2010 Volvo C70 Facelift Revealed
The full list of specifications is yet to be revealed but, as you can see in the photo gallery below, the car is featuring restyled headlights and a wider grille, as well as new tail light design with LED strips and larger Volvo badge.
The current and the second generation Volvo C70 was launched on April 13, 2006 and was designed by John Kinsey. Since it's a Volvo, it comes with advanced safety features such as side impact protection and a brand new roll over protection technology mounted behind the back seats. Obviously, such safety features brought Volvo C70 the “Top Safety Pick” belonging to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The car is offered with multiple engine configurations, including two diesels and three petrols, ranging between 2.0- and 2.5-liter. The maximum power is generated by the 2.5-liter unit that develops 220 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque between 1,500 and 4,800 rpm. It helps the car sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 149.1 mph (240 km/h)
