Volvo Extends C70 With the Four-Cylinder, 2-Liter Turbodiesel
16 July 2007
Volvo is extending the engine range in the Volvo C70 with a 2-liter turbodiesel, making this the first four-cylinder engine in the convertible. Volvo also offers the 2.0D engine in the S40, V50 and C30 models.
The four-cylinder turbodiesel has a power output of 136 hp (100 kW) and delivers 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. The C70 2.0D has a fuel consumption of 6.1 l/100 km (39 mpg US) combined, with CO2 emissions of 161 g/km.
Acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 11.0 sec and top speed is 205 km/h (127 mph).
A Diesel Particulate Filter is standard.
The four-cylinder turbodiesel will be a very popular choice, especially in Europe where it will account for 20 percent of total C70 sales.—Fredrik Arp, President and CEO of the Volvo Car Corporation
Volvo Cars expects sales of the Volvo C70 2.0D to reach about 2,000 units a year—which means that one out of ten C70s sold worldwide will have the four-cylinder turbodiesel. The first cars will reach the showrooms during autumn 2007.
