Seating  - 2012 Volvo C70 Review - Reviews - Volvo C70

The C70 is a comfortable car if you're in one of the front seats. They have a bit of side bolstering Ч so you feel like you're sitting in the seats, not perched on top of them Ч but the bolstering isn't so restrictive it's likely to bother anyone.

Volvo says the C70 seats four, but whoever is in the rear seats had best be a child. I'm 6-foot-1 and I couldn't fit unless the front seat occupant gave up a lot of legroom. Also, with the top up I found my head Ч not just my hair Ч was brushing the roof. It was fairly claustrophobic back there. Other reviewers mentioned it was tricky to get in the rear seats with the roof up. Top-up visibility may be the best in this class, but the rear seating area isn't.
