Volvo Canada presents limited edition C70 Inscription model to convertible connoisseurs

VOLVO CANADA - The Volvo C70 convertible reappears in the sunlight in a new limited edition Inscription version with a number of unique and desirable features. The Inscription blends distinctive exterior details such as the painted grille and black 18-inch wheels with exclusive interior features, including Sovereign Hide upholstery and a leather-covered dashboard.

"The C70 is a true icon in our model range. The Inscription is based on our human-centric Designed Around You philosophy, offering those who love convertibles and coupes a beautifully detailed version with a lot of curb appeal," says Doug Speck, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at the Volvo Car Corporation.

The C70 Inscription boasts a turbocharged five-cylinder T5 with 250 hp and 273 ft-lbs. of torque. The Inscription will be available in two colours: Black Sapphire (Metallic) and Ice White (Solid).

Up front, the high-gloss paint on the grille and the LED Daytime Running Lights, both surrounded by contrasting chrome, give the C70 Inscription a distinctive "face".
