The boot capacity is 278 liters, with the rear seats lowered 920 liters. It is only available with three doors, which gives it a sporty look, but because of that it loses its practicality - access to the rear seats is not practical. Inside comfort guarantees a wheelbase of 264 cm.

The Volvo C30 safety equipment includes front and side airbags and curtain airbags and ABS and stability control. At the Euro NCAP crash test, the Volvo C30 scored the highest.

The petrol engines of the Volvo C30 include: 1.6 100hp, 1.8hp 125hp, 2.0hp 145hp, with the first models available as a 2.4 fifth cylinder 170hp, T5 230hp.
The diesel engines on offer with the C30 are: 1.6 with 109 hp, 2.0 with 136 hp and 2.4 D5 with 180 hp. Since 2008 it is available as DRIVe.

The Volvo C30 is based on the chassis of the S40 model and behaves safely and excitingly while driving. It is very agile in corners and has a good steering response, but it has a small dose of artificial feel. That’s why the C30 doesn’t have the sporty features as the car’s exterior suggests. On wet roads, the drive wheels can slip.
