2008 Volvo C30 Review

2008 Volvo C30 Review  - Reviews - Volvo C30

The once utilitarian hatchback has become the new cool car (again), with automakers flooding the market with small, uniquely styled models. Volvo's new four-seat C30 joins the Mini Cooper — the car that really rejuvenated this segment — and the Volkswagen GTI in the premium-hatch subcategory.

Like the Mini Cooper, the C30 is defined by its styling. The Volvo's interesting shape sets it apart from its competitors, and it also has a healthy dose of athleticism thanks to its turbo five-cylinder engine and sport-tuned chassis. I know what you're thinking, but I'm not pulling your leg: The C30 really is a Volvo, and it's one that has the goods to create a loyal group of followers like the Cooper and GTI enjoy.
