Beside the somewhat unconventional design of the rear side, Volvo tried to give the C30 some other things to catch the attention of young buyers. From this point of view, the car comes fitted with several systems that improve either the comfort, ergonomics or safety behind the wheel.
The first thing we must mention is the audio system. Supporting USB and AUX connectivity, in-car audio system is just great. Our car was equipped with the optional High-Performance audio configuration with 8 speakers and 40W amplifier. Furthermore, audio controls were mounted on the steering wheel, so the driver can safely pump up the volume without taking his eyes off the road.
The USB support works smooth and easy and all you have to do to access the pendrive is to plug it in and switch to the USB mode using the console-mounted controls. Both the USB and the AUX ports are located in central armrest.
Besides the audio system, the car features Emergency Brake Lights (EBL), which automatically turn on the emergency lights under hard braking, Home Safe lights to illuminate your road once you turn of the engine, folding and power exterior mirrors and auto-dimming interior mirror.
Other features worth mentioning are the adaptive Bi-xenon headlights and the heated front seats, which are both available as an optional package priced at around 800 Euros.
Power windows for both front doors (the rear windows cannot be opened), cruise control, under-dashboard illumination for the front passengers and lights for both sun visors are all offered as standard on the version we tested.Continue reading
