Volvo C70 2-litre turbodiesel

Volvo is extending the engine options in its stylish C70 coupe convertible range with the addition of the popular 136PS 2-litre turbodiesel. The 2.0D powerplant has already established itself as a firm favourite amongst Volvo customers in the Volvo S40, V50 Sportswagon and the C30 sportscoupe accounted for approximately 55% of their sales during 2006.  Volvo will now offer C70 drivers a combination of enhanced driving pleasure and impressive fuel economy. 

 

The 2-litre turbodiesel is the first 4-cylinder engine in the convertible and features second-generation common rail technology to provide cleaner emissions, improved fuel economy and a quieter drive.

With prices starting from £26,000 for the Volvo C70 2.0D S, this new model gives drivers a powerful 136PS and 320Nm of torque enabling a top speed of 127mph and 0 to 62mph in 11 seconds.  Power does not come at the expense of the economy; the Volvo C70 2.0D offers a strong 46.3mpg combined fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of 161g/km.

British summer weather is notoriously unpredictable, but Volvo’s C70 convertible ensures occupants don’t miss a minute of the sunshine. With a three-piece metal roof that retracts in 30 seconds enabling passengers to make the most of the sunny spells, Volvo’s four-seat C70 is the perfect car to whirl away the summer days.

The 2-litre diesel will fit alongside the current five-cylinder engines: D5 and the two petrol variants.  The Volvo C70 2.0D will arrive in UK showrooms later this autumn and is available to order now.
