The C30 had a long gestation as Volvo showed numerous concepts exploring the idea of a premium compact vehicle. The production C30 is a compact FWD hatchback with seating for four. The C30 is loosely based on the S40 and shares its 227-hp inline-five cylinder engine. Pricing starts in the low twenties placing the C30 in competition with the Mini Cooper.
A new R-Design package is offered for 2009 replacing what was known as C30 version 2.0. The package includes a satin matte-finish grille with matching side mirrors, lower side moldings, a rear spoiler, and five-spoke wheels. The interior features a unique instrument package, unique seats, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.
