Why the 2008 Volvo C30?

Exterior styling

It is extremely unique for a Volvo brand vehicle. It is simple and elegant. The rear of the vehicle is very unique with the tail lights, rear hatch being all glass and the stance of the car is aggressive yet smooth.

Interior styling

The interior styling as well is very unique and simple. The floating dash is fun and different the dials and controls are simple to understand yet functional for all. Really no need to explain anything or looking in the owners manual.

Audio & nav systems

The Dynaudio is AMAZING for a stock stereo system. Very good in just about all genera of music selections. Very versatile with audio input options.

Powertrain performance

The I-5 Turbo is a sweet little engine that packs some descent performance for a small car. The car is sporty but no pocket rocket either. A nice balance for performance and daily piratical driving needs.

Fuel economy

The fuel economy when drive correctly provides almost 30 MPG for Hwy driving.

Why Not the 2008 Volvo C30?

Rear seat room & comfort

The rear seats are a bit short on leg room.

Feature availability

There are none! Most options that one would expect from a car of this price to come with do not come on the C30, all are options and most require a custom build fee.

Price or payments

The price is a little on the high side for a car of this caliber.
