Volvo extends C70 range

Swedish manufacturing group Volvo has announced it is to offer more engine options for its C70 model and introduce a 136PS two-litre turbodiesel vehicle.

The coupe convertible now available as a diesel model may be ideal for a number of drivers which prefer to use this type of fuel – for many, it can be economical as well as working to enhance the pleasure of driving.

In addition, Volvo claims that the two-litre diesel variation can offer cleaner emissions and a quieter drive when it hits showrooms in the autumn.

It has a top speed of 127 mph and goes from zero to 62 mph in 11 seconds, proving to be a formidable force in the acceleration department.

Meanwhile, the convertible roof is a tempting feature for those who like to enjoy the warmth of a sunny day. It retracts in 30 seconds so drivers can take advantage of the unpredictable British weather whenever they get the chance.

The first-generation C70 was launched in 1997, with the current second-generation model following in 2006.
