Volvo C30 Facelift With Styling Package

Volvo developed the C30 and now a facelift version is available. It appeals to customers who spend most of their time in the city environment and who impose considerable demands on the design, driving properties and personality of the car. The new C30 will be revealed for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009. It also offers a range of new interior options. One of the new features is the luggage compartment cover in the rear, which uses a new material and a new graphic pattern to further enhance the modern image of the car. The exterior detailing is completed by a dramatic interior where the pattern of the floor forms a world map. The new optional sport chassis is considerably sharper, with stiffer, more distinct properties than previously. The dampers are stiffer and are now of the exclusive mono-tube type that builds up pressure much more quickly. The new sport chassis is available in all C30 versions except for 1.6D DRIVE. As of spring 2009, the Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVE is available with an advanced start/stop function that switches off the engine when the car is at a standstill, for instance at traffic lights or in a traffic queue. All the engines are extremely compact and installed transversely in the engine bay for the best possible safety and maximum cabin space. The turbo technology is used in the T5 engine and all diesel engines to deliver the best possible performance. The T5 engine, the D5 and the 2.0D send the power to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission, the 5-cylinder petrol and diesel engine use a 5-speed automatic one and a 6-speed Power-shift automatic is available for the 2.0D and 2.0 petrol engines. The new Volvo C30 is available with a choice of 13 different exterior body colors and with the lower spoilers in five different colors. The model can also be equipped with a choice of three different audio systems, a variety of safety and security functions, parking assistance, Bluetooth and a lot more, just to please the buyer.
