What it Is
Built for the young and the young at heart, the 2008 Volvo C30, as debuted at the 2006 Paris Motor Show, has a style that is unmistakably Volvo yet with a razor sharp edge. When it hits the streets in 2008, the C30 will surely be safe, and it will probably be dependable, based on recent new vehicles introduced by Ford’s Premier Automotive Group’s (PAG) shining star. It will surely, hopefully, desperately, be fun, given that it’s based on platform that brought such stars as the Mazda3, European Ford Focus, and Volvo S40. This one’s a keeper and we look forward to seeing – and driving – the production model as soon as our Swedish friends ship it across the Pond.
