Compact, Coupe, Hatchback, Luxury Cars - Auto, Wagon Comments Off

The 2012 Volvo C30 ranks 7.7 out of 10 for the upscale small cars category. The score was based on analysis of 58 published reviews and test drives of the Volvo C30 coupe and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

With a small trunk and a uniquely shaped glass hatch many testers have said that the 2012 Volvo C30 coupe is not a hatchback made to do work , however they do think that it has an attractive exterior design.

The 2012 Volvo C30 coupe does rank as the most attractive model in the class, attributed to its retro inspired glass hatch. Its turbocharged engine is powerful enough to satisfy most drivers, but less expensive hatchbacks competitors like the Volkswagen GTI has a lot more “UUMPH” than the Volvo C30 coupe. So if you looking for fast driving…you may want to look elsewhere.

The C30 is well equipped with standard features like Bluetooth, a USB port and HD radio, however the Volvo C30’s has small cargo area for transporting stuff and rear seats are little snug.

In the end, it is safe to determine that the 2012 Volvo C30 coupe is more designed for shoppers who want an attractive small car that handles weekly commutes with ease and store a few items in the hatch.
