Volvo C70 2020 Redesign And Review – Volvo C70 2020
Droptops. Or ragtops. Or, to be formal, convertibles. It’s that time of year, again, time to go active al fresco.
Between now and June, convertible sales spike. This is it. This is aback the midlife crisis is anointed with the absolute absolute joys of amphitheater motoring. This is aback a advantageous few grab the abandon of active with their acme down, with the wind in their faces, with the morning dew on their cheeks.
Let’s face it: Absolute few bodies own or will anytime own a convertible, an amphitheater car. They’re not applied and they’re not cheap. But they are sexy. They are carefree. They are, as one of my favourite gearheads put it, “more fun than a four-barrel 351 Cleveland.”
A adolescent fan ability say they are sick, or mad hot, or sweet, or phat or that they rock. And – while best of the 1.5 actor bodies who buy a new agent in Canada anniversary year will never own one, never alike drive one – abandoned a hardtopper afterwards a anatomy can abjure the address of a convertible.
So bang on the sunscreen. It’s cheap. And arguments adjoin convertibles – that it is a two-month car in Canada – are not necessarily on the mark any more. There is still the odd “ragtop” convertible out there with a bolt roof accurate by a metal frame, but best today are year-round rides with a folding auto that tucks neatly out of the way in the back.
Convertibles with cheaply fabricated roofs are a affair of the past. The Mazda MX-5s and Jaguar XK convertibles of the apple may accept bolt roofs, but the abstracts are annihilation but bargain-basement. From the central of the Jag, for instance, it’s boxy to acquaint that the accomplished roof fabricated of layered bolt isn’t permanent.
As for the folding hardtops such as the 2009 Infiniti G37 convertible and its ilk, they are abstruse masterpieces. With anniversary of them, from the Volkswagen Eos to the Volvo V70, the roof feels abiding aback up, creating a coupe-like ride in winter, one chargeless of leaks. But aback the sun comes out this time of year, abroad goes the lid in seconds, with the advance of a button.
Okay, abundant of the abstracted stuff; let’s get austere here. To buy a convertible is to accomplish a appealing adamantine best with your dollars. So let’s dig into some facts and bear some advice.
First, let’s allocution about the absolute top of a droptop. You accept three capital choices: vinyl, the cheapest; cloth, which is added big-ticket but richer and quieter aback the roof is up and in place; and a folding hardtop.
Open-air cars with folding roofs are not all badly big-ticket and not all appear from Germany. The Pontiac G6 GT ($36,995) and Chrysler Sebring ($34,795 base) are from Detroit, for instance, and can both be had for abundant beneath than the acquaint price.
Then we accept this little affair alleged “cowl shake.” Top down, the windshield of a convertible about all-overs and rattles aback you cantankerous railroad advance or hit a bang in the road.
You can’t atom cowl agitate with the lid up, so if you’re shopping, booty your analysis drive with the top tucked away. Acquisition a amplitude of bad alley and see if the bang and cycle is a botheration in the car you anticipate you like. You’ll affliction it if you don’t.
Also anticipate adamantine about how abounding bodies and how abundant clutter you’ll appetite to booty around. Roadsters, two-seat convertibles, are all about actuality adventurous with the ride and accept little allowance for annihilation added than the disciplinarian and passenger. Convertibles with aback seats – the Sebring, the G37, BMW’s 3-Series convertible, the G6, the Saab Aero, the Volvo C70, the Eos and others – accept a aback bench with added or beneath abundant allowance for two adults.
But block amplitude in any convertible presents a problem. The top needs to go somewhere, right? Pack ablaze if you’re active with the wind in your hair.
And speaking of storage, attending for lockable amplitude aural the cabin. You’ll appetite it if you’re parking and plan to leave semi-valuable items such as sunglasses on lath aback you’re abroad accepting a cappuccino at a sidewalk cafe. Note, too, that a folding auto convertible can’t be carved accessible with a abridged knife, and alike the soft-top rides accept appealing athletic roofs these days.
That’s security. For safety, the newer convertibles out there about action the abounding area of airbags, antiskid devices, antilock braking, blast aegis and abounding additionally accommodate pop-up cycle confined for rollover protection.
Finally, if you’re out for a analysis drive, absolutely accord it a go. Drive the car a lot with the roof off, in a agglomeration of altered circumstances, over altered anchorage and at altered speeds. Note wind blow in the berth and annoyances such as a aerial seatbelt.
But let’s be honest: a convertible is not a left-brain, analytic purchase, area the facts rule. You can try your best to be applied and safe, but in the end we buy convertibles to amuse the appropriate academician – the feeling, the abrupt allotment of our being.
If you can allow it, that’s not such a abhorrent way to go.
THE SAFETY STORY
TOP SAFETY PICKS
All three acceptable a “good” appraisement in front, ancillary and rear blast tests. Ancillary airbags and adherence ascendancy were included in the models
Chrysler Sebring, Mitsubishi Eclipse: “Good” for advanced and ancillary impact, “marginal” for rear impacts.
Ford Mustang: “Acceptable” for advanced impacts, “good” for ancillary impacts, “poor” in rear impacts.

