Volvo has just released images of its facelifted C70 convertible ahead of its debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.
The new look is fresh and includes swept-back headlights and a larger trademark face, overall it’s an even further departure from the automaker’s boxy past. At the back, a new rear lamp design includes fashionable LED lighting, a reshaped bumper, and more pronounced “Volvo” badging on the boot decklid.
Inside, the instrument panel has been redesigned, giving it a wider, sleeker look and a new textured surface.
It wouldn’t be a Volvo without killer safety features these include an advanced body structure and several solutions that are unique in the world of convertibles. The lack of a fixed roof has been compensated by structural reinforcements and sophisticated technology.
The powertrain lineup will consist of several gasoline and turbodiesel units ranging in output from about 136 to 230 horsepower. The range will start with the 2.0D turbodiesel developing 136 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque and will top out with a 2.5-litre T5 turbocharged gasoline model with 230 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque on tap.
