The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Volvo C30 connects "small" and "premium" in most of the right ways in an attractive, high-quality hatchback. The TT is a little more engaging to drive than before, but it doesn’t stand out in the crowd quite like the original one did when it was new.
