The Volvo C30 has as many
looks as you do. Thats why
there are more personalization
opportunities than ever before,
why this four-seater is a world
leader, and why your individuality
couldnt be in a safer place.
Thats why you drive one.
Its different.
But thats not the only benefit.
Nature makes sure we all start out unique. And the Volvo C30 can
help you stay that way. First-class comfort, world-class safety and
elegant Scandinavian design are all part of the special Volvo DNA
and instantly apparent here. At first glance youll notice unique
Volvo design details such as the big, bold iron mark on a large,
trapezoidal grille, aggressive headlamps that sweep back gracefully,
yet peer out protectively, and demonstrative rear lamps that include
state-of-the-art Emergency Brake Lights that warn cars behind
when you brake harder than normal. Add to that exceptional road
holding and scores of exterior and interior customisation
possibilities - including the sporty R-DESIGN trim - and youll
discover that the Volvo C30 is highly qualified to protect you and
yours - especially from boredom.

180˚ from a cup of cocoa
and a book.
Fun does not stay home at night. It is not a limited resource.
And there is no embargo against it. Practically speaking then, fun
is the way to go. And thats good news for us because with wheels
at the corners, a frame of high torsional-rigidity and a suspension
that deftly masters quick corners as well as long commutes, the
Volvo C30 swiftly liberates fun from the confines of the ordinary and
fundamental - and keeps it going, day in, day out, all year round.

Lower chassis. Raise pulse.
The excellent handling characteristics of this car are made
even more responsive when you choose the R-DESIGN.
Its stiffer springs, stiffer bushings and sport-tuned roll
bars make it easy to establish a fondness for the roads
you travel. Along the way, you may discover a few favorite
turns that always seem happy to see you, too. By all means,
shift down another gear and say hello.

Buckle up.
Settle in to one of the worlds most
comfortable drivers seats and youll find
everything you need close at hand. The
unique floating center console presents
intuitive controls for the infotainment and
climate systems and is available in a variety
of finishes, including Volvos real wood and
real aluminum inlays. The overall effect
is stimulating, yet the modern Scandinavian
design also invites you to relax - while
wearing the stylish 3-point safety belt that
Volvo invented for you, of course.
10
Improvise.
Modern physics suggests a certain amount of
fundamental randomness in the universe, which
makes the versatile Volvo C30 perfect for impromptu
shopping. Like every Volvo, this car is built to provide
an intelligent mix of performance and practicality.
For example, the seating and storage configurations
are flexible enough to provide excellent loading
capacity as well as a flat cargo floor. Of course,
roof-mounted carrying accessories are also available.
12
Facets make the jewel.
How will your Volvo C30 catch the light? As you imagine all the possible exterior variations
and narrow your choices to your select favorites, you can begin to realise your ideal car.
Styling kit? R-DESIGN trim? 18" wheels? Roof spoiler? Sunroof? Chrome tailpipes?
Active Dual Xenon headlights? If you want to see these combinations in real time before
you finally decide, you can build your own virtual versions at www.volvocars.us
Fun knows where more fun is.
In a car thats fun to drive, being stuck in traffic is hardly ideal. Of
course, the audio system in the floating center console can provide
plenty of amusement at any speed, but its the Real Time Traffic
(RTT)* system that can really help keep the fun rolling. In addition
to its helpful GPS navigation functionality, the RTT system can help
you avoid traffic delays. Detailed maps are stored on a hard disk,
easily updated by DVD and easy to search for data, information,
knowledge, understanding, wisdom - or just directions to a party.

