Volvo C30 hatchback (2007 – 2013)

The Swedish manufacturer has stepped out of its usual territory with the Volvo C30 and given us an unconventional coupe-like hatchback. It’s not the most practical, but it has integrity.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The most radical part of the Volvo’s interior is the lack of a nominal third seat in the rear. It has two sculpted seats, with an arm rest between them, but having one less seat than normal will limit the car’s appeal. The dashboard is typical Volvo fare – well laid out, but minimalist. It also has Volvo’s trademark ‘floating’ centre console, which allows for some useful storage, behind the thin fascia. The optional sat-nav system was a nice touch, with its pop-up screen and remote control, and the upgraded Dynaudio stereo was one of the best we’ve heard in this class.
