Style  - 2012 Volvo C70 Review - Reviews - Volvo C70

There are three C70 T5 trim levels: base, Premier Plus and Platinum. Our test car was a Platinum with the Inscription option package. The Platinum trim includes a number of exterior and interior additions (see the levels compared here). The $3,900 Inscription option package adds 18-inch gloss-black wheels, active dual xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, a rear spoiler, aluminum sport pedals, a leather-covered handbrake lever and center armrest, and a sport steering wheel, among other things.

The Platinum trim includes navigation, Volvo's premium sound system, keyless drive and rear park assist, among other things. It's a $3,600 option package. The option packages were the major changes from the 2011 to 2012 model year, and you can compare the cars here.

Overall, the C70's styling drew solid marks both from me and from the other reviewers who drove it. The wheels, in particular, garnered consistent praise.
