Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 29 highway (manual); 21/30 (automatic)
U.S. EPA





Purely on the basis of carrying passengers or cargo, the 2011 Volvo C30 isn't a very green choice. With fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city and 29 or 30 highway—figures that would seem about right for a mid-size, V-6 sedan—it's hardly impressive.

If it's any consolation, our editors have seen figures well within that range, even in enthusiastic driving; in one drive of the C30 in a particularly cold winter snap, we saw 23 mpg overall.

Also, if you consider that the C30 is up against sportier hatchback models, not the mainstream ones, it begins to fit in a bit better—with its thirst about the same as the Mazda3 with the larger 2.5-liter engine.

Conclusion

While the 2011 Volvo C30's numbers aren't bad, they're unimpressive after you size this little hatchback up.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
