Smallest Volvo Soon to Join Volvo’s Showroom 

Smallest Volvo Soon to Join Volvo’s Showroom

Volvo has not spoken so much about its upcoming hatchback, but has announced though that it will introduce it at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It shall be called the Volvo C30 and it shall be Volvo’s smallest vehicle.

The Volvo C30, which is 8 inches shorter than the Volvo S40 sedan is expected to go on sale next fall in the US as a 2007 model. Not confirmed though, some say it will be based on the Ford C1 platform, which is also used for Ford Focus, Volvo S40 and Volvo V50 station wagon. The new Volvo C70 hardtop convertible, which was just recently launched at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, likewise uses this platform.


Inspired by the concept cars SCC and 3CC, the Volvo C30 is expected to get so much attention from auto press, car enthusiasts and even ordinary car owners. Volvo introduced the SCC concept car last 2001 and the Volvo 3CC in January 2005. These safety concept cars gained praises not only for their safety features but their excellent design as well.

With the increasing prices on fuel and infuriating traffic problems, this vehicle has a good chance of generating high sales, just like the Volvo C70. Hans-Olov Olsson, the chairman of Volvo Car and chief marketing officer of Ford, the parent company of Volvo said in an AutoWeek news that he believes in Volvo’s potential for growth in the US despite unfavorable euro-dollar exchange rate.

Can’t wait to drive that cute yet gutsy car?

I can’t either but I can’t afford to buy something so new and something so beautiful like that car yet so I’d be satisfied to just upgrade what I have right now, a 2001 Volvo S60. It’s a great car and I’m happy driving it.

I’m planning to get new Volvo tail lights, Volvo mirrors and Volvo wheels from Auto Parts Corner. If you have an old Volvo too, check out their wide variety of OEM-quality Volvo parts. They are perfect for your car upgrade. They have other auto parts as well, including the finest and most up to date Jeep parts, Mazda parts and Acura parts.
