Volvo C70 Accessories & Parts

About Volvo C70

Volvo presented Volvo C70 at the 1996 Paris Motor Show, though it went on sale only in 1998. It came as a two-door coupe in 1998-2002 and as a two-door soft top convertible in 1998-2005. The C70 broke the tradition of boxy, linear designed Volvo parts. Comfortable and competent, with elegant styling, a soft top convertible was designed for a family of four to provide stylish looks, great performance and irreproachable driving. Being the first modern convertible Volvo ever made, the C70 is based on the 850 model. C70 was engineered by Tom Walkinshaw Racing, its chief designer was Peter Horbury. This model was available with both low-pressure (2,4L) and high-pressure (2,0L and 2,3L), 5-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engines and manual and automatic transmissions. The top performance engine provided 236 hp, while less powerful provided 190 hp.

For its first generation, Volvo C70 presented a subcompact package, measuring in with a wheelbase of 104,7 inches for coupe in 1998-1999, but increased to 104,9 inches in 2000-2002 and 104,9 inches for softtop convertible in 2000-2002, but increased to 105 inches in 2003-2005. This model was 185,7 inches long in 1998-2002 and 186 inches long in 2003-2005. With a width of 75,1 inches, the coupe was 55,7 inches tall and the soft top convertible was 56,3 inches tall. The convertible featured automatic (pop-up) rollover hoops, an electrically-heated glass rear window, seat belt pre-tensioners, boron steel reinforced A-pillars. As for safety features, it had front and side airbags. The convertible top was available in four colors, being fully automatic and operated by a single dashboard-mounted button. Two-tone leather interior with wood trim and Dolby Pro Logic I stereo with 3-disc integrated changer unit was offered for the first generation models.

The second generation C70 went on sale in 2006 and came as a retractable hardtop. Replacing the coupe and convertible, the C70 for the first time uses naturally-aspirated gasoline engine with common-rail injection and variable geometry turbocharger. It utilizes the Volvo P1 platform . With the wheelbase of 103,9 inches, the new C70 decreased dimensions, but increased its weight for 220 lbs. As for the safety systems, they include a door-mounted side impact protection inflatable. An updated version of the C70 was introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, though it went on sale in 2010. The changes to the car parts were minor- the redesigned front end, wider instrument panel, and new rear LED lamps.

Featuring a smooth, stylish body and luxurious comfort throughout the cabin, the Volvo C70 is one vehicle that deserves all the attention it gets. It's got the "pop" in performance drivers love without the excess noise. Roomy seating, tech-savvy amenities, and refined handling also play a role in what has made this model such a desired commodity. Whether for a night out on the town or for a calming afternoon cruise, the Volvo C70 represents the very best in a personal luxury vehicle.

Seat cover design and construction have progressed a great deal in recent decades.

1998 Volvo C70 | Posted by George | (Kenilworth, NJ)

This is my replacement strut mount bushing from CARiD. The first one failed within 3 thousand miles (9months). After some consistent pleading i got the replacement and its only been a few weeks since the install and i would like to see it last before i give it a thumbs up. The strut mount busing is the intermediate bushing offered for my vehicle which looked similar to the original that was replaced.
