The C70 is Volvo’s entry into the increasingly popular -cabriolet market. With the hardtop roof up it’s a , while with it stowed in the boot, it’s a .

The latest generation of C70 was introduced in 2006 and is a well-specced luxury entry into the top-down market, with prices that reflect its premium appeal at almost 200,000AED.

The car seats four occupants and is powered by a 2.5-litre, five-cylinder engine that produces 227bhp and powers the front wheels through a five-speed automatic gearbox.

Just one trim level is available in the region – Prestige, which includes 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, leather seats and cruise control, as well as a six CD changer attached to a Dynaudio sound system. Rear parking sensors and Bluetooth phone connectivity is also included, as are bi-xenon headlights and electrically adjustable front seats. Satellite navigation is available as an option for 10,000AED.

The C70 was given a facelift for the 2011 model year, which went on sale internationally in early 2010.

Safety features – one of Volvo’s strong points – include Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, ABS with emergency brakeforce distribution and a rollover protection system, which deploys roll bars if the car is in danger of turning over. A whiplash protection system is installed in the C70’s front seats and there are front, side and curtain airbags. The Blind Spot Information System is also included, which warns the drive if there is a car next to the C70 but out of sight.
