2012 VOLVO C30

Volvo has announced a raft of updates to the Australian-delivered C30 hatch for 2012. The updates follow a number of tweaks made to the C30 line-up earlier this year.

The 2012 model-year C30 updates apply to all variants, from the ultra-efficient entry-level DRIVe, through to the top-shelf T5 R-Design and the new T5 Lifestyle specification.

Sparking a price rise across the range, all variants are now equipped with Rear Park Assist and Volvo's High Performance Sound system as standard equipment - previously a $2000 option when added together.

New 17-inch Spider Diamond Cut alloy wheels have been added to the range (depending on spec), along with two new colours: Hello Yellow and Caspian Blue.

C30 T5 Lifestyle

The new model year marks the debut of the T5 Lifestyle variant, specced similarly to the T5 R-Design.

Features include a power-adjusted driver's seat, leather upholstery, Active Bending Lights with washers, rain sensor wipers, a rear-seat centre armrest and a hard load cover for added security in the luggage area.

The T5 Lifestyle also features the new diamond cut 17-inch alloy wheels.

The top-shelf T5 R-Design gains silver mirror housings and 18-inch 'Midir' alloy wheels, along with the usual R-design upholstery, badging, sports pedals, mats, grille and sports body styling kit.

For an extra $800, all C30 variants can be up-specced with the Sports Chassis package, which adds stiffer springs, firmer monotube dampers, stiffer stabilizer bars and a quicker steering rack.


Mechanical Package
