  • This all-new hatchback features a standard turbocharged 2.5L I-5 engine, mated to either a standard 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission.
  • The vehicle rides on a MacPherson front and multi-link rear suspension setup and has Volvo’s characteristic wide track and relatively long wheelbase.
  • Standard equipment includes stability control, anti lock brakes, auxiliary audio input jack, and in-dash CD player with MP3 and MPA playback capabilities.
  • The C30 features a unique Custom Build ordering process that allows for over 30 stand-alone options to be ordered, along with 17 exterior and 12 interior color combinations. It is the first Volvo offering “built-to-order” availability.
