Benefits of Driving a 2012 Volvo C30 Hatchback

With room for four, a sport-tuned suspension and styling reminiscent of Volvo's 1800ES of the 1970s, the 2012 Volvo C30 appeals to a wide range of buyers. And just because it's fun doesn't mean it can't be responsible; Volvo's reputation for safety and reliability puts it at the top of its class among other small cars priced under $30k.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the Volvo C30 sees some of its trim and options packages revised, with the introduction of Premier Plus and Platinum trims available for both T5 and R-Design models.

Model Strengths

  • Sporty driving feel, turbocharged 5-cylinder engine, compact size, Volvo safety and reliability

Model Review

The 2-door C30 is a premium compact featuring a prominent glass rear hatch like the 1800ES wagon of the early 1970s. It's the smallest car available in Volvo's lineup and last year's major exterior styling updates help to differentiate it from Volvo's S40 sedan and V50 wagon.
