Ownership cost

What used Volvo C70 sports will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Volvo C70 sports?

The weight of the C70 shows when it comes to fuel economy. The 2.4-litre petrol has an official average of 31.4mpg, but expect that to dip into the high 20s with real-world driving. The 2.5-litre petrol is only just behind at 31.0mpg, with the 2.0-litre and D5 diesels returning 46.3mpg and 38.7mpg respectively.

Only the diesels emit less than 200g/km of CO2, with the 2.0-litre at 161g/km and the D5 at 169g/km (193g/km as an automatic). Servicing costs are generally slightly lower than rivals, but insurance groups between group 28 - 35 means premiums may be steep. The C70 didn't sell as well as some rivals, and while that has protected residual values, they will slip over time.
