 “The C70 is a true icon in our model range. The Inscription is based on our human-centricDesigned Around You philosophy, offering those who love convertibles and coupes a beautifully detailed version with a lot of curb appeal,” says Doug Speck, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at the Volvo Car Corporation.

Under the hood

The C70 Inscription boasts a turbocharged five-cylinder T5 with 250 hp and 273 ft-lbs. of torque, and will be available in two colours: Black Sapphire (Metallic) and Ice White (Solid).

The 18-inch wheels enhance the look of the Swedish convertible. This expressive version of the “Midir” rim comes in black with polished spokes and outer perimeter. Up front, the high-gloss paint on the grille and the LED Daytime Running Lights, both surrounded by contrasting chrome, give the C70 Inscription a distinctive “face”.
