Engine 2.4 litre 5 cylinder turbo

The Volvo C30 concept shown at the 2006 Detroit Motor Show was designed to preview the 2008 production Volvo C30. Aside from minor styling details the two cars are almost identical.

Volvo developed the C30 to compete in the hotly contested compact car market and also fill a gap in their model lineup. The C30 has been designed for young professionals, singles, and couples without children.

To do this Volvo listened to what their potential clients wanted. A stylish, nimble runabout with 2 door and 4 seats was the consensus and so is the C30.

The C30 gets some of its style from the Volvo Safety Concept Car (SCC) and also the 3CC concept car, while also looking to the classic P1800 ES for inspiration for the rear glass tailgate. And despite its smaller size the car is clearly Volvo, especially from the front and rear angles.

Powered by a 2.4 litre, 5 cylinder, turbocharged engine making 260 horsepower running through a 6-speed manual gearbox, the C30 Design Concept reaches 60 mph in just 6 seconds, and continues on to a limited top speed of 150 mph.
