The Volvo C30 is a compact SportsCoupe from Volvo aimed at youthful, sporty drivers. The smallest yet most expressively designed of all Volvos, the C30's interior is equally stylish with Volvo's unique, ultra-slim centre stack, individual seats for four adults and the deep, distinctive glass tailgate for easy loading.
Closely based on the styling of the Volvo C30 Design Concept, first shown at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the C30 is the 'ultimate manifestation of Volvo's current design language,' according to Peter Horbury, Volvo's design director. 'It has the broadest shoulders and the most expressive lines. The Volvo C30 is a car that will engage buyers emotionally.'
There is a choice of seven engines (four petrol and three diesel), including four and five-cylinder units. The petrol range includes a light and efficient 100 PS 1.6-litre, 125 PS 1.8-litre, 145 PS 2.0-litre, plus one five-cylinder model - 230 PS T5 that can achieve 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds.