Be quiet, tomorrow.
Music is life. And Volvos modern sound systems are among
the best in class - especially with the latest generation of
Dolby® Pro Logic® II Surround and extremely efficient digital
Class D amplification*. The Dolby® Pro Logic® II Surround
utilizes a center loudspeaker and sophisticated sound processing
calibrated especially for the interior of the Volvo C30. This system
ensures that every passenger enjoys a well-balanced stereo
presence regardless of seating position - a remarkable
achievement considering that nobody sits in the middle of
the car. Using Bluetooth® with streaming audio, connect your
iPod® or USB player and your playlists are easy to select and
your music is ready to travel, non-stop.
* Included in the Platinum trim level

Avoid accidents
even when parked.
Volvo safety doesnt stop when you park your car. With
Approach Lighting, your car can be illuminated, inside and
out, using your remote control as you approach your car,
and with Home Safe Lighting, you can also activate a
dipped beam with the headlight stalk as you leave your car.
This feature can be especially convenient when your
personal celebrity spotlight operator has the night off.
And with the keyless drive*, the doors will unlock as
you grasp the handle - like magic - and you can
start the car without inserting the key (as long
as you have the key in your pocket or purse).

Innovated for your enjoyment,
the Volvo safety technologies will
protect more than the fun of driving.
Across the world, Volvo equals safety. And that comes with good reason, because few
carmakers can match our record of safety innovations and the commitment for safety that
has guided us for more than 85 years. Of course, this makes us extremely proud. But were
not satisfied. Because we know what we want to achieve: zero accidents. This huge task
calls for innovative thinking and a brand new approach to the way we design cars. Good
news is weve already come a long way. For starters, our cars are more fun and engaging to
drive than ever (because a bored driver will never be a safe driver). Neither is the technology
needed any figment of the imagination - some are already available. This means driving a
Volvo today is like having a first peek at a very exciting automotive future - a future where
passionate engineering and design do more to help you get the most out of life.

Personal gatekeeping.
Inspired by fighter aircraft technology, the Intelligent Driver
Information System (IDIS) can help reduce your workload in
stressful situations.
Rain support.
For more comfort in wet conditions, the rain sensor automatically
engages the wipers if it begins to rain or if water splashes onto
your windscreen.
An eye on the blind spot.
The optional Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) helps you detect
vehicles entering your blind spot.
Stay on track.
Volvos standard Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC)
anti-skid system improves handling and safety in a wide range of
challenging situations.
On-road enlightenment.
The Active Dual Xenon headlights* expand your vision range
when driving in the dark and provides considerably improved
illumination around bends.
* Included in the Premier Plus and Platinum trim levels
Exhilarating comfort.
Ergonomic design in seats and the drivers environment makes you
relaxed and helps you maintain your concentration on driving.
Designed to catch the light brilliantly,
this car also reflects a promise.
Thankfully, the automotive industry is moving away from fantasyland to the real world. Our
journey towards a better environment started already in the early 70s. Then we were among
the first carmakers to acknowledge the environmental downside of cars and to do something
about it. Since then we are constantly innovating to reduce the environmental impact of the
cars and how we make them.
In the near future we will introduce new technology such as plug-in hybrid vehicles that will
further reduce CO2 emissions and can be charged from a standard wall socket. And were
heavily engaged in the development of electrical vehicles - a technology that will dramatically
reduce the environmental footprint of our cars and make them even more fun to drive.
Good for you, and for the world we share.

Cleaner exhaust.
Fast responding after a cold start, Volvos advanced emission
control eliminates between 95 and 99% of carbon monoxide,
hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides from engine exhaust gases.
healthier interior materials.
All our upholstery and interior textiles are tested for specific allergy-
inducing or harmful substances. And several interior metal parts are
tested with regard to contact allergies. Good for you, and for anyone
who shares your ride.
FRESH cabin air.
Continuously monitoring the incoming air and shutting out carbon
monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide, Volvos Interior
Air Quality System, included in the optional Climate Package, helps
ensure that the air you breathe in the car is cleaner than the air
outside when driving in heavy city traffic.
85% recyclable.
To help minimize its total environmental impact, every Volvo is
designed to facilitate recovery and recycling at the end of its
useful life.
Fuel-saving design.
To reduce energy loss from air and roll resistance, we utilize
advanced aerodynamic design, lightweight materials and low-
friction technology. Together with state-of-the-art engine
technology, this lowers your CO2 emissions and helps you travel
further on less fuel.
Lights for lower emissions.
The LED daytime running lights* integrated in the frontspoiler not
only add to the looks of your Volvo - reducing energy consumption,
these efficient design details also contribute to lower CO2 emissions.
