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.
