The C70 is an expensive car to buy and resale values aren’t as strong as for some rivals. That means it’ll cost you even more long-term. The petrol is very thirsty, and while the diesels are much cheaper to run on a daily basis, they can’t match their best rivals for fuel efficiency.
Volvo C70 Coupe quality & reliability
The C70 comes across as a classy car, thanks to a cabin that's well built from appealing materials. Everything feels built to last, although it's not unknown for the roof to rattle when it's in place. Volvo’s reliability record is so-so at best.
Volvo C70 Coupe safety & security
As you'd expect with a Volvo, the C70 is a safe car. It has six airbags, stability control and pop-up rollover bars. That said, it doesn’t have the company’s latest safety measures, like the pedestrian airbag you find on the V40. Deadlocks are standard across the range.
