What's the used Volvo C70 sports like?

The Volvo C70 mixes and matches the best bits of both coupe and convertible models. The folding metal roof provides a closeted coupe environment when it's up, but you can drop the top at the push of button and enjoy the weather.

To call the C70 a four-seater is stretching the imagination because the back seats are big enough for children only, or small adults at a pinch. The boot is one of the biggest in this class when the roof is up, but, as soon as it's stowed, you get a small space that's tricky to load.

In order to accommodate the folding roof design, the C70 has piled on the pounds - it's one of the heaviest cars in its class. While this extra weight doesn't make it cumbersome or hard to drive, it's not as agile as used rivals such as the Volkswagen Eos, and the steering is short of feel. Think of it as a comfortable high-speed cruiser than a sharp, sporty number.
