2009 Volvo C30

2009 Volvo C30 Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Volvo C30

  • Volvo's thin, floating central console looks as though it could not possibly be functional. It is, and it lends an air of Scandinavian cleanliness and restrained good taste to the C30 interior just as thin, light-colored wood furniture does to Swedish homes.

    - Automobile
  • The C30 is one of the best-looking Volvos ever. We dig the Custom Build program that allows buyers to tailor color schemes and options, and styling cues such as the neat, all-glass hatch and muscular shoulders make the smallest Volvo an appealing proposition.

  • Liftover height for baggage is excessive, and it makes it difficult to hide baggage in the trunk area.

    - Automobile
  • Heavy doors swing way out when you park, oddly color-uncoordinated inside.
