Despite Facelift, 2011 Volvo C70 Pricing Still Starts At $40,800

Although the restyled 2011 Volvo C70’s base price — $40,800, including destination — is practically unchanged from the 2010 model, an added $4000 of standard content may make it a better value.

For 2011, Volvo dropped the standard 6-speed manual transmission, opting instead to make the 5-speed automatic standard. 2011 C70s also receive Volvo’s premium “Sovereign Hide” leather trim and Sirius satellite radio at no charge.

Option packages largely mirror the 2010 model. A multimedia package, which adds a premium 14-speaker Dynaudio system, navigation, and Volvo’s real-time Map Care updates, runs $2600 — just as it did in 2010. The climate package still costs $900, and includes heated front seats, headlamp washers, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Volvo did increase the price of the Dynamic Trim package to $1000, which adds 18-inch aluminum wheels, Xenon headlights, and a sports steering wheel. A new convenience package, which also runs $1000, adds keyless ignition, Homelink, rear parking sensors, and an automatic-dimming rearview mirror with a built-in compass.

Standalone options include a new cranberry leather (no charge), blind spot detection system ($700), special Nordic Light Oak wood inlays ($150), and a wind blocker ($495). Metallic paint options run between $550 and $675, depending on the color.

Look for the new 2011 Volvo C70 to arrive at dealers stateside later this year.
