Safety and security is important to Volvo, and being one of the leaders in convertible safety, they definitely keep that reputation with the new C70.

Bluetooth® Technology is equipped in the C70 to make phone calls a lot easier, USB ports, iPod connection, and the Volvo On Call system gives the driver the option to activate the cabin heater by using SMS Text Messaging.
