Volvo Boosts C30 With R-Design

March 24, 2008

Volvo Cars of North America has announced that the limited edition C30 R-design will be available in April and priced at $25,700, not including destination.

The C30 R-Design is a striking version of the new C30 hatchback. A car tweaked like this new version has to have the power to back up the tuned look, and the C30 R-Design has just that--a 227-horsepower engine that produces 236 ft-lb of torque. It's a version of the 2.5-liter turbo five-cylinder that makes 218 hp in lesser C30s.

Four exterior colors--Black Sapphire, Titanium Grey, Orinoco Blue, and Passion red--make the car hard to miss. With a sport body kit and matte silver mirror housings, Volvo’s new “R-Design” badge seems to set out on the right foot.

The sporty feel of the car carries over to the interior. Black Flex-tech seats trimmed in cream-colored leather trim out the four-place cabin. The steering wheel and shifter are also trimmed in leather, and sport pedals are fitted to replace the stock ones.

Options on the car include DVD-based navigation, a power glass moonroof, and a Dynaudio premium sound system.
