Test Drive #43 - 2013 Volvo C30 Polestar
This week we took out Volvo's hot hatch, the limited edition C30 from the
fine racing folks at Polestar. It is a nimble little car and fun to drive.
Also, we're pretty sure the size of the gear selector has nothing to do
with the fact that Volvo is now owned by the Chinese.

Vehicle Research Center. IIHS is crash testing the 2013 Volvo XC60 in one
of their newest tests - the small overlap front test. On this episode of
The Downshift, learn why this kind of front overlap impact has such a
reputation for killing cars and their passengers, and find out if the Volvo
XC60 passes the test.

2010 Volvo C30 (Hatchbacks Pt. 3) - Everyday Driver

how the Volvo C30 holds up next to the MazdaSpeed 3 and GTI. Then they
argue about which one is best. For other reviews and more go to
CRASHES 2013 Volvo FH
The driver of a new Volvo FH would emerge from an 80 km/h collision without
any serious injuries. And if the truck rolled over, there is an emergency
exit at hand. But not only the driver's safety has improved.
Thousands of simulated collision tests and about 100 real crash tests have
allowed Volvo Trucks' engineers to develop a safer truck cab. For instance,
high-strength materials such as dual-phase steel have been used in
collision-absorbing beams and in the doors. The cab too uses the strongest
steel available today for body panelling -- ultra-high-strength, thermoset,
press-moulded boron steel.

Let's Talk Cars - 2012 Volvo C30 R Design Review Test Drive
Miami's Community Newspapers Presents "Let's Talk Cars" Featuring
automotive editor, Ron Beasley.
The Volvo C30 is a two-door hatchback that's sporty, functional and has a
lot to offer in the way of standard equipment.
The C30 has been around since 2007 and shares most of its mechanicals with
the Volvo S40 sedan. But it has less standard equipment, making it Volvo's
lowest priced vehicle.
The C30 was restyled last year with a new front fascia, new fenders, a new
honeycomb grille and new trapezoidal headlights. So there is no design
change for 2012.
Two new trim levels have been added to complement the base T5 and R-Design
models - Premier Plus and Platinum. Premier Plus adds a power glass
sunroof, power driver and passenger seats and LED daytime running lights.
Platinum adds more technology, including all the features of Premier Plus,
and a 10-speaker, 650-watt Volvo Premium Sound System with Dolby Pro Logic
II surround sound, a navigation system with real time traffic and Sirius/XM
With its compact size, smart design and peppy turbocharged five-cylinder engine, the Volvo C30
really is run to drive. With its relatively wide front and rear tracks and
long wheelbase, it has exceptionally stable driving characteristics.
Under the hood, there's a 227 HP 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine. It's mated to
either a standard six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed geartronic
automatic with the auto-stick function.
The front-wheel drive C30 gets pretty good fuel economy at 21 miles per
gallon around town and 30 MPG on the highway.
The C30 T5 comes standard with a healthy roster of standard equipment,
including dynamic stability and traction control,
Volvo's side impact protection system and whiplash protection seating
system, T-Tec upholstery, a leather gearshift knob with aluminum inlay,
cruise control, a high performance 160-watt audio system, iPod/USB and
auxiliary inputs, High Definition radio, and Bluetooth integrated
Other enhancements for all c30s include a standard center armrest for rear
seat passengers and standard security alarm. A new exterior color has been
added -- Caspian blue metallic.
Pricing on the Volvo C30 T5 ranges from $24,950 to $31,850.
