C30 has a small body but is most expressively designed. Has a radical and refreshing appearance. Unique appearance creates a different personality. Volvo offers a large selection of options including the introduction of new color combinations – Espresso / Blond, colors, and accessories that allow customers to personalize their C30.
To complement the Volvo C30’s dynamic style, an optional Sports chassis is available to give a much sharper ride. Standard on the R-DESIGN model, the Sports chassis is also available as an option on certain models in the SE and Lux SE trim levels.
The Volvo C30 has four separate seats. The rear seat is mounted to the center line of the car, increasing the head and shoulder room. “We believe that four seats, not five, is the right approach,” said Mr. Abrahamsson, Project Director C30. ‘Four seats means great rear seat comfort for both rear passengers. Five will be a compromise. In addition, Volvo has many five-seat cars. If you want five seats, you can buy a Volvo S40 or V50 Sportswagon sedan. For most trips, we doubt whether the rear seats will even be used. Mostly, the rear seats may be folded flat, providing exceptional cargo space. ‘Back to the Volvo P1800S icon, another feature that has been continued to this new model is the special truck tub of glass that offers exceptional rear visibility. A cargo cover is available to protect the item from the peeping eye.
There is a choice of seven engines (three gasoline and four diesel), including four and five cylinder units. The gasoline range includes a light, efficient 100 PS 1.6-liter, 145 PS 2.0-liter and five-cylinder T5 model producing 230 PS which can reach 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds. The four diesel engines include road tax that was released by the 109 PS 1.6D DRIVe engine, which has CO2 emissions of only 99g / km, plus four new cylinders 115 PS 1.6 D2 and five cylinders 150 PS 2.0 D3 and 177 PS 2.0 D4.
The Volvo C30 is also a very safe car in an accident. Safety innovations include the Inflatable Curtain to protect front and rear passengers, seat belt presses, Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) and Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) plus SIPS airbags. In addition, each Volvo C30 has DSTC (Dynamic Stability and Traction Control), and ABS brakes with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) and EBA (Electronic Brake Aid).
