C70 in the Market  - 2012 Volvo C70 Review - Reviews - Volvo C70

The C70 is a good luxury convertible, but it's in a class where good might not be enough. Competitors Ч notably the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Ч do a better job of protecting those in the car from buffeting with the top down. While the C70 isn't pokey, others offer a more rewarding driving experience. The C70 is a decent compromise.

Aside from driving and top-down performance, shoppers should consider how often they plan to use the rear seats, race through curvy roads for sheer driving thrills and lower the roof. If the answer to all those questions is "not often," the C70's comfort, style and top-up visibility make it a worthy consideration.
