with superior transient response and pure
dynamics. But thats not all. Included are two subwoofers (for a total of 910 watts!) and
you have a convertible with a sound system that can blow the roof off.
* Included in the Platinum Trim Level
A marvel of engineering eclipsed
only by the beauty it reveals.
The three-piece retractable hardtop is a marvel of engineering. Youll soon
discover this for yourself because as the roof automatically goes up, so will the
corners of your mouth. In fact, its hard not to smile. Just push a button on the
center console and the retractable top performs a synchronized metamorphosis
that seems to inspire applause. And with the insulated roof hidden in the trunk,
theres still room in there for your weekend getaway luggage. From hardtop coupe
to open-air convertible in less than thirty seconds - with a grin that lasts much
longer. Having two dream cars on one set of wheels is a beautiful thing.
Attractive, inviting, yet very exclusive
- especially when locked.
Perhaps because it is built in Sweden, so close to the North Pole, this beautiful
Volvo C70 has a certain undeniable magnetism. But with this magnetism comes a
responsibility we take seriously - because Volvo safety doesnt stop when you park
your car. With the hardtop up, this car provides a much higher level of anti-theft
protection than an ordinary convertible. And with keyless drive*, you can unlock doors
as you grasp the handle and start the car with the key still in your pocket or handbag.

Innovated for your enjoyment,
the Volvo safety technologies will
protect more than the fun of driving.
Across the world, Volvo equals safety. And that comes with good reason, because few
carmakers can match our record of safety innovations and the commitment for safety that
has guided us for more than 85 years. Of course, this makes us extremely proud. But were
not satisfied. Because we know what we want to achieve: zero accidents. This huge task
calls for innovative thinking and a brand new approach to the way we design cars. Good
news is weve already come a long way. For starters, our cars are more fun and engaging to
drive than ever (because a bored driver will never be a safe driver). Neither is the technology
needed any figment of the imagination - some are already available. This means driving a
Volvo today is like having a first peek at a very exciting automotive future - a future where
passionate engineering and design do more to help you get the most out of life.

Designed to catch the light brilliantly,
this car also reflects a promise.
Thankfully, the automotive industry is moving away from fantasyland to the real world. Our
journey towards a better environment started already in the early 70s. Then we were among
the first carmakers to acknowledge the environmental downside of cars and to do something
about it. Since then we are constantly innovating to reduce the environmental impact of the
cars and how we make them.
In the near future we will introduce new technology such as plug-in hybrid vehicles that will
further reduce CO2 emissions and can be charged from a standard wall socket. And were
heavily engaged in the development of electrical vehicles - a technology that will dramatically
reduce the environmental footprint of our cars and make them even more fun to drive.
