Overview Information

The C30 is a compact 3-door hatchback from Volvo. The C30 has a unique interior with four bucket seats. Access to the cargo area is through a small inner hatch that doubles as the rear window. Introduced in 2008, the C30 has seen a number of changes over the years. The current model is powered by a unique five-cylinder turbo rated at 227-bhp.
