Advantages Fast, safe, stylish, fun
The people who brought you slab-sided safety now give you style and speed. The C70 is as long as the V70 estate with which it shares its platform, but tricks the eye thanks to sculpted sides and narrowing lines front and rear - both firsts for Volvo.
Other raucous sounds come from the 2.5-litre, 240bhp T5 engine. It pulls well with a distinctive five-cylinder growl from low revs, but over 3,000rpm the turbo whistles and the C70 simply flies.
Slower versions of the C70 will come early in '98, but until then we're happy with the T5. It isn't cheap but it's unique - no other coupe offers the same blend of space, pace and safety.
