The Car Guide rating 75%(view ratings)
Sweden’s C70 convertible is still very similar to what it was when it launched in 2006, so a major overhaul is expected by the end of the year. In the meantime, a 2.5L 5-cylinder engine generating 227 horsepower and 236 lbs.-ft. of torque powers the vehicle. Only one transmission, a 5-speed automatic, is available. The C70’s competition includes the Audi A5 and the BMW 3 Series.
