2013 Volvo C30 T5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This is really a lovely car. We purchased the last '13 new in July'14. Auto trans, T-5. Did TONS of research beforehand. We are a Toyota/Honda family, so European is a departure, with trepidation. We have the Premier Plus package, not R-Design. Thus far, the car is beyond expectations; a joy to drive, beautiful to look at, and well made. It's QUIET inside, very powerful, and so different. You won't see them often, which is nice too. It's not a high performance hatch, and that's good, because we didn't want that. For those w/o kids, and a different hauling vehicle, this is a great commuter that spoils with luxury, is safe, and gives you confidence. No problems so far.
2016 update; no problems with the car; continues to be great, and has cool accessories you can get from Volvo. Only complaint is the doors don't have good detents so they fall back into you pretty easily. That's it.

2013 Volvo C30 T5 R-Design 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Have owned for 3 weeks now, and the smiles keep coming.
This car is very well put together, looks great, handles well, and has plenty of power on tap when you need it.
It is very comfortable as a daily commuter, even with the stiffer R-Design suspension.
As other reviews across the web have stated, the steering is a bit numb and the manual shift action a bit rubbery compared to other sport coupes/"hot hatches", but it makes up for it with how well the overall package fits together.
This is a car that somehow seems greater than the sum of it's parts.
Hard to explain.


Best Features

The sounds - the engine, turbo spooling, and 10 speaker sound system are a feast for the ears. The sights - just a beautiful car.