And the IIHS says crash-test after-effects appearance that abounding avant-garde convertibles atone able-bodied for the abridgement of a abiding roof.
“For example, the 9-3 convertible achieves the aforementioned acceptable front, side, and rear blast analysis ratings as the four-door auto version,” says the convention in its best contempo abstraction of convertible safety.
By deepening the vehicle’s capital structures, it is accessible to atone for “the abutment that’s absent in removing the roof,” adds the IIHS, acquainted that a big amount tag does not necessarily buy the safest car.
The Chrysler Sebring and Mitsubishi Eclipse acceptable “good” ratings in advanced and ancillary blast tests and both are amid the least-expensive new convertibles.
Roll confined are addition assurance affection advised to abate blow in a rollover accident. In some cars, the confined are anchored in place, while in others they arrange automatically if sensors ascertain the achievability of a rollover.
Pop-up cycle confined are accepted on the Saab 9-3, Volvo C70, Volkswagen Eos, BMW 3-Series and Audi A4, to name several activated by the institute.
The convention additionally addendum that folding hardtops aren’t as adamant as anchored roofs and should not be accepted to advance crashworthiness.
“Foldtops are for comfort, not safety,” says the institute.

Not the best adult convertible, as far as the folding auto army goes.

You’ll pay beneath if you boutique the discounts and incentives. The Mustang is one of my favourites. It’s a handsome design, with a archetypal Mustang look. The aback bench is a bit cramped, but you can clasp two bodies aback there. The anatomy anatomy is solid, so ride and administration are appealing acceptable at this price. The berth is accurately done, with absolute adorable gauges. And the 210-horsepower V-6 agent has affluence of scoot. This is my aces amid the under-$30,000 crowd.

The soft-top Wrangler is not a acceptable convertible, but it’s a lot of fun and absolute affordable. Again, boutique the discounts. The abject archetypal comes with a 3.8-litre, 202-hp V-6. Jeep alien its aboriginal four-door Wrangler in October, 2006, and it’s been a hit. This may be the absolute best buy in a ancestors convertible.

Then booty off the doors and you accept an amphitheater ride with allowance for up to three adults in the aback seat. At that, you’ll still accept allowance for a cooler, bank chairs and some bank bags. DOWNSIDE: BUMPY RIDE. UPSIDE: SPACE.
MAZDA MX-5 MIATA

It’s adamantine not to abatement in adulation with this little roadster. This is the third-generation adaptation of the MX-5 and it is accessible with an alternative folding hardtop. The accepted agent is a 167-hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder. The MX-5 is quick and active and small. The administration is crisp, the braking sharp.

And alike approved association will acquisition the basement for two is comfortable and there’s not abundant allowance in the trunk, either.
MINI COOPER CONVERTIBLE
Base price: $29,950
The 2009 Mini Cooper is stiffer than the beforehand generation, which makes ride and administration abundant added agreeable – not animated like the antecedent version.

MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER
Base price: $32,298

Booty note: the G6 has appropriate allowance with the top up, but with the folding auto down, the block has about no amplitude at all.
Base price: $29,055
With the Pontiac cast branch into oblivion, the Solstice will end up acceptable article of a collectible some day.

Base price: $33,715
Saturn, like Pontiac, is on its way out as a GM brand, so there is affluence of discounting. The Sky is pricier than the Solstice, its congenial twin, but bigger attractive and bigger equipped.
