First Small Hatchback Followup
By lgibsonjr on


2008 Volvo C30 T5 Version 1.0 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I purchased my C30 in December and after 9 months I wanted to provide a followup to my first review. I'm still impressed with its performance, handling, and overall feel. More than a few times I've needed the quick acceleration and my C30 has delivered without fail. Almost all my miles are city and zip around with a fairly heavy foot so I've been getting around 20 mpg. I'm sure I could get better if I were more conservative but thats not my style. If I had it to do over again would I buy the Volvo C30? Yes indeed.

Best Features

Initially I said the interior design was my favorite feature but after 9 months it has to be the drivers seat. Perfect driving position for me and it's very comfortable.

Worst Features

The front seat belts are back a bit too much and can't be handled without significantly turning your body. The doors are heavier than I would like but its probably the trade off for the safety of the vehicle.

There is no C30 Diesel option for sale in North America. :(
