Confusing numbers and letters at Volvo, whose primary meaning, e.g. V for estate car, not always is maintained. No matter how the numbers are, under the bodywork the C 30 is largely identical with the S 40 and V 50. The body remembers after a long interval at the P 1800 ES better known as 'Snow Witch coffin'. The name is based on a classical coupe form of the P1800, which in the course of the model development has been transformed into an estate car coupe.

Complete safety equipment including blind spot warning

So also the C 30 has a backward elongated roof. However, it inclines up to the end and results in a vertical and a much smaller glass hatchback compared with the original. Also the rear side windows are shorter and ends with a very low height by the wedge shape of the sheet metal parts and the sloping roof. The coupe-styled model remains. At the roof edge a spoiler is added.

Diesel or petrol top engine: about 10,000 € additional charge

Since even the 2.5-liter five-cylinder fits as top engine, the develops despite the relatively light charging with 0.55 bar a due temperament. Back there are accordingly only two seats, in front up to including dashboard are barely visible differences to the S 40/V 50. Of course this includes also the Volvo-specific storage place front of the center console. 04/12
