Volvo C30 R-Design Limited Edition

Volvo announced a new Limited Edition C30 R-Design, a model that will go on sale in April. It seems that the starting price was established at $25.700 and it brings new levels of style and unique appointments to the smallest and most expressive car in the Volvo lineup. At the beginning, the new model attracts attention with its distinctive exterior enhancements. The premium touches include a matte-silver finish for the outside mirror housings, front grille and a lot more. On the grille, the new C30 features the R-Design badge. The ones interested should know the carmaker is offering it with four exterior colors. Other additional exterior enhancements that add to the dynamic personality of the C30 R-Design are the sport body kit, tailgate spoiler, large diameter exhaust tips and so on. On the inside we can find seats that are swathed with off-black Flex-tech while the cushions and backrests are trimmed in contrasting colored leather. This is not all. The new C30 has a blue-face instrument cluster and the super-slim center console is finished with a unique inlay with subtle circular patterns that take the standard aluminum inlay to the next level. Additional features include sport pedals, sport shifter and floor mats. Under the hood it hides a turbocharged T5 5-cylinder engine capable of developing 227 horsepower and 236 lb. ft. of torque. To transfer the power to the road, the engineers have offered 18-inch Atreus wheels and Sirius Sattellite Radio with a 6 month introductory subscription as standard equipment, customers can also select from a list of options: a 5-speed Geartronic transmission, DVD-based navigation system with real time traffic, Climate Package, power glass moon roof, bi-xenon headlights, Dynaudio premium sound system, Serapi alloy wheels and the list goes on.
