Volvo has facelifted the C70 to give it the look of the S60 concept that was unveiled earlier this year. The new car has been unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show.
The refresh consists of redesigned front wings to give the car a wedge shape. New headlamps are angled upwards and larger intakes and larger recesses give the front end more aggression.
"We have carefully redesigned the front and rear of the car so they harmonise more with the larger Volvo models," said Fedde Talsma, exterior chief designer of Volvo Cars.
At the rear, the C70 gets LED lamps and larger lettering across the boot. A new Flamenco Red Pearl colour has also been introduced.
Inside, the instrument panel has been redesigned and Volvo says better-quality materials have been used.
"We have increased the exclusiveness of the interior materials and trim details to enhance the feeling of luxury," said Talsma.
Engines range from a 134bhp 2.0 diesel to the 227bhp T5 petrol.
